INSPIRATION

During the late 1990’s Jeremy travelled and worked in central Europe, and his inspirations for this project came from a combination of professional experiences (designing consumer electronics for Grundig) and visual references from the towns and cities he stayed in.
However, the concept was not fully realized until 2011, when the first Mbox design was debuted at the Lisbon Design Show and selected for the ideal home exhibition.

 

Mbox is designed with an architectural feel; with solid geometric volumes floating on light structures, resulting in a technical looking furniture for a modern life-style. Excellent for professional or domestic use in homes, offices and hotels.
