. This Kaleidoscope Screen is by Toronto designer Scott Barker. It is made from repurposed Ikea product – wooden baby cribs, wall mirrors and curtains, among other things.
The screen was designed for Toronto’s Design Exchange annual fundraiser. It will be part of an Ikea-sponsored auction this Friday, November 16th. http://www.dx.org/
Beech wood has been cut and reassembled with fine joinery and details to create a bespoke object. The screen is backed with curtain fabric and the flexible hinges are cut from a desk writing pad and the fine rope detail is unraveled from a woven closet organizer.
At this time, it has not been published anywhere else. Would you be interested in publishing it?

SCOTT BARKER BIO
Scott’s ability to synthesize complex spatial requirements with technological innovation has been a hallmark of his work for over 15 years. His ability to design and execute works of architecture is equally matched by the skill and craftsmanship he brings to his hand-made objects.
Scott has worked in Asia, the UK, and across Canada on ground breaking and innovative works of art, architecture and design.
Scott recently left his position as Director of Design at Paul Raff Studio after seven years. Notable award-winning projects during that time include the Cascade House in Toronto, the Bluepoint Residences and Bluepoint Pavilion in Thailand. Scott also managed the Studio’s public art installations.
Previously, Scott spent four years in London, working for two of the UK’s most celebrated young architecture and design firms, Block Architecture and Alison Brooks Architects. At Block, Scott was the project architect for renovations to the Museum of Modern Art in Oxford. At Alison Brooks, he worked on the Salt House, which won the Manser Medal; he was project designer on the Wrap House, which won the Stephen Lawrence Prize; and was a project manager for Acordia, which won the Stirling Prize. The firm was the first to win all three prestigious awards.
Scott is now working independently as Scott Barker Design Workshop and in collaboration with others on bold and innovative works of art, architecture and design.
