In late 2014 Opendesk and Kano began an exciting conversation. The topic – let make Kano’s office awesome with open furniture. The results can be seen in the Opendesk case study. Also featured in Dezeen and Wired.
One particular item of furniture attracted a lot of attention. I designed the Kano Demo Unit to make storage look beautiful, creating organised mess through a modular pegboard system. Kano’s use of the unit is a fantastic example of this, the computer kit’s components adding pops of colour and vibrancy.
The Kano Demo Unit plays on the design principle of modularity. Users can organise storage pots in any configuration they like, allowing them to manage components whilst creating new display compositions. Because the modular pegboard system continues across other items of furniture in Kano’s space, so too can the experience of organising and configuring the Kano kit components.
