The Edge Desk System (The Edge), the world’s best desk for the way we work today, has raised nearly $150,000 in five days thanks to 440+ backers. The Edge comes to market having already won Wayfair.com’s Kitchen Cabinet Grand Prize Award for Innovation and having been tested by more than five-hundred college students, millenials and entrepreneurs across the country. Everyone seems to agree that The Edge is the perfect solution for every work environment.
The Edge Desk is designed for small spaces ranging from urban apartments, college dorm rooms, shared office spaces, outdoors, and anywhere today’s function-first, ergonomically conscious millennial workers choose. With a built-in kneeling chair, The Edge is the solution for those workers looking for focused productivity, comfort and flexibility. The revolutionary desk is lightweight and comes fully assembled, ready to set up in less than 10-seconds or fold down to just 6 inches, for easy storage, without any tools.
“We no longer work at giant, uncomfortable desks, in just one place,” said Marc Rosenberg, Founder and Inventor of The Edge Desk. “Young professionals, artists and students deserve flexibility with how and where they work. Sitting uncomfortably or slouched in a cramped living space or cubicle doesn’t cut it anymore. The Edge is a patented 1-piece desk/easel/chair combination that works perfectly with today’s mobile lifestyle, delivering comfort and function on demand.”
The patented “Edge” of the desk was created to hold a series of accessories (sold separately), which will enhance the work experience while keeping the desktop workspace clear of clutter. Attachments will include: desk light, cup holder, universal charging docks, speakers, paper/pen holders, and snack tray. The Edge user can select accessories specific to their needs and work style, and each is designed to fold flat for easy storage without detaching.
In addition, by simply rotating the desk from “Landscape” to “Portrait” mode, The Edge transforms into a one-of-a-kind artist’s easel. Until now, students, artists and enthusiasts have not had a portable, lightweight easel that folds and transports easily. Many times, they are forced to carry cumbersome boards to attach to their canvases. The Edge can be used indoor, outdoor; anywhere creative minds want to create. Plus the ergonomic seat and kneeling chair provide superior comfort over an art horse or other setup. A series of Artist accessories will be available as well.
“Students laugh about the desks in their dorms and use them largely as a dumping ground. They resent the space being taken and would prefer to use it for a futon or yoga mat. They love The Edge because they can focus on their work in their room when needed and fold it away when done,” said Rosenberg.
The Edge Desk System is available now on Kickstarter.
