Torggler’s Innovative Kinetic Room Screen

Last week we posted about Austrian Artist Klemens Torggler clever ‘Evolution Door,’ a rotating geometric flip-panel door system that opens up with momentum and looks like origami. Torggler spent a lot of times experimenting with the mechanism and, in the process,came up with 5 variations. One of the most compelling: an innovative take on the room screen: A moving object that revolves around its own vertical axis, the screen can be turned and opened with one movement of the hand. 

It is a kinetic sculpture of a screen with many possibilities,


…There’s quite a bit of info on Torrgler’s site about how the mechanisms work (though we imagine it would take a good amount of trial-error to replicate).


Being lover’s of MUTABLE spaces, we’re going to file this idea away for possible use down the line.
