The brief

The concept was fully funded after it’s launch on Kickstarter by a Danish engineering firm. Afterwards the design was acquired by Posturite.

They tasked us with redesigning and engineering Oploft to perform more effectively, conform with safety, hit a commercially viable unit cost, whist retaining its Scandinavian good looks and ultra slim profile.

The bang

We turned Oploft into a commercially viable product. We were responsible for making the concept work in the real world, whilst maintaining a beautiful aesthetic.

In the Kickstarter campaign video, the desk looked and performed well. In reality, friction was causing the desk to be incredibly stiff to close and was not locking solidly in its different positions. It also failed its external safety review on many points. We solved all these challenges, testing iteratively with multiple prototypes built in-house.

The result

In a quickly saturating market, we are managing the large volume production of Oploft.

After our re-design Oploft met all safety requirements, as well as being easier and more ergonomic to use, with a greater level of mechanical assistance. while maintaining its ultra slim 30mm depth, locking solidly and raising/lowering smoothly.
