“Physical environments must be able to adapt to the collaboration process.
This means that the environment must be adaptable to what people need to achieve together. If this requires a team of two people, the environment should allow it; if it requires a team of 100 to work best, the environment should allow that too.”

– Patrick Frick, Co-Founder Moving Walls Ltd.

SWISS DESIGN

Moving Walls products were designed and developed in close collaboration with the internationally renowned designer Jörg Boner. The clean lines and reduced aesthetics of the designs meet the brand’s demand for multifunctional office furniture.

The Swiss designer has been running his own design office, Jörg Boner product design, in Zurich since 2001 and also teaches at ECAL Lausanne. Jörg Boner has a wide-ranging product portfolio and designs furniture for renowned companies such as Wogg, Wittmann and Stattmann Neue Moebel, as well as utility items for industrial production and individual pieces. His products are always both functional and pictorial, serving and telling. Time and again, his developments challenge traditional production methods and visual habits.

Today Jörg Boner is one of the most important Swiss designers of the “middle generation” and was awarded the prestigious Grand Prix Design by the Swiss Confederation in 2011 for his ongoing contribution to Swiss design and his commitment as a designer and teacher.

“I believe that the horizontal surfaces will become smaller and the vertical surfaces larger.
The horizontal area is the private area, it is something like land ownership. The vertical area, on the other hand, is like a public space. You can form a plenum around it.”

– Jörg Boner, Designer

SWISS MADE

Moving Walls attaches significant importance to the highest quality in the manufacture of its products and is committed to the “MADE IN SWITZERLAND” label.

VISION & MISSION

At the heart of the family-run company Moving Walls Ltd. is the ideological approach of architect, facilitator and thinker Matt Taylor and architect Frank Lloyd Wright, that the interface of physical environment, organisational practices and tools is critical to solving complex systemic problems.

This approach as a starting point and the conviction that the environment must be able to adapt to specific collaborative requirements led the brothers Marcel and Patrick Frick to found Moving Walls with the vision of creating spaces for collaboration and enabling problem solving in groups. Marcel Frick, a trained carpenter, and Patrick Frick, co-founder of Value Web and facilitator at the World Economic Forum, developed the Moving Wall, a modular tool for improving collaborative work and creating agile and flexible spaces.
