The modular Kano Storage units, available in three different sizes, are ideal for creating a multifunctional hub in your workplace. They were originally designed for the rapidly growing startup, Kano, who wanted moveable storage units in different sizes that could be used in different formations for various purposes.
The smallest of the units measures 500mm by 450mm by 1000mm and is ideal for those with limited space. Use it as a TV stand for conference calls or add some cushions atop to turn it into a casual bench for a breakout area.
The medium Kano unit is a similar height to a kitchen counter (measuring 500mm by 900mm by 1000mm) making it the perfect catering solution for your office coffee machine and tea supplies. It also has ample storage for items up to A4 size.
The largest of the units is 500mm by 1070mm by 1000mm- the perfect height for a temporary standing workstation or for hosting quick standing meetings. Again, there’s plenty of storage space for items and papers up to A3 size.
The options are endless when combining these three different units together: a meeting hub, breakout space, office canteen, workshop area or even use them as a long space dividing wall in open plan offices. All three sizes are provided with castors, meaning they can be easily moved and combined in any number of patterns. Pull units away from the wall and place them in the centre of the room as a central hub/ workstation. Each design also has a padlock loop so valuables can be safely stored away.

What makes the Kano Storage different?
The Kano Storage is designed to be manufactured by a network of independent makers all around the world. This is possible thanks to Opendesk’s alternative supply chain - designers share designs for products that can be downloaded and made locally using the latest digital tools.
We call this model ‘Open Making’.
