Lean Desk - the original open source Opendesk

Our first foray into digital fabrication and distributed manufacturing, the Lean Desk is the original Opendesk. A flexible 4 person workstation, it was built for startups and established teams alike - and is popular for its spacious work surface.

Our Lean Desk has continuous central cable-management, with a nice slot for fixing monitor arms along the whole length. Hiding these cables away, we’ve designed modular covers that can be swapped around and provide different functions - from a plain cover to a mobile phone & tablet holder and desk tidy.

Quality materials and neat features

All Opendesks are made from quality, FSC-certified baltic plywood. Coming from managed forestry it’s good to know your desk was sustainably grown.

A neat Lean Desk feature are the pictured modular cable covers - these hide wiring, and can be swapped to give different uses - from a mobile phone or tablet holder to a desk tidy, or simply just a plain cover. There are other designs for this ‘module’ - like an LED light and wireless phone charger - available on request.

What makes the Lean Desk different?

The Lean Desk is designed to be manufactured by a network of independent makers all around the world. This is possible thanks to Opendesk’s alternative supply chain - designers share designs for products that can be downloaded and made locally using the latest digital tools.

We call this model ‘Open Making’.
