COV by Matteo CibicItalian designer Matteo Cibic has conceived a range of partitioning glass screens, appropriately named ‘COV’, which play on the dichotomy of socialising in separation. Produced by FusinaLab, these delicate dividers are made from anodized aluminium and perspex and give a light and airy feel to environments such as office spaces, restaurants, bars or reception desks. The designs consist of subtle decorative details and come in various shapes and sizes including the fan-shaped ‘Flaneur’ model, all of which are defined by the joyful curves that are typical of Cibic’s works.

We’re constantly told that our manufacturing sector is on its knees, but somehow we have a near ceaseless production line of jerks. Produced by FusinaLab, these delicate dividers are made from anodized aluminium and perspex and give a light and airy feel to environments such as office spaces, restaurants, bars or reception desks. “You find yourself in a desperate queue, poring over safety ratings and losing sleep over your bank balance,” she wrote.

Hinoki by Federica Biasi Wallpaper* Handmade 2018 veteran, Federica Biasi, has designed a range of freestanding and tabletop panels called ‘Hinoki’ for Italian office furniture maker Manerba. Last year, she suggested in a separate FT piece that the country might be reaching a consensus on social care funding, writing that there was a “strong moral argument for putting personal care on the same footing as the NHS: free at the point of need”, and adding: “There is a practical one too. It should go without saying that his behaviour was abhorrent, but given the events of the past few years it’s worth reiterating – racism is bad and you shouldn’t do it. These slim panels come in subtle tones that are based on the chromatic scheme of Manerba’s existing product line. Made from polycarbonate, which was chosen for its wearable, scratch-resistant and flexible qualities, the translucent panels physically divide spaces without compromising the feeling of spaciousness. She said: “I am a fan of the sophisticated social care insurance funds in Germany and Japan, which pool risks and share the burdens across society. Thanks to the semi-transparent material, the panels still allow for a sense of closeness to others nearby, as shapes and forms can be discerned through the vertical surface. Wiley has been sacked by his management company and will face further deserved consequences for his comments. The panel can be freestanding, on wheels or attached to a desktop. Free personal care could be a foundation from which to build consensus – if it is allied to reform.' One social media user said: 'This is the same as prostitution.

The modular system has endless customisable potential with the option of additional accessories such as cork, magnetic board, hooks, elastics, shelves and mobile hangers, while for spaces that require more privacy it can be covered in sound-absorbing fabrics.  L20 Sofa by JaK Studio One of the biggest challenges in the face of the new work-from-home culture is the clash of our personal and work environments. The daughter of the historian Richard Cavendish, she studied PPE at Oxford University, where she was a contemporary of Cameron. If you have the audacity to belong to more than one of those groups, the hostility is multiplied proportionately. Award winning JaK Studio have designed a solution for this by redesigning the classic L-shaped sofa to transform into a working pod. This versatile sofa can be folded out into a sofa bed with bedside table or turned on its side to create a sound proofed work space. During the 1990s she worked as a business analyst and as CEO for a private-public partnership, before forging a career in journalism, spending a decade until 2012 as a leader writer and columnist at the Times, followed by a stint at the Sunday Times. Adapting to compact urban spaces, the L20 sofa concept looks at the most central feature in the home and how we can use this to transform the heart of the domestic space into a working environment. Oooh, ahhh, that’s how it always starts.

The idea behind the concept was inspired by JaK Studio’s director Jacob Low’s observation of his own children building dens during lockdown, using anything they could find around the home. For two years she was a non-executive board member of the Care Quality Commission watchdog. ‘It dawned on me that the limit to what we can use our homes for is infinite if we are creative. The sofa bed was a revolutionary piece of furniture when it was first designed but it has not evolved further,’ says Low. In May 2015, after Cameron won a majority, she was recruited to lead No 10’s policy unit. Instagram is owned by Facebook, and former employees have leaked information to NBC news suggesting that evidence they found of racial bias in the system was ignored by senior managers. Fitted with all the necessary work accessories including drop down desk, reading light, USB port and laptop charging points, this multipurpose piece of furniture gives us a real glimpse into future living. Saltine and Toast by Pair US-based Pair has devised two models of unobtrusive dividing screens for office spaces. But she resigned the Conservative whip within months, becoming non-affiliated, and as of October last year sits as as a crossbench peer.

