The unit forms part of Bene's PORTS line, which also contains a storage table and lounge chair designed for contemporary workplaces.

"The market for executive offices and furniture has not changed for over a century," said Pearson Lloyd co-founder Tom Lloyd.

"It is still defined in terms of hierarchy and old concepts of status, without considering the users' needs. PORTS offers a new way to define what a private workspace looks like and how it functions."

In response to this changing office landscape, PORTS Storage is designed to double up as a room divider or a cloakroom with shelves and can even house a mini-fridge, pinboards and whiteboards within its frame.

In addition to shelving, it acts as a frame for dividers or pinboards

"The private office is slowly disappearing," added co-founder Luke Pearson.

"And managers are becoming more open, collaborative, democratic – and younger. So they need as much time and space as possible to plan how they will fulfil their responsibilities and to think creatively."
