PAIS: Adaptable Privacy Screens for the Desk

Hungary-born, Austria-based industrial designer Brigitta Nemeth designed a privacy screen concept that not only looks pretty cool, it adapts to your needs as they change. Most screens are fixed or they’re big and awkward making it difficult to move around, but PAIS lets you set your own boundaries when you need them.

PAIS privacy screens are flexible letting them be rotated around your work surface thanks to a magnets. Besides increasing privacy, the screens act as acoustic panels to absorb any sound you make as well as the sounds around you helping to dial down the noise.

The irregular shapes add more visual interest as do the fun colors.

The embedded magnets let you attach it to any table with a metal edge.

The cushioned nature of the screens allows for also using it as a pin board for important notes.

PAIS was designed as a diploma project for blaha office.
