NIVOO – a table with many sizes
Nivoo is a sustainable desk for creative minds between 3 and 99 years old. With 3 heights and many possibilities it offers for everyone an adequate stage. It is made of ash wood and coloured MDF, assembled completely metal-free, and stiffened with cords and wooden screws. All parts of the plug-in system of the legs serve different functions: Wooden dowels turn into suspensions for schoolbags, the holes become fixation joints for shelves, foot hammocks or the canopy. The desk can be even transformed into a „Kasperltheater” (theatre for kids); there is a (secret) compartment for cables with an integrated bookend.
