HOUNDSTOOTH SCREEN

Spring 2006
76" h x 18.5" w x 5/8" d each panel
Plywood, brass

This screen is inspired by the classic black-and-white houndstooth check, which has its origin in Scottish and British tweeds. Here the pattern is blown up in scale and translated as positive and negative space. The hugely blown-up scale of the pattern morphs dressmaker details into computer-age iconography — it looks like an 80s-era video game. The panels pivot freely on brass pins in inset sockets.

Prototype, not for sale. If you are a manufacturer interested in producing this screen, please contact me.
