Modular screen wall
This project draws its inspiration from the activity of confession, and attempts to produce a tectonic translation of this experience in a contemporary context. The screen in the confessional room serves as divider and ensures ultimate privacy while by doing that becomes a means of liberation for the person confessing. Our proposal seeks to re-contextualize such a tectonic element as a freestanding piece of furniture, which aims to achieve interesting light and raytracing effects while allowing visibility only from certain angles. Traditionally such screens were constructed by repeating prefabricated elements, whose arrangement defined the level of transparency. Following this paradigm our screen wall consists of 80 laser cut wooden panels, which stand by interlocking sequentially. The panels are varying in shape achieving by that a gradient light and visibility effect from the one to the other side. “confessional wall” was designed and fabricated from Topotheque for “hybrids” design exhibition at Kalos&Klio Showroom in Thessaloniki.
