Gispen CIMO furniture line - Gispen - HAY - Peter de Boer

CIMO derives its name from the innovative combination of its ‘circular’ and ‘modular’ characteristics. The CIMO desk collection combines peerless sustainability with clever design. Not to mention its smart adjustment mechanism, as well as a unique design that supports a healthy way of working. Flexible, quick and simple to operate, CIMO allows you to freely alternate between sitting and standing at your desk.

Peter de Boer (1952) went to technical secondary school (MTS), studied mechanical engineering at higher technical level (HTS) and Industrial Design at the Rietveld Academy.

He worked for a short time as a freelance designer and in 1980 joined Gispen as a product designer.

Future proof

    In the ever changing business environment, this versatile and modular system ensures that CIMO meets all the workplace requirements of today, as well as those of tomorrow. The basic structure of CIMO stands, but its function and appearance can be easily changed to suit new requirements, even after several years of use. This is made possible due to its modular connections; everything is put together via screw-, magnet- and snap-on connections. No special tools are required for (dis)assembly.

    One of many options available is to upgrade a single workstation to a workstation for-two, or the other way around. Convert an open working area into a private working area by adding dividing screens, or simply change the colour scheme. With just a few connection points, changing the setup of the workstation from sit-sit to sit-stand (or the other way around) couldn’t be simpler. This enables your employees to change postures regularly, preventing possible health issues.

    Moreover, CIMO adapts easily to different working methods. From working individually to working together and from focusing to consulting. CIMO offers the perfect solution for “agile” working, such as Scrum.

    Peter de Boer has designed a great number of products for Gispen, including chairs, table programmes, workplace lines, lamps, cupboards and office concepts.
