If more separation is desired, there are options to add screens to the existing blocks.
Seeing your work in progress or after it is complete, can serve as great motivation. The design of the modular blocks allows individuals and groups to stack examples of their work in their surroundings. The walls then function as inspiration to those using that space.

An important element in any product is the environmental aspect. Metaform Portfolio is made from 100% recyclable material – EPP (expanded polypropylene). The designers at Studio 7.5 took the qualities of EPP to the next level and created Metaform Portfolio – featuring a lightweight form and sustainable design. A common material is used in a new and inventive way.
