COMPACT WORKING – THE GLOBE CONCEPT
You have never seen or experienced anything like it. The world’s first all-inclusive laptop workstation is born, together with a family of ergonomic, stunning office chairs. Invented by one of Scandinavia’s most famous designers – Peter Opsvik – the Globe Concept has been created for the modern, mobile and active workplace.
New technology has enabled us to be freer and less dependent on traditional office workplaces. Distance working is more and more common. Our meetings are increasingly virtual. Fixed workstations are replaced by hot-desking, and large, expensive conference rooms are replaced by small, technology-packed cubbyholes.
New times also require a new way of thinking with regard to office furniture.
By combining Globe TWO’s higher and active seating position with a rollable, height-adjustable desk – both movement and creativity will be stimulated.
Thanks to its compact shape, balance weight and gas-lift, this worktable requires minimal space and no electrical cords.
The prototype, developed in cooperation with Form2 Office, was shown for the first time at Orgatec 2016.
IDEA AND DESIGN:
The Globe Concept is developed by the Norwegian designer Peter Opsvik, renowned for the classic high chair Tripp Trapp, the office chair Capisco and the revolutionary Balans concept.
Together with its cooperative partner Moment AB, the Opsvik company has developed an entirely new concept for the modern and flexible workplace. The Globe Concept was created to inspire curiosity and make sitting active – in both public spaces and offices.
”Conventional workplaces will be challenged by compact units that better suits our new, more flexible and IT-driven way of working”.
