PAIS / Product design


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

In a modern office, we need products that are as flexible as today’s way of working. Common privacy screens are fixed and rigidly set the boundaries of the working environment. Our mission is to change that by providing a customizable shielding for workplaces that combines flexibility with modern design. PAIS is an easily adaptable partition wall, a magnetic pin board, a wall protection or an acoustic panel. With this product, the employees themselves have control over the privacy of their workplace and can individually adjust it to their different needs. PAIS is made of eco-friendly natural materials like felt and real sheep wool.
