We ran across XTable, e design envisioned by studio KiBiSi for furniture brand Holmris, which contributes to the working and standing trend. Based on the idea that a modern day of the office could be less unhealthy if the employees get up once in a while, this type of table could just be the next wave. We appreciate its elegance and simple maneuvering system and thought of sharing it further with you guys. Moreover, the project has a highly modern appearance, making it easy to integrate in various contemporary cribs. According to the designer’s official description, “XTable is a manually height adjustable desk. A piece of office machinery that accommodates multiple working positions and daily reshuffling“.
“XTable uses manual kinetic power instead of electricity for height adjustments – saves energy and keeps users active. All technical features are constructively integrated in the table top. It uses a century old principle known from carjacks, ironing boards and other iconic tools. The principle coupled with a desk is a radical redesign of the traditional office desk. XTable is designed with an optional storage solution for office supplies and other belongings“. Do you consider this table to be a good alternative to the common desk design? What effects do you believe the new working&standing trend will have in the world of design?
Handmade, elegant and solid, the Dixon Modular Storage Unit from Dare Studio is a beautiful example of well-made British design. Designed by Patrick Frey for Richard Lampert, the sleek, modest and rather demure Stak Trolley system is suited to home and office environments. German-Based Richard Lampert follows the motto: ‘as little as possible, as much as necessary’.
An antique armoire can bring a sense of timeless elegance to any home, but not everyone can find a proper use for one — not to mention sufficient space too! In the old days they were used to store clothing and linens back when bedrooms didn’t have closets, and today some people use them to hold their televisions — but that trend perhaps isn’t as big of a deal as it once was now that TV screens are so flat and compact. You just need to have a look around at all your stuff and see what needs a storage area of its own! Here are some great ideas that might pique your interest.
