Wilkhahn 2021: INSIT-SCREEN
The modular Insit Screen, designed by Wolfgang C.R. Mezger, turns Insit sofas into workspace pods with extra visual and acoustic privacy
The Screens were developed as a modular set of stand-alone rear panels, L-shaped corner solutions with side panels, U-shaped screens for stand-alone benches and C-shaped enclosures for two Insit benches facing each other.
As a result, the Screens can be combined with any model in the multipurpose bench range. The Insit Screen upgrade taps into a wide range of design options for agile furnishing. It can help partition spaces, divide up sectional seating in areas in the middle of rooms and lounges, or provide places to withdraw to in open-plan offices. The Insit Screens are attached to the seat frame, creating a total height of 135 cm and effective visual and acoustic privacy while people are sitting down. At the same time, they’re low enough not to dominate the appearance of the room, or the stylish, lightweight look of the benches.
The Screens’ edges are all tapered to produce a very slim contour and allow form-fit connection of the rear and side panels. This generates a softly rounded look to the outside and a curved miter-like joint on the inside. The striking double stitching on the fabric covers underscores the high-quality, precise craftsmanship. The panel combinations are just as diverse as the design options. In addition to the fabric covers from the Wilkhahn collection, which are also encountered on the benches’ upholstery, the Screens come in Hush Stripe 40 in a choice of 11 colors. The vertical ribs, each 4 cm apart from one another, also give the Screens a stylish, quilted look.
The slot-on Screens have a solid, spruce frame, which is fully upholstered with cut foam and covered. An inlay of perforated hardboard absorbs sound. The rectangular brackets are made of steel profiles that are screwed to the bottom of the benches’ seat frame. Consequently, there’s plenty of leg room and it’s easy to clean the floor. What’s more, this makes the modules easy to attach, remove and recombine, if spaces need to be reconfigured, or more face-to-face teamwork is required.
The Insit Screens transform the Insit range into an attractive, multipurpose furnishing system that encourages interaction and collaboration, or contemplation and deep work. The versatile and easy way the modules are combined responds to needs for more open-plan spaces, or privacy at all times. As a result, they can handle any challenges the future might bring.
Shelves and writing ledges are accessories that are easy to slot onto rear and side panels. Special inline connectors also allow linkage of several bank modules, even with Screens attached. Additional side-, connecting- and corner-tables round out the range.
