Modernfold Celebrates 90 Years of Effective Space Utilisation


Founded in 1925, Modernfold, Inc. has been proud this year to observe its 90th anniversary as a premier manufacturer of space division products that meet the need for optimum space utilisation.

Style Partitions is honoured to be the exclusive UK partner to DORMA, which owns Modernfold, and many architects, specifiers and contractors will know them from when DORMA acquired both Modernfold and Huppe Forme to form the largest moveable walls manufacturer in the world. In fact it was Modernfold that pioneered the movable wall industry, and since then has continued to provide innovative solutions in acoustically rated operable partitions, accordion doors, and movable glass walls.

For nearly a century, Modernfold, Inc. has manufactured products as beautiful as they are useful, serving generations of developers, architects, interior designers, institutions and property owners.

“We have an incredible longstanding partnership with DORMA in the UK,’ said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director, “and the quality of their moveable walls is world class.

“This is underpinned by the heritage of companies such as Modernfold that are part of DORMA and lead the global marketplace in terms of operable wall innovation and technology. They also continue to change the way the architectural community and building owners view operable partitions by providing ultimate aesthetics and outstanding acoustical performance.

“On behalf of everyone at Style Partitions we raise a toast to their 90 years of success and all they have achieved within our industry.”
