As I previously mentioned, pattern is a great way to add interest to product surfaces. But as Li-Rong demonstrates, pattern can be used for more than just decoration.
IScreen is a laser-cut, modular unit screen of an interlocking shape derived from the letters L I S A. The pieces are cut from plywood and masonite and allow for multiple arrangements and custom sizes. Visit Li-Rong’s Ponoko Showroom for more.
