Jiyoon Kim, Twist Wall Panels

The Twist Wall Panels - by Jiyoon Kim - was between projects selected from Melbourne Movement for exhibited at Salone Internazionale Del Mobile 2012.
'The Twist Wall Panels are acoustic wall panels derived from the folding patterns of three-dimensional square twist tessellation origami. Up to five units are assembled in any configuration to create an interactive moving module and different modules are arranged to create patterns on the wall.­
The units are attached together in such a way that when the user transforms one unit, it triggers a transition in all the units that are connected to it. The Twist Wall Panels are hand made from recyclable materials. Korean traditional rice paper, Han-Ji, was used to utilize its resilience and beautiful texture, and Echo Panels used as the base for sound absorption quality. The white paper was hand dyed with natural ingredients such as fruits and vegetables, and the vibrant yet unique colours are used to set the desired mood.­
Mechanisms that allow the inter-connected modules to effect each other’s movements, was inspired from the door handle locking system. Simple stud clips are used as a form of joinery between the edges of the mechanisms in each units, allowing the push and pull system to create the transitions in different units. '

Peter J. Pless Design - Milano 2012

Link series
"In order to achieve an object that is truly sustainable, social and personal values need to be embedded as an active component within the artifact. These filters listed, suggest a new paradigm of interaction and overall integrity that can be achieved. " PJP.
The LINK Series offers many configurations in order to adapt to any interior space. The concept for this series derives from the observation of the flexibility and modularity of mechanical components such as chains and cable carriers.
The flexible modules articulate amongst each other in different ways and can easily be added or removed. The pieces are elegant and really practical!
La LINK Series offre diverse soluzioni adattandosi a qualsiasi spazio. Il concetto alla base dell'idea deriva dall'osservazione della flessibilità e modularità degli elementi meccanici quali le catene delle biciclette.
I moduli si articolano tra loro in modi diversi e possono facilmente essere aggiunti o rimossi. Gli elementi sono allo stesso tempo eleganti e molto pratici!
