Siba Sahabi’s ‘Mudéjar’ room divider is inspired by the Moorish architecture of 12th to 17th century Southern Spain.

“The so-called ‘Mudéjar style’ consists of constructive and decorative Middle Eastern forms combined with, for that time, contemporary Spanish building materials such as brick, iron and plaster.” says Sahabi. “The 17 ‘wallpaper groups’ (repeating two-dimensional patterns) are a characteristic element of the ‘Mudéjar style’ and can all be found at the famous Alhambra Palace in Granada.”

The design of the semi-transparent partition screen is based on a single triangular element that can be fixed in different directions in the aluminium frame of the screen. The 172 lightweight triangular elements, made of a mix of resin and chalk, have the appearance of concrete. “They translate cultural heritage into a contemporary interior item.”
