The Lightness of Being
The combination of a unique binding system and precisely finished elements results in elegant, custom-built furniture which is extremely practical for office or living spaces. It can be extended or added to - without any screws and tools.
Specially made cable loops are placed around the three sides of a module and made taut through the tension created by pushing out the fourth side, thus fixing the four corners in place. This, together with the rear side, forms a stable module.
Unlike furniture which is assembled using screws, the individual modules are connected to each other with balls. At clearly defined points and a distance of 25cm, precisely cut cavities are added. These hold the chromed steel balls and ensure the stability of the furniture. In addition to the structural flexibility, which requires no screws or tools, this binding system ensures the highest quality but reduced material density, making it lighter and more visually refined. The flexibility in conjunction with the available options enables you to create personalized pieces.
The standardized chromed steel balls are placed between the precisely milled cavities of the two elements to create an immovable, stable binding. The weight loading is derived from the radial balls and increases stability.
The core of the cable loop is a durable fiber which does not extend under tension. It is covered by a second protective fiber, which is very resistant to abrasion.
Birch wood is available in abundance and is a very fast growing tree species. The white and black film coating applied is more resistant than conventional and organic coatings.
The Xilobis furniture system is produced entirely in Switzerland using the most cutting edge machinery. The processed laminated birch wood is stronger than a solid wood panel and can thus be more precisely processed.
