Arper extends the functionality of Parentesit to include freestanding models for increased
privacy and comfort. Architectural in scale, these modules carve out a three-dimensional
space for concentration or quiet conversation in shared workspaces or collaborative
Designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, Parentesit was created with a dual inspiration of
minimalist art and classic Japanese interiors. To shift this approach to an architectural scale,
Parentesit Freestanding has become a screen, capable of dividing a room in half, or
partitioning off a space for quiet, independent thought. Modular by design, each screen can
be combined to realize new spatial compositions that reinforce or distinguish it from its
architectural environment.
Parentesit Freestanding is able to stand alone thanks to its matte black metal frame. Modules
are available in four options: two round panels of different sizes, one square panel, and one
combination square and round panel. All panels are available in Arper’s full range of fabric
options further engaging the expression of the end user.
