About

Francisco is the most authentic, fully height adjustable and super sustainable standing table for modern spaces

When Form meets Function

Let's face it, you've considered buying a standing table and are left with either cheap plastic contraptions or expensive electronic desks that belong in the office. We designed Francisco with the modern space in mind. Our authentic design features a symmetric bridge that evokes harmony and balance, while the options of vibrant or neutral colors add character to your modern space. A warm bamboo butcher block top with sharp lines and rounded edges brings it all together.  

Fully Adjustable 'You'ser Experience

Fully adjustable table from sit (31") to stand (43") - perfect for anyone up to 6 feet tall  (psst... we're working on making taller tables). We made the operations super simple: easily raise the table top with just two fingers (practically levitates to your desired height) and push down effortlessly when you wish to sit. Incredibly durable and reliable, levitabl is designed to last a lifetime. 

Low Tech is the New Smart Tech

We only use materials and components that are sustainable, reusable and recyclable. Our fully adjustable elevation mechanism comes from high quality springs that assist you as you adjust for that perfect standing posture (no electronics, no motors). After many years of use, you can swap out the springs for a low cost and keep going. Our frames are constructed using recycled aluminum (100% recyclable) and sustainable bamboo table tops.  Electronic tables may seem convenient but they are incredibly hard to recycle upon failure and ultimately end up creating toxic electronic waste.  

Designed + Built in the USA

Everyone loves a comeback and the Midwest is roaring back! We design, engineer, build and support our products in the super diverse and inclusive community of Bloomington, Indiana. We are excited about tapping into the massive ingenuity and enterprise that we see in the Midwest. Our primary reasons for setting up shop in the Midwest are: its access to world class engineering supplier base, exceptional talent pool (IU/Purdue/Notre Dame) and logistical connectivity (Indianapolis is FedEx's national hub). 

Easy-Peasy Assembly

Flat pack furniture is super annoying to assemble- we could not agree more! That's why we spent a ton of time thinking about packaging and assembly. Our core comes assembled, so all you need to do is attach the base, table top and grill with just an Allen Key (included).  

Limited Edition Francisco Hallway Table

We have created a small hallway table that shares the same design inspiration as the Francisco standing table.   

About Us 

We are idealists, designers, engineers and problem solvers. In our own small way, we strive for design and engineering to play a role in building a more sustainable future. Our 'low tech = smart tech' ideology is at the cornerstone of this sustainable mission. 

Mani has over two decades of mechanical engineering experience in the Midwest, implementing lean manufacturing, six sigma and continuous process improvement. Today, he teaches operations management at the Kelley School of Business. 

Prash has advised some of world's leading organizations on product strategy and innovation. A recent finance graduate from The Wharton School, Prash aims to put his engineering and consulting backgrounds to build a sustainable business, in every sense. 

Risks and challenges

Together, the founders bring business, mechanical and industrial engineering expertise required to source, build and ship products. In fact, Mani has over two decades of experience working on complex engineering, including elevator engineering. While there are always risks & challenges with creating and delivering a brand new product:

We have minimized risks both by identifying qualified/reliable suppliers and establishing a well defined process from design, development to production.

By working only with US based local/Midwest suppliers, we eliminate risks associated with the inbound logistics and customs, while simultaneously improving the safety/reliability of components.

We have chosen to further mitigate risks associated with fulfillment by limiting the geographic scope of our campaign- currently, rewards of our tables are limited to North American backers.
