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. '
