Loom Divide

22nd April 2014

Being a weaver once upon a time I was really taken by this Loom Divide, but was even more delighted by it when I realised it was designed by my friends Ruben and Golnar at RiveRoshan.

Shown during Milan design week as part of the Form and Seek collective at Ventura Lambrate their Loom Divide is a room divider based on the tradition of hand loom weaving.

Utilising what would be the warp and weft, the screen is made up of threads held on tension that can be interchanged to create different levels of visibility and a beautiful colour interplay.

They have used English bakers twine which gives the screen a delicate moiré effect diffusing the visibility but not blocking light. The design also utilises the tension of the threads for its construction with no glue or screws being used and allowing for woven hinge constructions.
