V.O.B. - Interior Design: HOERBOARD DJ STAND

“Beauty is simple” David Kornmann, Creative Director of Hoerboard explains. The German company is comprised of a conceptual design team and skilled craftsmen who search for simplicity and the removal of everything unessential which has resulted in the creation of functional and visually uncomplicated products.

Hoerboard has recently released their latest piece of furniture called Scomber Mix Set up Technics 1210. The Scomber is designed to make all your turntables, CD-players and mixers fit perfectly into a great looking workstation. The piece is made from CNC-machined MDF material and is fixed to a laser-cut powder-coated steel support, finished with high gloss coats of various colors.

On top of a sleek and minimalist design, the Scomber wants to keep the clutter out of sight by placing all connections underneath the desk and concealing all power cables inside the stand. The starting price is around $3000 and will go up depending on customizations and accessories.

featuring a double-height layout, the ground floor accommodates a design showroom. the display concept,
which was also created by jacob + macfarlane architects, was developed as an extrapolation of the 'orange cube's
architectural language. taking the treatment of the facade, a three-dimensional volume was generated for an
L-shaped wall that wraps around the space. sixty 'alvéoles' are used to display furniture pieces,
while the unit as a whole define the circulation of the floor.
