Mobility and urbanity are two of the big issues of our century: Accelerated by the rapid development of mobile devices, we have to be mobile like never before. Nowadays we are able to work from virtually any location in the world; At the same time we migrate to the big cities, which causes narrowness and increasing costs in urban living. This development, in addition to the ever growing online business has a major impact on the market situation: Traditional voluminous furniture such as bookshelves or desks will disappear from the market and are replaced by new typologies adapted to our digital and nomadic life.
