About

 

 

 

Ergonomic & Adjustable to the Perfect Height

Using a desk that's too low or too high can cause lasting damage by stressing your back and shoulders. The Foundry Desk adjusts to the perfect height, eliminating strain and keeping you comfortable and productive.

Easy Tool-Free Assembly

The Foundry Desk boasts a patent-pending, tool-free assembly process that takes just minutes. Keep your tools in the garage, and forget the days of miniature hex wrenches and cryptic directions. Just insert the legs, close the levers, flip it over, and you've got the perfect foundation for your workspace.

    

Simple Tool-Free Adjustment

Setting the perfect height for your workspace is critical for proper comfort and ergonomics. The Foundry Desk makes the process simple with just a knob and twist.

 

 

Ample Size & Comfortable Shape

Visually pleasing and ergonomically satisfying, the subtle curvature of the Foundry Desk turns your workplace into a command station with everything you need close at hand.

 

 

 

 

Clean and Sleek

Clear your space and your mind with stylish and discreet cord cutouts on the back corners of the desk. They're designed to keep your cables out of your way and out-of-sight without the eyesore of cable holes and plastic inserts.

 

 

Made to Move

The average person moves 11.4 times in his or her lifetime. That’s 11 disassemblies and reassemblies (if the furniture can last that long). 

The Foundry Desk is specifically designed to be disassembled for easy transportation and reassembled without losing strength or stability. Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, the Foundry Desk will stick with you.

 

     

 

  

 

 

  

Frame Options

The Foundry Desk is constructed from powder-coated, industrial-strength steel.  

Standard Tabletop Options

The standard laminate tabletops are constructed with durable, 1-inch MDF.  

Premium Solid-Wood Options

We've partnered with a small-batch, artisan woodworking team in Oregon to offer premium, solid-wood tabletops. Each premium tabletop is hand-made from solid pine and coated with polyurethane for a smooth, durable finish.

  

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cable Tray

Keep your desk clean and tidy with the Foundry Desk cable tray. It's custom designed to lock onto the frame and gives you the perfect amount of space to hide your cables. We recommend placing a powerstrip directly on the tray so that there's only one cable coming down from the desk. 

 

 

 

Casters

Make your Foundry Desk mobile with casters. It's perfect for those with flexible offices and workspaces. 

How do I order an add-on?

The cable tray can be added for $35 ($15 off retail), and the casters can be added for $20 ($10 off retail). To order these add-ons, simply increase your pledge amount based on the add-ons you want. We will confirm your order for the add-ons after the campaign is complete.

 

 

Foundry Labs was born from a common challenge.  

We found ourselves moving every few years, and every time we moved, we were faced with the same problem of finding a safe way of moving all the furniture. Without fail, one or more pieces of furniture would get damaged from the move. Sometimes, something would break permanently. Other times, it would just weaken and begin to wobble. The only way to solve this was to buy a replacement (often the same exact product!) and go through the trouble of lugging around enormous boxes and finding a car big enough to hold them.

This problem became the genesis of Foundry Labs. Our vision is to create easy and simple furniture that ships to you, assembles in seconds, and moves with you without weakening or breaking. 

The Foundry Desk is the start of our journey. We plan to offer a complete portfolio of home office products that help you be more organized and productive. With the success of our Kickstarter, we plan to design more add-ons to the Foundry Desk, in addition to applying the same easy-to-assemble approach to other products like a bookcase, drawers, etc.

Become a backer, and support us in rethinking how furniture can be designed for the modern world!

 

  

 

We understand that your current space may not be big enough for the Foundry Desk, so we're offering customized delivery dates. 

Choose to receive your Foundry Desk as soon as possible, which is projected for December 2017, or elect to receive it during a month of your choosing up to August 2018. We'll do everything possible to deliver your Foundry Desk on your preferred date. We will collect custom delivery dates with a survey after the campaign closes.

  

Share the Foundry Desk with your friends and help them upgrade their workspaces too! 

 

 

 

 

 

    

 

Risks and challenges

There are risks and challenges that are inherent to any project that may be beyond our control, despite our careful planning. Examples may include problems with scaling from prototyping to mass production or unforeseen delays with customs and shipping products.

We've worked hard over the last year and half to refine the production and supply chain processes to mitigate these risks as much as possible. We've also partnered with a world-class team of experienced experts to help us monitor and manage each phase of the process and are confident in meeting our timelines.

We believe that communication is key! We guarantee to communicate everything and provide timely updates throughout the process. We will work relentlessly to ensure that every backer receives a high-quality product and service experience.
