As Jozo Vrdoljak/Novac writes, Sobocan, a Croatian company from Medjimurje boasts the attractive Movo mobile office for working from home that provides professional working conditions, and is also an an appealing design element.
”The Movo mobile office takes up minimal space and provides the user with maximum comfort when performing their various work tasks. After finishing their work, it’s very easy to close down, lock up if necessary and push it away. Each of the models is mobile, collapsible, fully equipped with an electrical box and storage and has the possibility of locking,” said Dejan Sobocan, CEO of Sobocan, who encouraged the creation of these products.
The design team
The idea was developed by the design team of Anamarija Burazin as product designer as well as Croatian architects Mirna Jovic and Jakov Fatovic.
”It took only four months from the idea to the realisation and the finished product. During the first presentation at Zagreb Design Week alone we received a lot of positive reactions, which continued to arrive day by day. The Movo mobile office is basically a product that we designed, developed and produced with an emphasis on the European Union market. The fact that it is recognised by the profession at the European level is a confirmation that we’ve created a top quality product. The Movo mobile office is already present in Croatian and German households. The first was bought in Zagreb. We’re currently in the negotiation phase with several large global corporations who see it as a product for their employees, as well as with several designer furniture chains. This is a great success because we’re still only just beginning,” explained Dejan Sobocan.
The most significant investments were made by the Sobocan company back in 2015, when a new plant and two canopies covering a total area of 3200 square metres were built, which enabled the optimisation of business processes and the optimisation of business, which resulted in a significant increase in the number of employees. Back in 2016, Sobocan opened its own Office for Design and Architecture in Zagreb, and today the company provides its clients with a complete service, starting from interior design to the production and installation of furniture and related equipment within the building. Their Zagreb office employs a professional multidisciplinary team with many years of experience on both the domestic and foreign markets.
It offers its customers individual solutions and the complete engineering process: the development of an innovative concept, prototyping, consulting, successful delivery and precise installation according to the “turnkey” system in Croatia and the world.
This company’s projects have been implemented in numerous European countries, as well as Egypt, Algeria and the United Arab Emirates. Furthermore, in 2019, Sobocan opened the new ”hall 4”, which houses a new logistics centre. In the newly built hall which covers 5100 square metres, the final assembly, quality control, packaging, storage and loading of goods take place. The total value of the project stands at a massive 17.3 million kuna, of which 4.5 million kuna is from the European Regional Development Fund.
