rather than explicitly defining a prescribed function, the mobile pedestal ‘ed’ designed by daniel loch for L&Z is a structure that offers a diverse range of uses. folded out of a single piece of steel, the agile object can hold items such as notebooks, smartphones or tablets, be turned into a coffee table with extra storage space, or used as a spontaneous seat for visitors. the design provides a flexible solution for both the home and work environment. the proportions of ‘ed’ are based on standard formats common to the workplace. a versatile tool for modern life it is adaptable to different situations: home-offices, co-working spaces and residential homes. all of the components are manufactured in germany and have undergone extensive durability tests, ensuring that this product is also built to last.
