Casulo is a complete set of room furniture which can be set up in less than ten minutes and later disassembled and repacked like a standard Euro pallet of 80 cm by 120 cm (31.5 inch by 47.2 inch). No tools are needed in the process.
A packed Casulo can be transported and stored at nominal expense by any carrier and shipping agent. Not only can a disassembled Casulo unit be packed with one’s personal items. The Casulo itself is sturdy and thus no additional packaging materials are necessary when it is ready for transport. The Casulo can then either be sent to a prearranged address or delivered directly to one’s flat. Two people can lift, carry, and assemble each piece of furniture within the Casulo. The unit is constructed of durable, long-lasting materials. A Casulo offers a solution for today’s style of life - “Here today – must move tomorrow.”

Detailed Description of the Casulo

Each Casulo unit includes all the essential furniture for setting up in a new place: Wardrobe, large desk/table (surface 80 cm by 160 cm / 31.5 inch by 63 inch) with a separate desk cabinet with locking drawers, a revolving, height-adjustable desk chair, two stools, a single bed (200 cm by 80 cm / 78.7 inch by 31.5 inch) and mattress, and a tall set of shelves. The stools and the drawers of the desk cabinet also serve and double as additional storage containers. When disassembled and packed the Casulo becomes a crate measuring 120 cm (47.2 inch) in length, 90 cm (35.4 inch) in height, and 80 cm (31.5 inch) in width. Without any tools whatsoever the Casulo can be packed to the size of the standard European four-way pallet within just seven minutes. The Casulo will even fit into the boot of a Renault Kangoo. When the furniture has been disassembled and prepared for transport the Casulo is safe and sturdy; additional packing materials are not required. An additional feature of the Casulo is that when packed to the size of the European pallet half of its volume becomes space for storage and at least two hundred kilograms (440 pounds) can be safely placed atop the Casulo. Even after many moves the strong materials chosen for the Casulo mean that the unit will never show signs of wear and tear. A variety of ingenious refinements make each Casulo a unified, complete intelligent design providing a unique solution to moving house for an increasingly mobile generation: invisible locks on the desk drawers, a magnetised clothes rack system, safeguards for computer cables and electric wires.
One need no longer bother with arranging the annoying details of moving house for the Casulo can be transported anywhere throughout Germany as a small container crate for 80 Euros or be placed in storage for 10 Euros a month. Though it takes only one person to set up and dismantle the Casulo, two people can do it quite easily and comfortably, thus making a move relatively inexpensive and effortless.

The Casulo is for people on the move, those in job training, students, and people who have to change their location frequently. The unit is ideal for people in the service industries. People who must move frequently and rent empty rooms need no longer accumulate sets of inexpensive furnishings whose transportation costs are higher than the value of the furniture.
