Design: Braille Screen
Materials: 1" Baltic Birch Plywood, lacquered and finished
Designer: Danny Greenfield

"Based on the Braille system for binary encoding, these ethereal room dividers function as a double entendre between the original, conceptual logic driving the piece and its architectural double. Spelling out "If these walls could see", the matrix of dots which characterizes the nature of the screens are entirely subtracted from the width of the plank, so that the effect is no longer a haptic sensation but a remarkably visual one."


"This perceptual game of seeing through the "blind man's script" is an exercise in subtle exposure of space beyond (or space within), and act as a commentary between the notion of spectatorship and voyeurism. A sophisticated addition to any contemporary interior, these screens fold-up to alleviate crowded urban living.

Dimensions: three (3) screens each measuring 2'-0" x 6'-0". 1" thick Baltic Birch Plywood, lacquered and finished."

Designer: Danny Greenfield
Location: New York, NY
