The 10-feet tall white softwalls are integrated with molo’s softseating structures and cloud softlight, creating meeting rooms and semi-enclosed spaces with flexible seating arrangements. The seating has a flexible 6-foot-tall backrest made from a high quality blend of 50 percent post-consumer recycled paper fibers and 50 percent new long fibers. The paper structure acts as an acoustic buffer and is strong enough to provide secure back support for visitors.

An iteration of the wall called thinwall shows the multifunctionality of the design-the paper structure can also be used as a flexible door. By magnetically connecting two thinwalls, the designers created a hidden closet space that can be easily opened via natural felt handles attached to the walls. The cloud softlights, which are buoyant honeycomb cloud shades above the installation, illuminate the structure and feature energy efficient LEDs.
