Design

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.
