Parawall by Anne Lorenz Gives Dividers Another Task

As people come to appreciate open plan interiors, partitions become all the more useful. Parawall by Anne Lorenz offers an especially unique solution for inhabitants of studio and bachelor apartments.

The placement of a Japanese screen often suggests an absence of usable wall space, so the designer ingeniously offers a rather simple solution for additional storage.

The wooden panels that make up this system of separators come as a frame with four rectangles cut out, allowing one to explore three customizable options. The first is to leave these windows bare, so that the room divider simultaneously sections off, and reveals what's behind it. The second permits one to cover these gaps with slats. Lastly, and most compellingly, the Parawall by Anne Lorenz comes with cubby shelves that can be slotted into these openings, fastened in place with magnets.
