About Opendesk — a global platform for local making

Opendesk is a global platform for local making. You can use it to download, make and buy work space furniture.

Opendesk has a global network of makers and a collection of furniture by a range of international designers. Because that furniture is designed for digital fabrication, it can be downloaded as a digital file and made locally — on demand, anywhere in the world.

We call this “Open Making”:

  • Designers get a global distribution channel
  • Makers get profitable jobs and new customers
  • You get designer products without the designer price tag, a more social, eco-friendly alternative to mass-production and an affordable way to buy custom made products

We’re focusing first on work space furniture because it’s the best fit for current digital fabrication technology. However, furniture is just the beginning. We’re currently developing a range of smart products with integrated electronic components. As new technologies develop and local making capacity increases, we want to see great design being made locally all around the world.

We’d love you to join us in making this a reality. If you know anyone who you think would be interested in Opendesk, especially if they’re a designer, maker or looking to fit out a work space, please do tell them about us.
