55 North bar with sliding lattice screens by Luchetti Krelle

For our latest lookbook, we have selected eight interiors that use lattice screens to conceal and divide spaces without blocking sightlines.

Lattice screens can come in a variety of materials and provide a versatile alternative to solid walls and room dividers, offering a way to create privacy between two spaces while still maintaining a connection between them.

From concealing bathrooms to establishing connections between interior and exterior spaces, this lookbook presents eight different ways in which lattice screens have been used in residential, hotel and restaurant interiors.

This is the latest in our lookbooks series, which provides visual inspiration from Dezeen’s archive. For more inspiration see previous lookbooks featuring period home renovations, open-plan interiors characterised by bold dining tables and interiors with reclaimed materials.
