XOBO's 2011 collection represents three individual pieces that are simple and pure, animated and alive; which invite the user to explore and interact with their shape, form and structure.
The designs came out of space saving ideas; ingenuity of multi- functional, moveable pieces that are practical, colourful and fun.
Xobo Furniture is designed and manufactured in the UK.
