In KIMU Design’s ‘New Old Divider’ the subtlety of the East and the boldness of the West are balanced and symbolized through the marriage of the paper fan and the frame structure.

“The paper fan incorporates transformative functions, allowing it to exist both minimally and decoratively.” says KIMU. “By varying its convertible features, the screen is able to create different spatial experiences.”

“In our product, we aspired to unify the contrasting personalities and representations between two cultures. This duality is also mirrored by the Paper Fan’s ability to exist across the spectrum between minimalist and decorative.”

“When the paper fans are collapsed within the metal frames, the simplistic aesthetic creates a sense of ethereality, which visually suggests at spatial separation; when the fans are allowed to expand into space another statement can be made, one that reflects the classic beauty of oriental aesthetics while providing an element of ornamentation to its environment.”
