Topic tags/keywords: project design wall folding decorative casters divider question modern

Wondering if this is possible to do, and if so what even goes into it. Google was no help, unfortunately, unless I was searching for the wrong things. Finished dimensions would probably be around 10×10.

Foldability is not strictly necessary, I’m just brainstorming ideas to make the piece more storable if not in use. It’s for a small open-plan office that wants a nice-looking temporary divider to separate part of the entry-way from an employee desk area. It’s not planned to be fixed in anyway, and I anticipate that the clients might want to move or store it at some point in the future. Initial thoughts were to make it folding or have casters, but I’m open to any other ideas…

Something 10’ high will require some real width
in the base unless it’s attached to the ceiling.

DiResta did a screen with 1/4” plywood and a ton of butterflies cut out with his CNC machine. Maybe a good excuse to buy another tool, or just go with a template.
