Gustav; the award-winning toolbox designed for life on the go
Making its U.K. debut this June, Gustav is the first ergonomic and portable toolbox of its kind, allowing users to carry their workspace with them wherever they go. Light, beautifully-crafted and with capacity to hold all the workplace essentials, the agile design is perfect for those that work from home as well as office environments with a flexi-working set-up.
The product is the brainchild of designer, architect and workplace strategist, Chris Pistauer, and brand and digital strategist, Judit Maireder, who run New Zealand based design studio Tuesday On The Beach. Launched in the Australasian markets in 2017, Gustav has already garnered a fantastic reputation, winning a Red Dot Award in 2018 for its design. The studio is now launching into new markets to build on its success, with an ecommerce platform that delivers globally.
Gustav is manufactured from moulded plywood oak veneer and felt with a fold-down, whiteboard front that invites personalisation. The simple and minimalist design features a business card holder, a phone, tablet and notebook stand, felt pockets for office stationery and compartments for a laptop and documents. Easy to pack up and transport, the toolbox measures 410x180x180mm and weighs only 1.3kg, making it a perfect space-saving alternative to lockers.
In addition, Gustav also doubles-up as a laptop stand (supporting 13 and 15 inch laptops) that enables an ergonomically correct posture, meaning that Gustav doesn’t just help move between spaces but allows a worker to easily adapt to any environment in which they are working.
Gustav is priced at £186 and is available to purchase online from https://www.obolife.com/gustav.
