A light, airy, mobile wall whose surface structure can be changed at any time: that’s the idea behind the ‘Reverso’ separation system, which wins Yann Mathys his first Swiss Design Award and also marks his graduation from ECAL, the University of Art and Design in Lausanne.
‘Reverso’ is the product of a series of experimental research works using paper, a material that began to fascinate the young industrial designer during his studies. The small scales that make up the room divider consist of a material that is like paper, but much more stable: Tyvek, an extremely hard-wearing and mouldable non-woven fabric that is often used as packaging or for protective clothing. In ‘Reverso’ it is repurposed as an assembly of small individual parts that can be manipulated as desired.
The positions of the individual scales can be changed by hand or using a specially made squeegee. This enables the user to ‘draw’ a pattern, design or motif of their choice on the divider, depending on the situation, space or incident light.
