About the Designer
Michiel van der Kley
(1962 - )
It was when Michiel van der Kley (1962) became acquainted with the design of the nineteen-twenties (during his study of history) that he decided to become a designer himself. He has been working for manufacturers at home and abroad since 1987, including Artifort. Van der Kley produces designs with a great eye for detail, from which he believes that the object derives its individuality.
The Globus is a flexible, mobile all-in-one work station with a work table and a comfortable swivel chair. When closed, the work station is fascinating and intriguing. It conceals its function and excites curiosity. When open, it is inviting and multifunctional. Opening the globe blocks the wheels. One half of the globe contains a comfortable seat that swivels to make getting in or out very easy. The other half of the globe conceals a table that can be adjusted to the correct depth. The Globus is a beautiful, versatile, space-saving work station designed for public areas and office use. But it's also a perfect addition to the lobby of a hotel or the business lounge at an airport.
