TRANSFORMING A SPACE

BEDROOM SPECIALISATION addresses the process of establishing a temporary transformation of a bedroom space for Hermione Granger, a fictional character from the movie Harry Potter: Prisoner of Azkaban. The project began with the client profiling and briefing, research of ideas, and site analysis of the natural lighting condition. The client requires private spaces that allows her to perform multiple activities at the same time. Therefore, the design aims to create an adjustable partition that also functions as a light filter, which serves to create a subtle, yet effective, ambience to the space. Inspired by Tara Donovan (Nebulous, 2002) and Tokujin Yoshioka (Honeycomb chair), this particular partition is designed by layered thin paper. These minute details contribute greatly to the richness and quality of the design, while at the same time, maintaining utility by its function as an adjustable partition when it is needed. Here, the client is invited
to constantly engage with the installation and contribute suggestions in respect of the use, fold, and roll of each of the individual layers in the partition.

Besides the flexibility of its form, the partition also allows the client to adjust the amount of light in her room simply by changing the density of the form.
