B*wall is a project involving the realms of architecture, mechanics, and up-cycling. It is a folding wall, activated by a mechanical system linked to a bike, created for the multipurpose events room of the Laboratori di Via Baltea 3, Turin – Italy
B*wall is realized with materials and objects that have come to the end of their life cycle, and were chosen for their soundproofing and acoustic absorption characteristics:
- 90 sqm of carpet left behind during the de-installation of the 2014 International Book Fair of Turin;
- 70 sqm of honeycomb cardboard used originally for the packaging of printing materials;
- bicycle components that were no longer being used.
