18 / Manerba / Apollo system / cork, steel, nanotech laminate
Apollo is a modular co-working desk system designed for a competitive market even with ‘made in Italy’ production. Our brief was to create a system that could be used a for large and small offices where typical budgets for ‘designer brands’ are axed.
Paramount in our process was to find a way to design an inexpensive modular leg that could be made using the local supply chains, flat pack and easy to assemble. Our solution resolves these issues with a simple folded sheet metal leg module that can be assembled in 3 minutes. An innovative cork screen acts as an acoustic panel as well a desk divider upon which a series of metal accessories can be hung.
