stockholm-based textile designer akane moriyama has developed ‘eight-layers-screen’ an installation in front of a 10.5m-glazed window in the reception area of an office building. situated in the middle of city of nagoya, japan, the view from the glaze is covered by the neighbors’ monotone walls. the architects needed something to mediate between the inside and outside which blurs the view yet allowing natural light through.

the transparent sandwich consists of textile layers and air. the eight pieces of seamless fabric (w10.5m × h2.5m) are hung at 90cm in front of the window side. five segments of the scrim have laser-cut holes varying from 5mm-35mm square, making the depth of the screen visually ambiguous. when visitors walk to another room from the reception, 70cm-thick layers of screen react to the movement of air made by them.
