A perimeter to define space. Paravan is sculptural in form and architectural in execution, capable of articulating existing environments while creating new ones. Like parentheses that enclose a conversation, Paravan creates intimacy within common spaces, thanks to sound-absorbing panels that encourage both individual concentration and collaboration. The effective modularity of Paravan can be enriched by the Paravan Mood set of accessories, which adds further possibilities of use and personalisation of the space to the collection’s elegant shapes.

Ideal for lounges, waiting rooms and common areas, the elegance of the Paravan collection allows the space to be delineated, giving it identity, privacy and colour. With an effective modular language, the sound absorbing panels available in various sizes and heights allow the creation of linear, angular, circular and curved compositions, which can be completed with container elements to adapt to any context. Free-standing versions are complemented by table top panels in three different lengths, adding functionality to common workspaces. The panels of the Paravan collection are available in a wide range of fabrics to facilitate their combination with all Arper collections, ensuring expressive consistency even in the most articulated spaces. Paravan Mood accessories help to personalise the compositions even more with options such as a blackboard, hook, mirror, magazine rack, shelves and table organisers.
