ON A ROLL

Bordbar continues to transform authentic airplane trolleys into design objects, with new editions always in the works. They can be customized inside and out. Inside, shelves and drawers can
be added and arranged to suit any purpose.   bordbar.de

HAVE DESK,  WILL TRAVEL

Nomado by Martin Baldness for Mobica+ is a mobile, stackable desk system with integrated electric outlets and task lighting, which can also be used as an ad-hoc wall separator offering flexibility and economy of space.   mobicaplus.de

GREEN WITH ENVY

For venerable Vitra, G-Star Raw developed Prouvé Raw Office Edition. The Dutch fashion label took designs created by Jean Prouvé nearly 70 years ago – for the interiors of several French corporations and universities – and gave them a modern edge in industrial green.    vitra.com

CONE OF SILENCE

Oblivion – by Koray Malhan for Koleksiyon – is a customizable room divider that takes the form of a fabric cone, with a vertical aluminum structure. The user takes part in the design process, choosing footprint dimensions, height, interior and surfaces; and then equipping the volume with shelves, desks, cabinets, seats and more.     koleksiyon.com.tr/en

PAINT IT BLACK

For Kokuyo, Japanese studio Nendo spliced together traditional office furniture pieces to create strikingly simple desks and storage units, in matte black iron. Nendo broke the office down to its smallest components, then put everything back together. Set inside a pristine white booth, the black compositions floated majestically.   nendo.jp    kokuyo.com

TOGETHER & APART

Keypiece Communication Desk, designed by EOOS for Walter Knoll, has the flexibility to work both as a personal workplace and a meeting-room table. It comes in both Classic and Executive, both with a modern storage space to work as a complete office. The shape supports up to five people and the video position is specially designed for video conferences.   walterknoll.de

GOOD ON PAPER

Go, Molo! The Canadian company’s Benchwall modular system, by Stephanie Forsythe + Todd MacAllen, enjoyed a prominent position in Orgatec’s promenade – always a busy place during the fair. With its simple maneuverability and multiple configurations, the paper furniture has become  a show of its own, and the resulting spaces are being used continuously.    molodesign.com

CASE STUDY

Architect Jean Nouvel sees the office as a place where “freedom flourishes.” For Unifor, he has created the Cases range, which allows the user to “build the space” with a number of interlocking components conceptualized like parts of a construction.
Cases consists of an articulated family of containers and worktops that can be freely combined.

WORK IN PROGRESS

Konstantin Grcic’s Hack table system for Vitra anticipates the requirements of companies and employees – a provocative, proactive solution that could be understood as a “hack” of the office environment. With its raw wooden panels, Hack presents an unfinished aesthetic suitable to today’s high-tech companies. It is foldable and movable on wheels.    vitra.com
