It’s tough to find a piece of office furniture that does everything you need it to do, but the Frey Desk might be just that piece of furniture. The CNC-cut wooden desk goes from a sitting desk to a standing desk to a drafting desk to an easel, and comes with fully adjustable shelves.
The setup consists of two notched towers into which the components easily slot. The desktop is attached with hinges to two legs. As the desktop moves up or down the assembly, it can be angled until it’s at the right degree for a drafting table surface or an art easel. Or, the legs can be moved as well to keep the desktop surface level. With a few easy adjustments you can move between a sitting desk and a standing desk.
Frey’s Kickstarter campaign had a very modest goal which it successfully reached. According to Nathan Frey, the inventor of the desk, most of the money will go toward presentation and sales. As he very endearingly proves in the promotional video above, Frey’s strengths lie in inventing and production, not so much in the presentation of his idea. The Kickstarter versions of the Frey desk ran between $325 and $521, which is probably indicative of what the retail price will be once the product hits the market.
