Space Monitor

The Space Monitor’s new design means you can place the monitor closer to you while working and push it flat against the wall when you’re done, allowing you to reclaim the desk space monitors typically consume. A desk clamp and dual hinge keeps the monitor stable while held in various positions or while adjusting the height and distance. Mounted on the double-hinge stand, the monitor appears to float freely, while its geometric bezel-less frame and fabric-patterned finish help it blend into any environment.

Its compact form factor allows you the freedom to place it anywhere, including beside a window or in the middle of the living room, giving users control of their living space. When the screen is rolled up inside the speaker, the device naturally harmonizes with the surroundings just like a beautiful piece of furniture or a premium Hi-Fi audio system. When the screen unfolds, it envelops you with images that feel more realistic than reality. The front speaker is covered with Kvadrat fabric woven with natural wool, lending a warmer feel. The rigid metal of the speaker and the stand as well as their refined geometric silhouette project a sense of stability and refined elegance.
