molo’s earliest ideas and concepts have always been a study of how to make better use of open spaces. When we were making prototypes of the soft collection, we looked more closely at smaller living spaces (starting with our own small apartment), which could interchange between living and workspace. We identified several challenges, but perhaps the most salient was managing the issue of privacy and storage capacity constraints.
moving from a small studio apartment to commercial settings such as open offices or retail environments, finding non-invasive ways to make a space more fluid with ease is in high demand. Ideas include noise-cancelling privacy screens, pop-up meeting rooms, modular furniture like seating, or flexible product displays, easily assembled, lightweight, and portable. How can you dynamically alter the makeup of a space without the need for construction or a lot of labour?
in principle, the “soft” concept is molo’s answer to flexible and efficient space division and utilization. We never dictate how to precisely use a room partition because users can adjust the partitioning of a room every time they put the softwall into use.

included in this solution were ideas that we think are highly sought after in all settings: ease of use, utility, durability, longevity, portability, storability and low environmental impact in manufacturing. Our modular products have been used in many creative ways, but here are just a few ways we have demonstrated recently using our studio.
