I was inspired by Alvar Aalto how designed this kind of screen in 1930`s. Orginally I made these screens for my own fair deparment of local fair about 10 years ago. Totally I made five screens which made about 35 feet of shaping wall. It`s made from heat treated birch.
Waves are really fascinating forms which moves all the time like these screens you can shape as you want..

Is it strung together with wire or string? Very creative.

Nice looking screens! Did you use a fabric backing cause I think wire would break after so many bends. Would have been nice to show in one picture both the front and back of the screen. This is a very good idea for separating sections of a room for privacy.

Thank´s for nice comments. There is four lines of holes in middle of every stick and inside there is rubber bands which I thighted really hard so both sides of screen looks the same. Every stick has been routed that other side is half round and other side half concave… hope you understand

A very clever and beautiful design. Like Jim, above, I, would like to make something similar if that’s ok and could use a couple more pics.

Very nice! I love the simplicity of the design and the many options it gives you to use the screens. Brilliantly done!
