As the landscape of the office changes, xLocker 2 introduces a unique steel personal storage solution for flexible, agile, activity based working (ABW) environments or end-of-journey storage for commuters and mobile workers.
July 7th, 2015
Designed to aid collaboration, drive productivity, maximise space and provide better flexibility than traditional locker storage, the xLocker range solves the problems associated with individual storage needs in communal multi-purpose work environments.
An evolution of the range, the xLocker 2 features soft-wiring with the ability to power portable devices. A new patented joining system allows faster assembly on site, reducing the number of tools needed and allows for simple reconfiguration and re-use.
Like the original xLocker, the xLocker 2 can also be fitted with laminate or veneered doors, creating a customised fit-out, whilst still maintaining modularity, optional perforations, choice of colours and finishes and various locking options with up to 100% recyclability.
The xLocker 2 range serves as a range of flexible and reconfigurable lockers that connect together, a connection to the building and a place to start and end the day. With the soft wiring options, the range not only stands as a place to store work and personal belongings, but also a place to recharge portable devices.
xLocker 2 is the latest Planex solution to empower people to work more effectively in the evolving workplace. As an Australian family owned, furniture designer and manufacturer based in Melbourne, Planex has been providing market leading custom options solutions for contemporary interiors since 1972.
Catering across commercial, educational, sports, hospitality and residential markets, the current storage range consists of: Fatfile, Flox, Freefold, Linea, Low-Rider, MoPed, Plan, Security, S-Series, Virtu, Wishbone, xLocker2 and X-System featuring original designs by Alexander Lotzerstain, Paul Morris, Leo Ryner and associate design partner, Planex Design.

“I’m interested in the invisibility of the design scripts that are hidden within objects we use every day that channel certain stereotypes,” says Central St Martins course leader Betti Marenko. Looking around there are plenty of design objects embedded with gender stereotypes – from the ubiquitous fail of Bic for Her pens to Nika Zupanc’s “feminine” gold chair for Moooi.
