One of the highlights of imm cologne 2014 was ‘Reverso’, a revolutionary interactive separation system by Geneva-based designer/ ECAL graduate Yann Mathys.
The suspended room partitioner is interactive thanks to a unique texture that begs to be touched, and that interacts with touch, changing patterns on its surface.
The simple system consists of scales that react differently to light depending on their position. Manipulated with hands or a squeegee, the scales are moved to create new patterns.
The system has an adjustable mounting that allows it to be adapted to different situations. “It’s a culmination of a research project on paper matter.” says Mathys. “Constructed using T-yvek it is a strong and durable product.”
