    Storey concept with bonus.

    The arrangement of up to five archive trays allows you to prioritize your documents in hierarchical order from "top" (matters with fixed deadlines) to "bottom" (has to be done at some stage). The single horizontally or vertically mountable archive trays can be detached easily, in case you wish to work through the content elsewhere. Furthermore, these trays can be turned through 360°. Above all, they do not take up any space on the desk - instead they hover above or even beside the desk, so the desk surface remains free.

    Hovering process: deskwork with space benefits.

    If the space on your desk is occupied by your monitor, keyboard, analog writing instruments as well as magazines, files, tax documents und the up-to-date work order, space is particularly tight. The only scope which remains is expansion into the third dimension. Best is if you can organize upwards and hovering. We did not invent this kind of filing system, but discovered it in an old foxing catalogue for office furniture and found it so obvious that we started to work on it right away. What do we need today to realize something similar? We need filing trays like our ivory trays, a stand with table clamp (coming from laboratory equipment) and a metalware manufacturer who can produce perfectly fitting holders for our filing trays.

    Thinking dynamically, stacking high

    Working at the desk is not static, thinking certainly is not. Good organization can be conducive to such dynamism, and what better way to do that than with an equally dynamic filing system?
    We didn't invent this kind of filing system. We discovered it in an old, fox-stained catalog for office furniture and immediately found it to be plausible. What do you need if you want to implement something similar today? You need storage boxes like our ivory boxes, a tripod with table clamp (supplies the laboratory supplies) and a metalware manufacturer who can make custom-fit brackets for our storage boxes.

    Tier concept with addition

    The arrangement of up to five archive boxes allows a hierarchical prioritization of different levels of urgency from "top" (deadline things) to "bottom" (must also be done sometimes). The individual archive boxes, which can be hooked in lengthwise or crosswise, can also be removed with a simple movement of the hand to be processed elsewhere. In addition, they can be rotated through 360°. Most importantly, they do not take up space floating on, but above or even next to the desk, the desk surface itself remains free.

    The structure: variable

    The filing system consists of five components (supplied without content):

    • base consisting of a table clamp, a stand rod and three height-adjustable holders.

    • Document trays that are hung in these holders.

    • Utensil tray for writing utensils, ruler, eraser, sharpener, paper clips and the like.

    • Optional inclinable and thanks to laboratory sleeve height adjustable concept holder made of sheet steel.

    • If two additional shelf holders are mounted instead of the concept holder, the shelf becomes five-tiered.
