This past weekend found molo in Los Angeles, where a collaborative project with the Architecture and Design Film Festival had molo creating a unique screening room with softwall for Dwell on Design 2014. The screening room showed a selection of shorts curated by ADFF founder Kyle Bergman from the festival’s archives, as well as a new version of a stop-motion film by molo set to music by Ethan Rose.
Five 8′ (2.4m) tall softwalls, connected by modular magnetic end panels, created a seamless spiral form that guided visitors into its centre, where the cycle of short films was screened continuously. Designed by molo founders/designers Stephanie Forsythe + Todd MacAllen, softwall is an expandable partition made of paper or paper-like textiles. Its lightweight and expandable structure makes it perfect for temporary installations like the 3-day Dwell on Design event. Measuring only 2.5” (5cm) thick when compressed, each softwall expands to 15’ (4.5m) in length.
