File Pedestal: “UlM”
Design a pedestal file for the office environment that fits the needs of work styles in the office today.
The success of your pedestal will be determined by all the previous measures: aesthetic, elegance, craft and functionality.

HOW MIGHT WE...
provide a flexible and adaptable pedestal that accommodates a variety of different use-cases?
Ulm is simple, adaptable, and modular form designed to accommodate the many objects increasingly itinerant workers bring with them to and from the office: sports bags, umbrellas, backpacks, jackets, and supplemental electronic devices.
Context of use
Ulm ships flat and can be assembled on-site without the use of tools. Likewise, it can be easily disassembled and stored when not in use. Made entirely from natural, sustainable materials (wood and jute) the pedestal has a low-carbon footprint.
