Modules of the system are stick to each other with magnets, almost seamlessly
Softblocks and softwalls used with LED lights produce very intimate and cozy look & feel, appreciated for its poetic and pragmatic beauty and innovation, these solutions were acquired by several museums, including the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
