'softblock' by molo
molo is a Canadian manufacturer and design studio dedicated to materials research and an exploration of space making. The paper room devider ‘Softblock’ designed by Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen exemplifies molo´s ideas of intimate, temporal space making and the original thinking behind all their products.
With LED application
The elements of the soft collection have been designed to be used and reused in variable and dynamic ways; replacing the need for more costly, inflexible alternatives of partitioning and arranging space. Despite being made from the light weight materials of paper and non-woven textiles, the honeycomb geometry lends these structures high strength and flexible resilience with an economy of material resource.
‘softwall’ and ‘softblock’ modular system consists of building blocks and free standing partition walls in a variety of sizes, two materials and three colours. All elements in the ‘softwall’ and ‘softblock’ modular system connect together with concealed magnets in an almost seamless way with the vertical joints blending with the rhythm of the vertically pleated structures.

‘softwall’ and ‘softblock’ further provides a medium for shaping acoustics and light within a space. The cellular structure and vertical pleats that run the course of an expanded wall serve to dampen sound while translucent or opaque versions of softwall can sculpt the light of a space.
Recognized for its poetic and pragmatic beauty and innovation, ‘softwall’ and ‘softseating’ have been acquired by several museums, including the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
