movo Model THE PERFORMER – Reminiscent of a “Swiss Army Knife”
movo model THE PERFORMER, nominated for the prestigious DesignEuropa award, is the most compact model in the entire collection, with a height of only 81 cm. But regardless of that fact, it fully meets all the basic conditions for work. Its concept is reminiscent of a “Swiss army knife”, where each of its surfaces can be unfolded into a specific function – such as a work surface, a drawer, a cabinet for binders, a compartment for pens, and a compartment for housing electrical connections.
Its basic structure consists of a metal frame inside which various storage units are organized. The outside is covered with white chipboard, which softens the angular shape of the element with its rounded corners and makes it more pleasant to handle. The entire element has a very modern and discreet design, and the wooden decor inside the element gives it additional character.
