Working on finishing touches to our website

Working on finishing touches to our website whilst juggling with new product design development. Fun times! This is our La-Stand in single use mode propping up my laptop while I have some sit down time. Yup, I tidied my desk for this photo! •

Laptop Stand that splits into two parts

Our La-Stand splits into two parts you can use it for two devices at the same time. Here it’s shown with a MacBook Pro and iPad Pro – ideal for users of the @astropadapp so you can draw in the perfect position on your tablet but keep an eye on the other screen at the same time.
This is a solution to a problem I’ve been having for ages with the iPad Pro, I really dislike drawing on a horizontal flat surface and the SmartKeyboard stand for the iPad can’t manage a good drawing position. So I designed a stand that can do it all! The angle is perfect for drafting and sketching (one of my favourite hobbies) and with the laptop on the other half I can use it as an extension of my workspace with a separate keyboard for quick shortcuts – within seconds I have the ultimate productive workstation which I can just chuck in my bag when I am done!

This setup would also work really well for a mobile music production rig using a laptop and a mini midi keyboard or MPC.
The top of the La-Stand is lined with silicone to keep your gear scratch free and nice and secure!

The prototypes of these are out of testing now and are bang on so we will be taking orders very very soon. Please do follow us as we’ll be posting release info right here.

Our S-Desk Two setup

Our S-Desk Two setup with a full size Apple keyboard, trackpad, 15″ MacBook Pro and iPhone 6s. I know, I know, another pic with a load of Apple product on it, but they are digital tools of our trade (this is all my own kit) and they still look very well upon our desks. Going to try and borrow other blingy Mac alternatives for some variation in setup shots and to show that our desks work with all manor of equipment. We’ve even got customers that use these for model and jewellery making – photos of that coming soon. If you can work on it sitting down, you can work on it standing up.

He was a master carpenter

This is my late father who passed away nearly 7 years ago. He was a master carpenter and still my absolute inspiration for the furniture we are designing today. We worked on all sorts of projects together (on the right we were fitting bell stocks in a church tower). I’m pretty sure he would love what we are doing with CNC now, although I could still do with the benefit of his experience, as his knowledge of woodwork was unsurpassed. Wish I could show you my Instagram account – miss you Dad.

22 and 90 degree angles

Our S-Desk One is purposely designed from 22 and 90 degree angles taken from the perfect positioning of your keyboard and screen. We worked a long time on finding the sweet spot for comfort whilst standing. Then from the angles came beauty! It makes hand finishing each desk a challenge but it’s totally worth it.
