Hêtre mouvant

Wood in our surrounding regulates our SNS (Sympathetic Nervous System), as well as the amount of humidity in the air. By enlarging a wooden plank, 'Hêtre mouvant', combines air and wood. Step by step, the modular system creates negative space, while providing room for additional components. Beech, a wood known for its sensibility to humidity, flexibility and lightness, gives the form a delicate structure, moving depending on the amount of humidity in the space. Looking to the paradigm of the wall, 'Hêtre-mouvant' reinterprets the wall’s archetype, while simultaneously delineating spaces. 'Hêtre mouvant' opens and divides, leaving voids to gaze in between. The quantity of humidity defines the movements of the wood.
