This version of a modern room divider rests on the qualities of the original design, which is to divide a room into more rooms and create a private sphere in a larger room. STRINGS ATTACHED is based on two individual needs and changing from being introvert to being extrovert. The wall itself is built of yarn, which has been weaved around the frame with the colours changing from light to dark. The lighter part starts at the opening as an extrovert separation from the rest and changes to a darker part, where the space is deeper and seems more introvert.
I find it interesting to create the possibility to be introvert even in the company of others – designing a space, where you can be by yourself, but still communicate with the outside. By using yarn as the wall there is a physical separation, but sound will pass through easily, while light will come through the wall in a reformed pattern.
In a time where it is trending to tear down walls and praise the wideness and the open space, I strive to create a space, where the wall takes care of the single and individual immersion, but at the same time praises the community through communication.
Materials: Birch, pine and dyed yarn

REFORM is a platform where I am allowed to look at what exists and reform it according to my world. It gives me the opportunity to focus specifically on this process.
Actually I love the name itself, REFORM, and I like to refer to it when working with design. It is a very conscious process when you look at a piece of furniture and evaluate its function, design and your own urge to transform and reform it. I like the fact that I need to focus even more to figure out the challenges that will rise from this transformation and how I can create new functions, colour compositions and ideas about what this piece of furniture is able to do in time and space.
CILLEVENGBERG was established in 2012 by Cæcilie Parfelt Vengberg, who graduated in 2011 as a textile designer from The Royal Danish School of Fine Arts, School of Design. Vengberg works within the field of design and art, and she manages a variety of materials, always with a base in colour composition and a sketching process directly in the material.
Her palette is characterised by a strong Scandinavian expression, which results in a significant visual language within textile design, clothing, installation, costume, illustration and furniture design.
