Free-standing modular wall system
The result of a collaboration between designer Greg Lynn and the principals at Panelite, Blob Wall is an attempt to redefine architecture’s most basic building unit—the brick. Blob Wall is a free-standing wall system comprised by a low-density, recyclable, impact-resistant polymer molded into colorful modular units using computer numerical control (CNC) technology.
Each brick, or “blob unit,” is a trilobed hollow shape that is mass produced through rotational molding. Using sophisticated software, individual blob units are intersected to form a freestanding wall, allowing for an endless number of prefabricated configurations and custom applications.
The Blob Wall debuted at Skin + Bones: Parallel Practices in Architecture and Fashion at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art in November 2006 and was also shown at Art Basel, Switzerland, in June 2007.
