The result of collaboration between Norman Foster and Tecno, the Nomos System is designed to offer virtually unlimited flexibility in terms of layout solutions and to create truly striking office environments.

The versatile and extremely robust Nomos is considered the pioneer of shared structure systems and is a recognised icon of industrial design.

The basic concept is simple: a surface rests on a structure with a central backbone, 2 side support arms and 4 tilted, projecting legs, analogous to the structure of vertebra and ribs of the human body.

Conceived as a solid skeleton with a zoomorphic aesthetic, it allows the dry construction of a wide range of compositions that can be adapted to multiple uses, from individual workstations to large meeting tables, to the latest desk sharing solutions. Versatile and extremely resistant, Nomos today also boasts theĀ intelligence of io.T.

The starting point of the Nomos System is the tubular metal frame, to which legs, feet, supports, work surfaces, superstructures and screens are added. The metal-to-metal connection of the elements assures longer service life and total scrapping at the end of its life cycle.
