FLATMATE

FOUNTAIN PEN MEETS TABLET PC

When closed, FLATMATE has a floor area of just 0.09 m²,
therefore making it probably the smallest fully equipped
bureau on the market.
Due to its slim depth and sleek, unobtrusive exterior it
transforms long hallways into home offices, offers an
intimate place for writing letters in the bedroom or serves
as a temporary workplace in a weekend home as required.
FLATMATE makes practical use of such remaining spaces,
which are unsuitable for conventional furniture; due to its
compact dimensions this reinterpretation of the bureau is
ideal for mobile living users.
An integrated flexible interior with storage space for traditional
writing utensils and tablet-pc and Co. combines the features
of a classic type of furniture with the new forms of networked
living and working. Complemented by a Bluetooth keyboard
(not included) it turns the mobile tablet PC into a stationary
ergonomic workspace with integrated power supply; mobile
phones can be charged inconspicuously when the work
surface is closed.
The glare-free lighting and concealed plug hole are put into
operation with the elegant 1,80 meter long black textile
cable: plug ‚n‘ work
Behind the side flaps there is space for two 8cm wide
standard-sized files, a 17“ laptop including accessories and
CDs or similar; if required one of the flaps
