Sleek, smooth and functional is an apt description of René Holten's Lotus. Made from Cristalplant, a new composite material that's snow-white, as hard as marble, soft to the touch and easy to clean. The design of the Lotus stretches the frontiers of this material to its limits. The way in which the molded tablet flows into the shell is only possible with this sort of composite material. The central stainless-steel base with its four slim legs emphasizes the sloping shape of the shell. Lotus features a molded tablet for writing or working with a laptop. Intended for the commercial market, but at home in the home office. Innovative and functional design. Good Industrial Design Award, 2008.
