Room dividers are a great way to maximize space and privacy in small spaces, but in some cases, they can also add a decorative focal point, as well as a temporary storage solution. That’s the case with Ana Arana‘s geometric and playful Tromploeil, which is made of separate perforated, white metal planes that are joined by magnets with colorful geometrical elements. The result has a fun, kitschy 1990s vibe that surely brighten up any cookie-cutter apartment.
Ana Arana is a multidisciplinary designer based in Madrid; her work has a strong influence from graphic design and illustration. We previously featured her compact, all-in-one Gali Kitchen.
Tromploeil — which literally means “to deceive the eye” — allows the user to create and install their own design, which can also include small tables and shelves and can provide enough space for hanging small items of clothing. Plus, the piece can be easily taken apart when it’s time to move, ideal for nomadic New Yorkers.
