Flip charts are still considered an important office accessory, mainly used during meetings and brainstorming sessions. However uniform their contents are, designs for furnishings that accommodate flip charts can be quite diverse,
For example, Christian Halleröd’s ‘M3 Mobile glass’ for Lintex is a castor-mounted, tall, narrow, glass white board, which can also be used as a room divider, and can additionally be ordered with hooks so that it can support a flip chart. Cascando’s ‘Round 20 Whiteboard’, designed by Smool Designstudio, is an angular, castor-mounted white board, which can also be fitted with a flip chart.
Antonio Citterio’s ‘Mobile Elements’ flip chart holder offers a simple, leaning surface for the paper, held up by elegant, tubular metal base, again mounted on castors, allowing easy movement from one meeting room to another. Ueli Biesenkamp’s ‘Uniflipchart’ for Atelier Alinea is designed in the same spirit, but in a much more sober, austere, angular fashion, and without the castors.
Ayse Birsel’s and Bibi Seck’s ‘Teneo’ flip chart for Herman Miller Europe mirrors the two leaning surfaces, and inserts a small storage cabinet at their base, adding an extra function to this product, which forms part of an entire, comprehensive range of office storage solutions.
Lastly, Mia Wahlstein’s and Josef Zetterman’s ‘Enjoy’ for Abstracta is a wall-mounted, glass white board, which opens up to reveal a hidden flip chart within.
