‘Living Wall’ by Frans van der Wielen for Ahrend (NL)

Frans van der Wielen's 'Living Wall' for Dutch design manufacturer Ahrend, as shown at Interieur 2010 in Kortrijk

Dutch design manufacturer Ahrend’s ‘Living Wall’ caught our eye at the Interieur 2010 design biennale in Kortrijk. The pleasingly graphic, modular nature of the panel system, which serves both an acoustic function and allows the user to incoporate function-specific elements (such as seating, storage and phoning) into it, looked particulary striking in-situ at Ahrend’s stand.

Designer Frans van der Wielen demonstrates one of the function-specific elements that can be incorporated into the modular panel system – seating

Here are some images of the installation.

The modular panel system serves both an acoustic and a more direct utilitarian function – seating, storage and a privacy-lending phone booth can be built into the wall
