multifunctional furniture / stool / seating cube / side table / ...

Xbrick - a stool and so much more. A flexible companion wherever and however employed, as a stool for spontaneous sitting, for standing upon; in short, as discussed, the Xbrick can be used in multiple ways by the intuitive user. In the office world Xbrick becomes a playful element in everyday working life, a break in routine initiates a change of perspective; helps fuel new thoughts – Xbrick uses space differently; and encourages all participants to interact and communicate. Being itself Agile and highly mobile, Xbrick sees Agile theory put into practice in the office - for dynamic processes and flexible organisational forms. The all-rounder is extremely light, stable and resistant to water; it has multiple uses beyond the confines of the office. Being essentially weatherproof, Xbrick is fit for purpose, as a handy sports and recreational playmate. On top of that, there are practical additional features: the insertable backrest, on which the tired back nestles; there are connectors and straps, that bind multiple Xbricks together, as in one above the other, or side by side, to make a podium perhaps, or to logistically transport them in number; a sheet metal profile top, which instantly creates a firm, small table, on which only the drinks are missing; an alternative sheet metal profile, with raised side edges, is a handy receptacle for utensils, markers and such; and then, there is the perfectly fitted wooden board, which becomes a seat in combination with two Xbricks.

Xbrick is serially manufactured from pure expanded polypropylene (EPP), completely in Germany. Being odorless and free of harmful plasticizers, means Xbrick can safely be used in conjunction with food or as a toy. Xbrick owes its enormous pressure stability, with low weight, to its lightweight construction principle, its nearly hollow inner rib structure and two identical halves, which are clipped together and then glued together. Lastly: The final assembly is undertaken by employees of the Remstal Werkstätten, of Diakonie Stetten e. V., thus, closing the circle – in handcrafted tradition.

Concept

flomo – expand your work.
flomo – is remarkably employable just about anywhere thoughts flow, when ideas are born and need to be arrested; while being so mobile the system can be taken practically anywhere. And flomo can do even more: conceived as a universal and highly adaptable system, it makes it possible to intuitively adapt and structure space - serving as an acoustic measure where desired. flomo is both a tool and work environment at the same time. flomo is unbeatable concerning methods and approaches; such as, Design Thinking, Agile Working, or Scrum.
Taking centre stage – the flomo board, where everything is aligned to focus on Agile work: whiteboard, writing board, notebook, sketchbook, pin board and post-it, in one. With its functional accessories, flomo goes far beyond the individual workstation, turning walls into centers of knowledge. flomo is mobile and adaptive, and affords an ability to convert entire spaces – to serve multidisciplinary, self-organizing teams of varying composition and size.
The idea for flomo emerged from the cooperation between SCOPE Architekten, WESTERMANN and the Stuttgart design and development office wd3.
