Small or big dreams cost the same

I had an important meeting with the board.
The data was at my fingertips, but I could not draft any meaningful conclusion. I was stuck, struggling to focus and unable to think differently.
At that moment I started working on this project.
To let me break free from my routine.
If you do what you've always done you'll get what you've always gotten. Dare to think.

Sustainable materials for better results

Bamboo is often called the worlds most sustainable resource. It grows fast and absorbs 5 times more carbon than any other tree.
As most bamboo comes from Asia, I have decided to cooperate with a local woodworking company in Wuyishan, China. To verify excellent working conditions and high quality, I have visited my supplier several times.
The advantage of locally manufacturing the goods is that I only ship the parts which are necessary. To reduce our ecological foodprint further, I ship all goods by boat.

The worlds most compact desk

My problem was always clear:
"create an accessible yet inspiring workspace".
I started off with remote cabins, solar charged bike trailers, foldable chairs, always more mobile.
The final product fits in your backpack.
60 prototypes later I finally achieved the patented folding mechanism. Your back and neck will enjoy the inclined surface.
