The Polka 90 Hanging Panel highlights the small-scale circle. The play of addition + subtraction and positive + negative creates a simple, yet powerful pattern. The softness, thickness, and density of 100% Wool Design Felt allow these no-nonsense panels to be cut with intricate patterning and hang freely without fraying or additional support. This modern screening system provides varied degrees of privacy and enables flexible space division with visual and acoustic separation to boot.

Maintenance Vacuum occasionally to remove general air-borne debris. Should soiling occur, spot clean with mild soap and lukewarm water. Avoid aggressive rubbing as this can continue the felting process and change the surface appearance of the felt. Refer to 100% Wool Design Felt Maintenance + Cleaning for detailed care instructions.
Variation Wool felt is a natural material and color variation and inclusions of natural fiber on the surface are evidence of the 100% natural origin of the material. Product color is only indicative, as it is not possible to assure consistency of color in a natural product due to the natural color of raw wool and absorption of dyes. Color matching cannot be guaranteed between individual panels and expect color variation beyond the normal commercial range. In addition, variations in temperature and humidity can expand or contract the fibers affecting the size and shape of the felt. Please note that the material dimensions may change up to ±5% due to climate variation.

Ayse Birsel thinks differently. Simplicity, human-centeredness, and pragmatism are central to this Turkish-born designer’s methodology. Her process, termed Deconstruction:Reconstruction™, breaks down old paradigms, shifts points of view to a different perspective, and reconstructs by creating new values within existing constraints. Building on this process, her Design the Life You Love™ project examines the user’s experience at a much broader scope—life.
