Notes: Opendesk

Sustainable design that supports local makers at an affordable cost, what more can we ask for? Opendesk is a company that I really look up to. Their beautifully minimal design solutions are not compromised by their strong ethos and design values.

Opendesk is a London based company that hosts digital design solutions. How it works is you purchase the digital furniture designs online and they source a local maker to build the furniture for you. This encourages the local economy, while also cutting down on unnecessary airfare and packaging.

Designers get a global distribution channel

Makers get profitable jobs and new customers

You get designer products without the designer price tag, a more social, eco-friendly alternative to mass-production and an affordable way to buy custom made products.

Making this company a very attractive source for furniture buying.

On top of all the brilliant reasons we already have to use Opendesk – their furniture is beautiful too. Made from Birch Ply, with simple inertlocking joint fixtures, this raw wood finish is accessible to use in any contemporary space.
