The Expandable Surface Wall was designed by Jacob Bek, Nacho Martí and Pablo Zamorano. The self-supporting structure features a dynamic pattern of cut-out slits. Constructed from birch wood, this modular partition stands as a functional wall while letting light into its cut-out elements.
This structure is expandable and digitally fabricated with the use of complex software. The designer trio experimented with paper panels when creating the dynamically designed piece that was later realized in 3D form.
Aiming to showcase a strong relationship between structure, materiality and fabrication, the Expandable Surface Wall is the perfect partition solution for an open-office space, event area or public interior. This durable and free-standing structure makes a spatial statement fusing aesthetics with function and a purposeful design.
