Mono is a single person workstation designed for moments of reflection or somewhere you can stop for short period of time, put down your bag and get to the task at hand. Valuables are stored next to you for security and at a practical height, ensuring necessary items are always within reach. Compact and flexible, Mono facilitates different seating positions and is suitable for public places, waiting areas and interstices.

Mono has been developed with sustainability in mind. All four components (foam, steel, fabric and wood) can be separated, replaced and recycled. The use of velco allows for upholstery to be easily removed for cleaning (depending on the fabric) or replacement. In the event of damage, all parts can be removed and retro-fitted separately, making it easy for components to be repaired or replaced.


Table Top: Constructed from solid Oak timber, stained natural or selected house colour
Upholstery: Fire retardant foam, fully upholstered in house fabric/leather or COM/COL
Column: Steel, powdercoated to selected house colour
Glides: Plastic glides
