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.
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’.

Locally made near you
We are part of a 600 strong community of global makers, meaning we can pair you with a maker in your locality so your furniture is made on demand and only transported that ‘final mile’ from workshop to your workspace.
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.
