Wood ‘Swarm’ Screens: Dynamic See-Through Space Dividers


Dividing a space in a serious way can be a big design decision – especially in rooms that already are or feel somewhat small. These more decorative spatial screens offer something in between open-plan extremes and divided-layout plans.

Titled ‘Swarm’ by industrial designers Mike & Maaike, the name reflects semi-organic way in which the individual sticks come together to create a space-dividing system that still allows light and views through just like one can naturally see through a hovering cluster of bees or other flock of flying creatures in the sky.

Layered wooden slats overlap to make these pieces more modern than ornamental, while a wide variety of colors and dynamic positioning keep them from being too boring. Each angle results in a different composition, and adding more than one screen can create a layered visual experience.
