hok International has teamed up with Italian furniture manufacturer Faram to produce Toolbox, a furniture system which provides demountable informal meeting facilities, ideal for buildings with large open floorplates. Toolbox is made up of three component units. Meeting Pod comes with an optional fold-down table, and rotating plasma screen. Internally, the finish is a giant whiteboard screen. Pickup Point includes pigeonholes, a touchdown desk, magnetic notice boards, coat storage and cold-drink storage. Copy Centre is an informal meeting space centred on the photocopy area, and includes white boards, notice boards and a fold-down bench, along with a 2m-high recycling drum which forms the central pivot to a rotating table. Toolbox will be launched to the European Industry for the first time at Orgatec in Cologne next year. Contact Faram on 0171 916 6166.
