The decisive demand specified by Danish furniture manufacturer Softline was the development of a lightweight, portable cabinet. On that account, a textile envelope meeting both aesthetic and functional requirements was developed: the textile skin forms the frame and functions as a hinge. Panels made of honeycomb board provide the necessary bracing and are fixed in place by two sheet metal parts – a floor and a top element – as well as four internal straps. The latter also have the function of supporting the inserted shelves. Thanks to the use of predominantly lightweight materials, the overall weight of ‘porter’ is very low, so that the cabinet is flexibly usable and easy to transport.
