Designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, Parentesit is an acoustic wall module that reduces extraneous background noise and creates a space for concentration, offering comfort for contemporary shared spaces.
The bold, graphic forms are available in three shapes - a circle, a square or an oval - that can be further customized with the addition of a speaker or ambient light.

Arper has extended the functionality of Parentesit to include freestanding models for increased privacy and comfort. Architectural in scale, these modules carve out a three-dimensional space for concentration or quiet conversation in shared workspaces or collaborative environments. Modular by design, each screen can be combined to realise new spatial compositions that reinforce or distinguish it from its architectural environment.

Parentesit Freestanding is able to stand alone thanks to its matte black metal frame. Modules are available in four options: two round panels of different sizes, one square panel, and one combination square and round panel. All panels are available in Arper's full range of fabric options further engaging the expression of the end user.

In designing Parentesit its creators took inspiration from both minimalist art and classic Japanese interiors.

The signature and elemental shapes of Parentesit complement Arper's clean, minimal language creating a visual element that combines function and aesthetics.
