Prak

Who are you and what is your role at stocubo?


I'm Prak and I work as a product designer and art director at stocubo.


Why do you like working at stocubo?

I appreciate the corporate philosophy, the fair pay and the working conditions. The company is very family-friendly and colorful. It's great that sustainable and affordable furniture is made right here on my doorstep!



What is your highlight so far during your time at stocubo?


Our pop-up store in Kreuzberg and the next one is already on the way, but ... pssst


How many cubes do you have and what do you use them for?

Hmmm ... I guess it would have to be around 30 to 40. About half of them I have here in my apartment, I use the cubes in the kitchen and for my clothes. The other half is in my studio in Kreuzberg, and are mainly used there for design books and materials.




How often have you set up your cubes differently?


About twice a year. I usually remodel just before my birthday, it's almost like a ritual: I usually also buy new plants or prints, redesign the whole room and give away things I don't need anymore to make room. And when friends then drop by on my birthday, everything is chic 😉


What is your personal favorite piece that you keep on the stocubo shelf?

The vintage chess set from Iran. When we play a game, we usually sit directly on the carpet, the height is optimal for that.

Anja

Who are you and what is your role at stocubo?

I'm Anja, the employee who drops the hanger every day when she goes to get her jacket. But I actually work in accounting and human resources.


Why do you like working at stocubo?

Ich mag unser Produkt und die Idee, die dahintersteckt. stocubo hat nicht nur die Bedürfnisse der Kunden im Fokus, sondern auch die jedes einzelnen Mitarbeiters. Die Zusammenarbeit im Team ist sehr familiär und wertschätzend. Alle Kollegen arbeiten auf Augenhöhe. Den Mitarbeitern wird ein großes Vertrauen entgegengebracht. Das fördert meiner Meinung nach das Arbeitsklima. Ich bereue keinen einzigen Tag, mich für stocubo entschieden zu haben und arbeite auch nach nunmehr 4 Jahren immer noch sehr gerne hier.


What is your highlight so far during your time at stocubo?

The moment when I saw our first Imagefilm gave me goosebumps and made me proud to be part of stocubo.

What do you think is the best thing about the stocubo shelving system?


I used to like to move furniture and rearrange rooms just for fun. Today, our lives are constantly changing and our shelves change with us. They are always adapting to our new needs. I like this flexibility.




Where and how do you live?

live with my family in a four-room apartment in an old building in Moabit. The center of our family life is our living room. Here we eat, play, do handicrafts, lounge around, learn, sew, hull, listen to a lot of music, discuss, hold our family council and receive friends. Almost everything we need for this is stored in our stocubo shelves.


How many cubes do you have and what do you use them for?

I have just counted: There are currently 85 cubes of all kinds in our apartment. The cubes house many books, games, a variety of vinyl records and other sundries. In our hallway they hold our shoes and in the living room they manage our hi-fi modules and everything that goes with them.

Wie oft hast Du Deine Cubes ab und wieder anders aufgebaut?

Certainly 3-4 times a year. Actually, every time more cubes are added.

What is your personal favorite piece that you keep on the stocubo shelf?

Unsere Plattensammlung - mittlerweile haben wir für unsere Sammlung 14 Cubes in unserem Wohnzimmer stehen.

The perfect storage for any record collection:


Kilian

Who are you and what is your role at stocubo?

I am Kilian and work as a shipping employee at stocubo while studying to be an environmental engineer.


Why do you like working at stocubo?

Wegen der nette Kollegen und weil ich weiß, dass ich ein gutes Produkt an tolle Kunden schicke.


What do you think is the best thing about the stocubo shelving system?

I like the minimalist aspect and the many possible combinations.

Where and how do you live?

I live with my girlfriend at the Kotti in Berlin-Kreuzberg.




How many cubes do you have and what do you use them for?

I own about 20 Cubes. Four of them I use as a sideboard, the rest for a living room shelf.


How often have you set up your cubes differently?

I have already rearranged the living room shelf twice. The sideboard is fixed with wall brackets, so I don't rearrange that so often.
