Elizabeth Gomez — Privacy Screen for Kids

PROJECT STATEMENT:

“Kneel and Peek” is a privacy screen for kids that its intent is to create a playful environment. The child in once side of the screen could walk, kneel and lay down and peek to see what is at the other side of the screen. Creating a similar action like hide and seek. At the other side of the screen the joinery of the components create a grid. In this area kids can place their toys and used this is as a display area. Creating this display the kids will know what toys they have or what could they play with while peeking  through the privacy screen.

The wall is created by two set of components. One component creating a fold horizontally and the other creating a fold vertically. The variation consists on the extension of the components and the extension of the joint connector. The other variation consist on the number of components on the rows and columns of the wall. With different variation the wall could create the right about of privacy for the child that peeks through it.

Simona Perli – Privacy Screens for Kids: The Nest

PROJECT STATEMENT:

The Nest is a privacy screen that curves in order to give the child the feeling of a hug, or safety. The limited visibility from the child’s view gives them some visual continuity, but mostly privacy, while the parents can watch their child from the other side of the screen that allows for much more visibility and security.

The screen is composed of components that connection through notch and lap joints. The variations have to do with height, depth, extension, and division of the grid.
