About

Everything in Place

Bench was designed to centralize the things you need most and present them in an organized way. We wanted users to be able to quickly find and access their stuff. From pens and pencils, erasers, stylus, usb and smart devices Bench neatly organizes everything.

A newcomer to the everyday space is the ubiquitous smartphone. No matter the brand of smartphone, Bench positions it so you can quickly glance down to check alerts. In addition, we’ve included a channel on the Desk Rail that allows users to add a charging or sync cable.

Get organized.

How it came about

People have all kind of devices, smartphones, tablets and other objects laying around the office, knight table, or desk. Therefore we wanted to create a new type of device that could hold any object that you may want to keep organize in one neat place. So we set out to design a new device that could organize any mess with ease.

Details & Features:

-Bench is 10'' long giving the user a lot of space to organize all their mess.
-It is made out of acrylic plastic giving it a very elegant and durable look.
-It uses acrylic foam to secure your devices & gadgets while not making any harm to it.
-It has a channel which allows your device to sync or charge while it is on bench.
-Bench can organize a variety of objects like: Pen, Pencils, Stylus, Markers, Smart phones and tablets.

Helping Hand

 Bench lets you quickly switch from one tool to the next with a contained, natural movement. This is especially helpful when your writing, Typing in your computer or in any other scenario. The size, angle, and padding material in the channel have all be carefully designed and tested to provide a soft landing, making it easy to drop off an item without looking down.

Trying to reference notes and sketches while using a computer can become a pain in the neck. Looking down and to the side, then back up, is neither intuitive nor comfortable. The Desk Rail can be used to hold printed materials, tablets, or other reference materials right in front of you.

Following over 3 months of development and prototyping, sourcing and testing of materials, and building relationships with great vendors, our team is ready to put the Bench into production. This is where Kickstarter comes in, Design is complete and the manufacturing is ready to begin, but we need help funding the tooling and initial production run.

Bench will be manufactured overseas after the campaign ends. We have created great relation with our manufacturer in china and there ready to start production. With your help Bench will become  a reality.

Risks and challenges

We value trust between backers and think its very import for us as creators to foment and maintain this relationship to have a better campaign. Just like our previous project, we will make sure the manufacturing and delivery be made on time. When we reach 100% of the funding goal, we will get right to the manufacturing process.

The current Bench shown above is a prototype. We plan to enhance Bench upon many meetings and feedbacks. Therefore, we have in mind changing the some features to enhance the product experience.
