textile softwall

textile softwall is a freestanding space partition which may be shaped in countless curved or linear formations. When stored compressed, the folding wall shrinks to the thickness of a book. From its condensed state, it expands to an impressive 15′ (4.5m) long, or any length between.

the moveable wall can be spontaneously arranged as a room divider to absorb sound and establish privacy, or create a striking backdrop for an event or performance. As a modular system, each softwall + softblock has magnetic end panels that connect these flexible building blocks to create longer partitions and immersive, sculptural installations.

made from layers of textile structured with flexible honeycomb geometry, the walls are a new building material—relinquishing notions of rigid space making in favour of sustainable design to accommodate change over time and to encourage responsible material use.

recognized for elegant design and innovation, softwall is held in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

textile softwall is an easily portable, folding wall.

portable folding wall

the honeycomb geometry and soft material allows softwall to flex and curve, creating straight walls or serpentine structures. The walls flat-pack for portability and storage, expanding up to 15′ (4.5m) or any length between.

textile softwall + softblock share magnetic connectors that turn them into a modular partition system.

magnetic connectors

the final layer of softwall + softblock is a magnetic panel that folds on itself for stability, connects multiple walls and blocks to one another, or anchors the elements to ferrous surfaces.

colour

white textile comes to life when light shines through its delicate pattern of translucent fibres.

black textile softwall has an opaque sheen reminiscent of charred wood that highlights the subtle pattern of its fibres.

custom colours are available by special order.

material

the textile is made from nonwoven polyethylene. It is UV stable, dust- and tear-resistant, and easily cleaned with soap and water.

textile softwall and its paper sibling are 100% recyclable; both have been welcomed into Google Portico’s catalogue of healthy building materials.

molo's collection of paper furniture includes space partitions and paper lights.

LED

optional LED ribbons wind through the honeycomb cells to transform textile softwall into an expressive, luminous space partition.

A felt handle attached to softwall creates a poetic sliding door or room partition.

felt handle + steel strip

a white powder coated steel strip anchors the magnetic end panel of softwall to any solid surface. Pairing with a felt handle creates a sliding door evocative of shōji.
