Schneiderman divides interior prefabs into three classifications; Screens, used as partitions in China as far back as 400 BC, and in Japan, where sliding screens operated as "walls, doors, window coverings and standing partitions." While teaching at the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts,, Schneiderman and her students developed the S3 Sustainable Slotted System, a screen wall that one can build out of cereal boxes. You can build your own with templates from S3 Sustainable Slotted Systems; keep it away from smokers and candles.
