Lustables: Spool

Build yourself a screen of upcycled Spool at home or office to create some privacy.

Founded in 2007 at the Rhode Island School of Design, Grain is “a collaborative of design thinkers with the shared vision of a more sustainable future.”

Their build-it-yourself modular system, called Spool, can be assembled into a variety of freestanding structures such as screens, table bases or partitions. Made from paper spools upcycled from the Los Angeles apparel industry and connectors of chipboard, Spool is sold in kits of 240 spools and 520 connectors, which can build a structure about 55 in H x 40 in W x 7 in D. Each spool has a random graphic pattern that indicates which type of fiber they once held.
