With roots in Silicon Valley, servicing clients like Amazon and Google while collaborating with design firms such as Gensler and Perkins and Will, Mòz Designs has mastered the art of unique design solutions. Over the last 30 years, the metal manufacturer has become an industry leader in creating innovative columns, wall panels, and room dividers using the latest technologies to create dynamic perforated and laser cut patterns. Now Mòz Designs‘ offers designers a new variety of options with its recently introduced line of acrylic barriers that feature the brand’s signature craft techniques and artistic inspirations in a new medium.
“We thought a lot about how our hospitality clients are going to redraw floor plans,” explains Linda Gutierrez, director of marketing at Mòz Designs, noting that COVID-19 made the need for transparent dividers even more apparent. In order to safely designate different spaces while facilitating communication, the design team sought to combine protection with beauty. Now, 11 out of 16 new designs released in Mòz Designs’ Divider Collection are original conceptions for the acrylic medium. The clear material allows for playful and colorful designs to standout while maintaining visibility throughout the space.
Staying true to its artistic roots in style and form, Mòz Designs integrated the lifeworks and patterns of their metal dividers, created using engraving and laser cut technologies, onto their new acrylic products. Highly customizable, Gutierrez explains that “we can dial into specific color tones,” for clients who want to see exact brand colors or inspiration shades reflected in the design. Effects can also be layered, such as adding a color gradient to a textural design and backlighting, while specific graphics like logos and images also can be imprinted or digitally projected onto the acrylic screens.
To ensure dividers fit seamlessly into a given space, Mòz Designs offers dividers mounted by posts, cable, or in a frame—each suitable for a light-touch application, creating a room-dividing statement. With minimal hardware and optimal cleanability, each meticulously crafted acrylic barrier by Mòz Designs enables designers to create and facilitate safe yet collaborative spaces.
