francesco forcellini’s latest collection consists of wall dividers, lounge chairs and side tables that have been designed to suit the needs of flexible open space offices and relaxed areas. the wall dividers are sound and fire proof, and easy to build, disassemble and move once mounted. these requirements are achieved reducing the large variety of materials, that are usually involved in the construction of this kind of objects, to just one that has the right features. for this reason, the designer has developed a sound and fire proof textile, doing research and trying different approaches with the suppliers to obtain the right solution.

milanese based studio francesco forcellini‘s textile design is the core of the whole project. the material is mounted on an empty structure made of curved aluminum pipes. the elements are self-standing so it’s easy to change their disposition depending on the spatial needs. the collection is fully disassemblable and, therefore, can be stocked and transported as a flat-pack. due to their concave shape, the wall dividers can be aligned creating curves or straight lines. the lounge chair and the dedicated service side table are being designed to complete the relaxed areas of the open spaces. the first batch of objects are being produced entirely in italy with local materials for a private commission.
