About this project

  
         

Out Of The Box Features

The SlatePro’s desk space fits any size computer or laptop. It has multiple display docks for all your mobile devices – phone or tablet. The air vents provide constant cooling for your laptop and other tech products. Plus, it has a heavy duty mousepad that sits flush against the surface. Not to mention, the SlatePro was installed with a filing rack, pen dock, and a recessed cup holder to eliminate any device damage.

Obsessive Attention to Detail

The SlatePro’s surface is cut from pure, premium bamboo and protected by a sheet of clear acrylic. It’s super strong, very light weight, and it will support your computer with ease. The desk's steel legs are completely hand-crafted. They create the perfect height and are made by some of the best metal workers in the USA.

Future of Desks

When you are willing to rethink a simple, everyday item like a desk – innovative design can develop into something extremely special. We’re not saying the SlatePro is a desk ahead of its time – it’s just a desk we designed for the time. Get your SlatePro and discover a new way of thinking. Use it once and you won’t want to sit at a regular desk again. 

Our Story

Hi, my name is Nathan and I am a product designer and the face of the iSkelter Factory on Kickstarter. We are based in Phoenix, Arizona (USA) and made up of a group of unique individuals. We are designers, writers, photographers, and product innovators. 

Being creatives, we enjoy problem solving and nothing makes us happier than creating products that solve a real life problem. Just about every 4 to 6 weeks, we try and create a new product so feel free to follow us to stay up-to-date with iSkelter. 

In 2013, premium bamboo became the material of choice for us due to it's aesthetics but also because it's lightweight, super durable, and can be sanded/polished to mirror the feeling of glass. However, with the birth of the SlatePro, we are extremely excited to begin working with new elements like acrylic and steel.

We Need Your Help

It's time to make the SlatePro Personal TechDesk a retail product for everyone to enjoy. With your help, we will be able to purchase the materials and implement a streamlined production process. The entire production process will be completed in the USA by experienced and passionate craftsmen. 

Shipping and Delivery Time: The SlatePro will be shipped using FedEx Ground for free within the Domestic USA and World-Wide using FedEx International Economy for an additional fee. To ensure correct delivery times - once our goal has been met, we will begin ordering material and start the initial production run. There will be extended delivery times for international shipments.

Risks and challenges

At this point, we've overcome many challenges to create the SlatePro. With great pleasure, we can now confidently offer the finished and polished product to you on Kickstarter.

Kickstarter pledges will be fulfilled in the order they were placed so depending on the success of SlatePro, time will be our biggest challenge. Understanding this, we’ve allocated extra time in our daily factory schedule to ensure that we can ship SlatePro's in the time promised to all Kickstarter backers.

We know it’s possible that we’ll encounter other challenges but we’re fully committed to the SlatePro and we truly appreciate each backer making this retail product available for everyone to enjoy.
