molo’s exhibit at The Temporary Museum for New Design 2011 will show the studio’s continued exploration of lightweight, flexible building systems made from paper and textile space dividers, flexible furniture and lighting. A series of natural brown paper caves will be constructed from stacked columns of flexible paper blocks (part of molo’s family of modular partitions – softwall + softblock modular system). A lounge area leading to molo’s exhibit will be reconfigured daily with molo’s flexible seating system – softseating. The paper stools and benches will be stacked in low hill one day then used as a winding, serpentine bench the next.
The large, experiential installation will also be a physical representation of molostore.com with parts of the exhibit showing multiples of molostore exclusive products inspired by the launch of molostore including molo’s new (plugin or portable) luminary – hobo lantern, hobo felt bag, cappello lamp and float glassware. For the duration of the show, everything will be available to purchase!
Mobile-like clusters of luminous paper clouds will be suspended overhead. The mobile structure will allow for a broad canopy of cloud forms, hung from a single point, to provide light and a sense of intimate enclosure. We will also show urchin softlight with a new LED armature that will be available in the coming months.

molo’s float glassware in TRON:Legacy
float is a line of thermally resistant glassware designed with simple forms and clean lines. The suspended bowl creates a lens of liquid colour that projects onto the table top. Each piece is handcrafted by master glassblowers in the Czech Republic from the finest German borosilicate glass.
float is available exclusively on molostore.com
We are also excited to see our friends from You Can Group in Milano! Below are some playful images of the Italian countryside in the spring with softseating fanning stools (molo’s flexible paper seating).
