||Three screens are introduced into
an existing loft living space to create implied programmatic zones.
The first, a diaphanous fabric box lit by fiber optics is located
between the living and dining spaces. Its transparency and visual
weight vary with the change of natural and artificial light. The
second, a double-sided wall of bookshelves with an acoustic glass
layer defines a private study while adding a wash of color to the
light passing through. The third, a motorized scrim at the kitchen
masks the work area during dinners and gatherings. Printed with
a work commissioned from the artist Julien Bismuth, the screen becomes
both mobile artwork and backdrop for social events.
