Michel Charlot, 2016
Office accessories designed by Michel Charlot introduce unusual organic-shaped designs to the usually austere office environment. Inspired by cartoons and sculptures, the different containers add a cheerful touch that will brighten up any setting. O-Tidy is a useful, versatile storage container. The design not only offers a tray and cup function but also combines their simple shapes into a new, perfectly proportioned object. Made from robust plastic, O-Tidy is available in a selection of colours.
After completing a degree in industrial design at the Ecole Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne (ECAL), Swiss designer Michel Charlot worked for Jasper Morrison Ltd in Paris, London and Tokyo. In 2011 he set up his own studio in Basel and has since worked for a number of prestigious clients. His collaboration with Vitra began in 2013.
