japanese architect shigeru ban has joined forces with french luxury brand Hermès to create ‘module H’, a modular screen and partition system unveiled at milan design week 2012 for their home furnishing collection. hearkening to a collaboration with french interior designer jean-michel frank in the 1930s, the aluminum panels may sculpt internal spaces or surface existing walls. the iconic and patented ‘H’ penetrates metal sheets in a stacked and loosely interlocking fashion, slightly offset to create an asymmetrical and grid-like pattern. the lightweight framework is supported with discreet steel supports which may be screwed into a wall and then concealed with a circular aluminum piece that matches the external finish.

based upon a 90cm square module, the system can accommodate a range of square or rectilinear components which may be inserted into the slots with a simple fitting. easily removed and adjusted, the elements can be upholstered with a range of colored leathers, skins and fabrics with trademarked designs for continuously changing and diverse motifs or murals. options for surface pigments include champagne, charcoal and silver.
