CHICAGO, Sept. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- To thank its' Kickstarter and Indiegogo supporters, The Edge Desk™ is the first project to live stream, as it ramps up pre-production of the first desks and share with the company's backers. Streaming will begin at 8 p.m. CDT on September 27.
As The Edge Desk begins production from its partner factory in Ben Cat, Vietnam, the company wants to give an inside look of getting the product shipped. More than 1,500 backers took to the breakthrough product and generated more than $460K, pushing The Edge Desk into the top one percent of all Kickstarter campaigns launched to date. Desks were ordered in 27 countries, showing the support for a product that helps people work focused and comfortably wherever they choose.
"We want to give our backers a look at the project as it comes to life with their support," says Marc Rosenberg, inventor. "By airing a live Facebook stream, our fans will be in the know when their very own The Edge Desk will be on its way."
Recognizing the need for changes in how we live and work, The Edge Desk System, is a must-have for anyone working in a tight space, or on-the-go. It's a folding desk/kneeling chair/easel that offers a way to be productive and have good posture. It's great for young professionals, millennials, dorm rooms, studio apartments and more. Artists also like the Edge Desk as it easily transforms into a portable easel and chair all-in-one.
After visiting his daughter in college, who was cramped for space, Rosenberg, had this fabulous idea for a portable, ergonomic desk - The Edge Desk that is designed for today's mobile lifestyle. The design is sleek, under 30 lbs, sets up in 30 seconds, adjusts to fit anyone and comes fully assembled. It folds flat and can be stored under a bed.
Desks were ordered in 27 countries, showing the support for a product that helps people work comfortably wherever they choose.
The name "The Edge" stems from the unique channel that surrounds the desktop allowing you to customize your experience by snapping in one or more of the specially designed accessories, giving you a clean and clutter free work experience without compromising desk space. The first accessories being made include: Phone Station, Tablet Station, and Drink Holder.
Unlike many crowd funding campaigns, The Edge has a unique advantage as it prepares to come to market. The team behind the idea is comprised of a group of consumer product experts with a combination of manufacturing, engineering, design, and marketing expertise including more than 100 patents and ties to more than $4B in retail sales across toys, health and beauty aids, electronics and more.
The Edge Desk is the first of a line of productivity centric products the company plans to create.
The Edge products are available through www.theedgedesk.com . Distributors are welcome to sign up through the site. The suggested retail for the desk is $350 and is shipping later this fall.