The studio is specialized in functional furniture specifically for the workspace, and these two new projects expand on their expertise. We should have known that an organisation such as Facebook would cause problems. Saltine (pictured here) is a clever solution that attaches a screen on brackets to existing office desks, eliminating the concern of these structures taking up valuable floor space. In June 2017, she became chair of a charity working to improve social work practice and leadership. The adjustable height provides the user with the option of a completely enclosed private space or a more informal desk division. Made from materials that can be easily cleaned such as glass and acrylic, Pair has created a universal solution for a sanitised and focused desk space that reduces the spread of germs in compact working environments. It will undoubtedly be her intelligence, but perhaps more importantly her pragmatism, that No 10 will hope to call upon if it is to solve the social care funding riddle. And I don’t know if you’ve seen The Social Network or Batman v Superman, but without wanting to cast aspersions on Eisenberg’s versatility as an actor – those performances are identical. Toast is a floor-standing adaptation of Saltine: made from lightweight material, this screen allows for an adaptable work separation wherever needed, with the option of being turned horizontally or vertically depending on the height required.

This sound-absorbing panel comes in a variety of playful or subtle colours and tones. Made from recycled materials, it creates a quiet, private environment whilst also sparking collaborative innovation as its tackable surface is the perfect moodboard. Ben Kingsley played Mahatma Gandhi.  Screens by Tihany Experts in hospitality design, Tihany studio’s new solution to dining diligently in these unprecedented times is a series of elegant screens consisting of glass and wooden decorative panels created for his hospitality clients. These easily moveable and cleaned screens can be adapted in their design details to fit seamlessly with the interiors of the restaurant; so much so, that once in place they feel as if they have always been there. Providing a more intimate dining experience, the varying designs feature sleek geometric shapes evocative of the Art Deco style. Let’s face it, the film Gandhi would have been wildly improved by reimagining the Mahatma as a violent, profane customer in line with Kingsley’s performance in Sexy Beast, calling a “facking hunger strike” .

‘The screens are designed with wellness and comfort in mind, but they actually evoke a kind of public privacy that we feel might actually offer a positive spin on rebuilding the experience of dining out,’ says Tihany’s Managing Partner Alessia Genova. ‘It becomes an opportunity to focus on the faces and food in front of you while still enjoying the atmosphere, the service, and everything we’ve been missing while apart from our favorite restaurants’. These screens will help restaurants from Miami’s Novikov to Hong Kong’s Amber (pictured) as they navigate reopening safely and adapt to the new normal for dining out. Topics. Clikclax by Zahava Australian designer Zahava Elenberg has conceived a fun and uplifting desk tidy system which provides the necessary divisions to ensure a clean and safe working environment. Clikclax is a bright multicoloured and multi-purpose system of interlocking perspex sheets which nods to the vintage children’s game, Playplax, synonymous with toys in the 70s.

Comprising varying shapes and sizes of sheets that interlock with the cylindrical bases to form shelves, divisions and storage solutions, the desktop system has endless functionality and adaptability to be erected on any flat surface. ‘Clikclax is a verb as well as a noun,’ Zahava says. ‘My dream is to see people Clikclaxing all over the world — in a range of situations, from offices and co-working spaces to schools and student accommodation, hotels, galleries and libraries, at communal tables in cafes and restaurants, and on floors for kids to play together, apart. I can also see Clikclax working on a larger scale, as people-sized partitions and wayfinding demarcations. There’s nothing we can’t click together.

’ Dutch Invertuals When it comes to room dividers, this Eindhoven-based design collective is not trying to blend in. Their custom-made dividers available in four varying shapes (circular, oval, diamond and crescent) ensure safe surroundings are achieved with a light and uplifting aesthetic. Distinctive in their bold and bright material options of acrylic transparent, acrylic translucent and fabric, they can also be customised in shape, size and colour combinations upon request. The dividers, which are made in the US, can be combined and layered to create life sized, vertical geometric montages. Mounted on a powder coated steel frame on wheels, they are easily moveable and bring life to anywhere indoors in need of a safe and sanitised solution.
