E-Scape, Personal Organic Work Spaces

Michael Jantzen
© 2012

The E-Scape system consists of a series of light weight, modular, prefabricated components that can be assembled into many different configurations, for use as personal work spaces. The components are made from sustainably grown wood products, and eco-friendly fabrics. Curved wood support frame sections are prefabricated into several different lengths and shapes. These support frames are bolted together into many different shapes and sizes depending on the site specific requirements for a specific work space. Rolls of different colored, textured, and/or patterned fabrics (that are sewn together into long strips) are attached to each end of the support frame sections. These rolls of fabric can be automatically and/or manually woven through the support frames in order to change the color, texture, pattern, and/or opacity of the entire structure. The rolls of fabric can easily be changed and up-graded at any time, and the entire structure can be re-assembled at any time into a different size, and/or shape. As a result, one set of building components can be recycled over and over again into many different spaces for many different people, and remain out of a landfill for a long time.
