About

The most beautiful & inspiring solution to messy cables and cords.

DeskInfinity is a desk accessory with a beautiful Guilloché design and a functional slot to place and hold all common cables and cords. It is completely personalized with your name (or your favorite phrase), laser engraved on it.

The beautiful pattern reflects a unique symbol of Infinity in "all" viewing directions. Made of Alpha-beta Brass, it brings with itself sense of stability, making your working desk, inspiring and beautiful.

Idea & Inspiration

I was intrigued by the presence of stunning Guilloché designs in many premium Swiss -make wristwatches.

I wished to bring this into the hands of everyone. Realizing that I can't make a high-end premium wristwatch with the resources available to me, why not make something simpler - yet functional. 

This was the point when the idea of a beautiful and inspiring "Desk Accessory" was born. I started working out many forms of Guilloché designs.

Some of the shortlisted Guilloché patterns

I listed down all the things, which the product must not have or be.

1. Moving parts - It distracts a person working at a desk with his Macbook or writing pad. 

2. Assembly - I wouldn't like to have something which I need to assemble before using. 

3. Maintenance Free - it should be something that doesn't require regular maintenance. One that is present on my desk, inspires me, is hassle-free and helps in increasing my focus and productivity.

This was when the Infinity pattern and single one-piece design was chosen. Alpha-beta Brass was finalized as the go-to material for its warmth of color, weight, and ease of machinability.

Built for working professionals, writers & coders, creators & makers and anyone who appreciates design and the inspiration that spreads from a beautifully crafted product. It is time to get rid of a boring desk and have something that makes you look forward to reaching your desk every day!

More on Infinity

We all know what the infinity symbol — the sign that represents the immeasurable and the boundless — looks like, but very few of us know what power it holds. As a symbol of the infinite and eternity, the lemniscate opens up a further level of consciousness, helping us to restore our lost unity with Creation and to once again feel at one with the world and all living things. All problems are finite and your potential is infinite. So what is stopping you?

Infinity symbol will rotate with You

Under a single source of light, the infinity symbol will automatically rotate and follow your eyes. So, even while sitting at your desk, you shift your posture, the symbol would - yes, you guessed it right... magically move too! This was also one of the reasons for choosing this specific pattern among the many shortlisted.

For Brass Lovers

Based on feedback from many people, we came to know some of you like it un-plated, Natural Brass. So, we are providing that option too. It makes sense as it gives a unique patina upon aging.

Risks and challenges

We have worked through many prototypes and finalized our vendors. We have taken into account various factors that go into pricing and we are very confident in delivering the product.

We have also made a few test runs for larger batch manufacturing. However, I will not deny the fact that there are always some potential challenges to every Kickstarter campaign that may cause small delays. I promise to provide updates every week - without fail. This will help you know where the project is at every point in time.

I love Kickstarter and have been backer of several projects, so I know how it feels to be a backer. Keeping backers satisfied, will be my priority.

I am here to deliver. Please support me.
