Divider is a room divider annex shelving system designed by Studio Mieke Meijer. It is the first design in a new interior series based on lattice constructions.
Lattice constructions are extremely lightweight but stable structures which enable large spans with a minimal use of materials. Lattice girders can be found in, for example, bridges and buildings, but also in aircraft wings. A lattice construction is a framework composed of several parts that will be assembled in triangular shapes in order to form an undeformable unity.
Divider consists of thin oak slats connected by steel plates and rivets with an industrial character. The addition of glass shelves creates a storage function in which the transparent, light-weight nature of the design is maintained.
Divider deals with demarcating spaces using construction. It forms a semi-open or closed separation between users or functions as a shelving system. The functional, elegant and industrial character of it is typical of the work of Studio Mieke Meijer.
In essence Divider is more than a shelving system. It is a creative and flexible building system that offers infinite possibilities. Within the Divider system variations in height, length, depth, composition, form, color and material are possible. Beside this closed volumes can be created by adding panels and boxes. The system allows customized solutions.
Divider was first shown as part of the exhibition by collective Dutch Invertuals presented during Dutch Design Week 2012 in Eindhoven. The exhibition included new works by various designers from various disciplines around the theme of ‘Conflict’.
