Agility plays a decisive role with regard to concepts of self-determined use of space. The room must give the space to define it. The name Agito is derived from this intention, Latin for : to set in motion. Its clean and timeless design offers visual tranquility in a time dominated by information overload and visual stimuli. As a hybrid piece of furniture, Agito relieves users of the need to constantly make new purchasing decisions and fulfills the demand for minimalism in a resource-saving way. During the pandemic at the latest, it became obvious that the majority of living situations do not meet the combined requirements of a home - and office. Agito solves this problem, following the example of Max Bill's Ulm stool, by reviving the symbol of space-independence as a multifunctional piece of furniture.
