Format Mobile Credenza by BDI designed by Matthew Weatherly
At A Glance: Mobile, highly functional, and gorgeously designed, the Format Mobile Credenza is an island of specialized office storage. Easily accessible printer tray? Check. Lateral file drawer? Check, and it stores both legal and letter sized files. Wood veneer? Yep. What's missing ... oh yeah, the casters. Check those off the list too.
What's To Like: Every credenza should have casters, but the Format Credenza's the only one that does. Other features like the pull-out printer tray are really nice, but they wouldn't be such a draw if the credenza wasn't easily movable.
What's Not to Like: It seems like BDI has thought of everything with this one. The only thing we can think of is that the credenza's weight makes it necessary for some strong folks to assist when it's first delivered.
The Bottom Line: This highly functional credenza is the icing on the cake for the highly mobile Format Office by BDI. Includes pull-out printer tray and file storage in a black oak or walnut veneer with white laminate.

Matthew Weatherly designed the entire Format Office system, including the beautiful centerpiece of the desk. But the mobile credenza might just be the most impressive piece of the puzzle. It marries form to function at a truly high level.
The look of the credenza is modeled after the desk to which it is paired. White, black oak or walnut laminate finishes that provide a clean, clear, refined aesthetic. Smooth surfaces and smoother functionality, and a classic but contemporary feel mark this beautiful example of modern design.
In terms of practical use, the Format Mobile Credenza is way ahead of the game. Each model features an open space in the middle that can be used for storage or display, but is perfectly suited to carrying your personal printer. The open space is actually a tray which can be pulled out to provide you ease of access - another way this product makes your life just a bit better at work. The separate drawers on the credenza are appropriately varied in size, making this piece much more than a one piece fits all storage solution. With the Format Mobile Credenza you can be sure you'll be able to effectively and attractively store whatever is necessary. That includes filing - one of the largest drawers on the piece is a perfect working file cabinet. Best of all, everything on the credenza is, you guessed it, mobile. Not only can your stuff go where you go, you can continually change and refine your office space to fit your particular needs.
The Format Mobile Credenza is paired perfectly with its mates in the Format Office system, including the Format Desk and the Format File Pedestal. Use them all for a truly complete and truly gorgeous office system.
