paper softblock

made from strong sheets of fire retardant paper, softblocks are flexible building blocks. Equipped with magnetic end panels, elements link together to form a folding wall, entire environments or long, winding space partitions and product displays. The modular system is intended to provide sustainable means of reshaping space for diverse use, a system that can change, grow and move with your changing needs.
