Arper extends the functionality of Parentesit to include freestanding models for increased privacy and comfort. Architectural in scale, these modules carve out a three-dimensional space for concentration or quiet conversation in shared workspaces or collaborative environments. Designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, Parentesit was created with a dual inspiration of minimalist art and classic Japanese interiors. To shift this approach to an architectural scale, Parentesit Freestanding has become a screen, capable of dividing a room in half, or partitioning off a space for quiet, independent thought. Modular by design, each screen can be combined to realize new spatial compositions that reinforce or distinguish it from its architectural environment. Parentesit Freestanding is able to stand alone thanks to its matte black metal frame. Modules are available in four options: two round panels of different sizes, one square panel, and one combination square and round panel. All panels are available in Arper’s full range of fabric options further engaging the expression of the end user.
Parentesit is a collection of decorative modular wall panels that offers comfort for contemporary shared spaces. The bold, graphic forms are available in three shapes — a circle, a square or an oval — that can be further customized with the addition of a speaker or ambient light, to create a visual element that is as functional as it is modern. The collection is now complemented by the Freestanding version, a modular stand alone system for concentration or quiet conversation in shared workspaces or collaborative environments.
