molo premieres the aluminum textile soft collection at the New York ICFF 2019. Micro-coated with the actual metal, aluminum textile softwall + softblock, benchwall and softseating introduces new mercurial materiality to the award-winning molo soft collection in its 16th year at the show.

Designed by Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen, molo’s soft collection is a modular system of space partitions, lighting, table and seating elements that uses honeycomb geometry to flex, expand and compress. Made from recyclable paper or non-woven textile materials, in a multi-patented system with magnetic end panels for flexible, modular arrangement, the collection empowers individuals to redesign and shape their surroundings with spontaneous ease.

The optical properties of the new aluminum textile finish create a lively range of reflected light and shadow across the pleated surfaces of the structures. At an intimate, tactile scale, the thin coating of aluminum highlights the intricate pattern of textile fibers. Aluminum textile soft collection by molo

Visitors to molo’s installation in New York will explore winding corridors that reveal acoustic spaces in which to meet, rest and study the effects of light. The morphing, flower-like forms of urchin table + floor light create morphing shadow effects. Aluminum textile soft collection by molo

On the perimeter, high-backed bench walls arrange flexible gathering space, curving in for intimate discussion, or reaching out into expansive lounge seating. The seating takes on a comfortable springiness over time as the top surface of textile crushes and softens with use, developing a patina of soft shining facets.

Flexible in length, fluid in form, made of 99% air when expanded and able to pack flat for storage or transport, the structures may be reimagined endlessly for use in creative workplace, retail, residential, exhibition and event design.Aluminum textile soft collection by molo
