Not another transforming furniture—that is probably your initial reaction upon learning about the ASYTRON. Even the name is very Transformers, but you will probably love its mechanism like most furniture pieces with similar inspiration.
The Asytron is a lightweight transforming furniture item designed by two industrial designers from Germany. This mobile workspace is made using a light construction method. The design aims to solve several issues digital nomads face and those that spend most of their long hours in the home office or a coworking space.
Designers: Felix Marx and Sebastian Meyr
There are a lot of related products and concepts, so shopping for the proper workstation can be a challenge. A mobile workspace shouldn’t just be portable as it should really work for the user. It should be sturdy enough for frequent relocation and with frequent assembly and disassembly.
With more people having flexible work environments, it is only right for a personal space to be available. That can be achieved easily with the numerous solutions we have seen. However, many different scenarios must be covered, including frequent change of location, temporary team spaces, flexible office/classroom, easy to transport, modularly expandable, functional, and space-saving when not in use.
The Asytron answers all those concerns as it is dynamic, flexible, ergonomic, and even aesthetically pleasing. It’s a desk and chair in one but can be folded together to save precious space. It’s ideal for flexible offices and coworking spaces as you can easily assemble, pack, and transport the item.
Asytron is truly lightweight, thanks to the materials used: aluminum tubes and extruded aluminum profiles. As described by the designers, the Asytron comes with a cushioning formation inspired by those automotive racing seats. It is ergonomic, lightweight, and rigid. It’s modular so you can combine the pieces. It’s ergonomic too with the lumbar support and a notch for the spine. There is also a hinge that easily swings and folds.
Every piece can fit a trunk when folded. Integrated features include a USB cable reel, USB multi-hub,
and inductive charging station for wireless charging. With this thing, you can work wherever you want. You don’t just bring your laptop with you as you can also now bring your table and chair. It’s something needed these days since the pandemic isn’t over, and many people are encouraged to work from home, which means work from anywhere.
