ciclo is a system for creating space divisions for
different purposes in a single room.
The basic idea is to create closed or open individual or collective spaces.The
elements can be composed in countless ways,and because they are so easy
to assemble,the environments can be changed or moved in just a few minutes.
All of the components are light-weight and children themselves can modify
the spaces they wish to create. The elements are flat panels:with 1 cubic
meter of unassembled components,you can
create 70 square meters of furnished space.
The panels and columns are mounted using joints and the openings in the
panels serve to support bamboo or wooden poles,screens or curtains.
Ciclo is made up of plywood column panels,fabric screen or curtain elements,overhead
coverings. The accessories are:horizontal surfaces,which can be a desk/table,bench/seat
or bed (with a futon),wood or bamboo poles,hanging shelves,hooks,screens.The
possibiities for composing the different elements and materials allows
you to create virtually any type of space.For example,in a school setting,
you can set up an area for hanging up coats and leaving shoes,an area
for sleeping, for drawing, for talking and listening to stories,for putting
on plays... by inventing individual and collective spaces,mixing materials,components,shapes,lights
