In the Spanish pavilion we fell in love with this company, ABR, that produces these felt divider designs. Made of laser cut felt, hung on tracks and connected by magnets, these are really perfect light walls for creating privacy and cutting down on sound. They reminded us of our own attempt at felt doors.

This space divider, half curtain half screen, was first shown on the previous collection of ABR. A simple piece of felt with a perforated pattern turns the product into a decorative element as well. On the other hand, being made of felt it has the feeling of warmth that only textiles can give. Feel-Thru is available in two different versions: one with a pattern consisting of a basic line of circles, and other with a combination of comas, exclamation marks and asterisks.
The panels slide along a curtain rail fixed to the ceiling. Thus they can be spread out and folded up like an accordion. The different pieces are joined together with strong magnets that keep the panels folded and at the same time allow you to separate them easily, in order to organize new divisions for a space. This is what matters about Feel-Thru, that you have the power to easily modify its design thanks to the magnet set. New versions are on the way, using polyethylene foam in addition to felt."
