Tessel resurrects the domestic privacy screen and offers a fresh 21st century take on the classic furniture staple. Merging pragmatics with formal elegance, this portable room divider adds a sense of privacy and sophistication into any room it occupies.

Tessel is not your typical flimsy folding screen. The three-dimensional panels elevate something familiar and utilitarian into an object of desire. Tessel’s origami inspired design fits right into today’s contemporary aesthetic and appeals to range of household conditions. The screen divides spaces and creates privacy but also functions as a free-standing sculpture. Easily compacted or expanded, the screen reveals a continuous triangulated texture that shifts its optics depending on the light and its positioning in a space. The repeating panels can be rotated or flipped to articulate a variety of patterns and customization needs. As alluring as it is functional, Tessel turns the act of changing or space planning into a work of art.
