London designer Philippe Malouin explains how he spent a week making a host of experimental room dividers for Hem in this movie Dezeen filmed in New York for the Swedish design brand.
Malouin and Hem’s Study for Screens installation presented a range of different conceptual space-dividing screens during NYCxDesign 2017 last month.
“Study for Screens is a visual research project that is all about idea generation around screens and separating space,” Malouin explains in the movie.
“I spent a week at a WeWork making things non-stop. These screens are three-dimensional sketch models. They are ideas, they’re not finished products whatsoever.”
Hem presented seven of the 13 screens that Malouin made, alongside its latest furniture and lighting collections within the historic interiors of WeWork Bryant Park, a 1902 building by noted architects York & Sawyer New York.
Each visitor to the exhibition was given a printed pamphlet documenting all 13 creations, which Malouin made from an assortment of materials including upholstery foam, packing peanuts, plastic sheeting and even balloons.
