kutarq: JUST FOLD IT outdoor screen

the screen in opened position

Depending on the angle between each module with the contiguous one, the screen takes different spatial configurations. We can play with these combinations while obtaining greater stability of the entire set. One interesting point of this design is its flexibility: we can disassemble the modules in order to store and transport it (separated parts take up very little space). According to the characteristics of space partitioning, we can choose the number of modules to increase or decrease the length of the screen. Perforations on the surface generate less wind resistance; thereby stability increases and at the same time we obtain a slight visual permeability. To keep rigidity of the pieces, hole diameter decreases as it approaches the edge. This variable porosity creates a visual effect that varies with the angle and distance at which we are situated.
