A while ago, our dutch colleagues wrote an article about a small Dutch designbrand ‘TOOtheZOO’ quietly conquering Europe with their beautiful products. Since last week it’s not ‘quiet’ anymore because the company is chosen as a main supplier of furniture for the coming G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany.
The G20 agenda includes the serious global issues such as climate, trade, employment, migration, refugee flows and the war on terrorism. But in addition to long meetings and tough discussions about difficult political issues, Jules Vreeswijk, owner of TOOtheZOO says that “world leaders also want to relax after a long meeting, make private calls, read documents or meet each other in a more informal way.”
TOOtheLOUNGE is non-standard furniture
Vreeswijk continues “We offer with TOOtheLOUNGE a remarkable answer to the often beautiful, but standard, furniture we saw at previous G20 Summits”
“The possible combinations of TOOtheLOUNGE form a perfect mix between soft seating and a comfortable workplace. With an electrically height adjustable desk, integrated power outlet, USB-charger and other intelligent solutions, we offer the world leaders lots of comfort.
The minimum amount of components allow a wide variety of possible arrangements, thus allowing the German chairman Merkel, president Macron and the chairman of the European Commission to comprehensively exchange thoughts, while for example the president of China, Xi Jinping, is able to use the private space of TOOtheLOUNGE to concentrate on important documents'”
