Forming part of Knoll’s innovative and highly contemporary Matic line, the Open Storage Unit is a beautifully realised piece of simple, highly functional furniture.
Naturally low-lying, the Matic features a movable tray that allows for the unit to be used as a coffee table, while the base of the unit itself provides ample storage for all manner of goods. Finished with painted steel panels, the internal elements of the piece are made from natural oak, with the resulting aesthetic one which combines the classical with the cutting edge.
