This DIY room divider is a combination of traditional and modern ideas. Pli is a contemporary take on a bi-folding screen that, at its core is an exploration of balanced tension. Existing somewhere between old ideas and new, between fibre and wood, soft and hard, textured and smooth.
The hardware has been replaced with cotton webbing straps and stainless steel double d-ring fixtures. The straps are secured into the frame with dowels, a traditional upholstery technique. The cotton webbing straps are also used to create the bi-fold action, with all the pockets and slots digitally fabricated with precision.
The screen is made from 10 oz. 100% cotton canvas duck and is also secured to the frame with the use of wood dowels and digitally cut slots.
