Creative commons lean desk

Opendesk is an open-source furniture design website where you either download a design file and do it yourself or request quotations from local businesses that can make and deliver the finished furniture to you.

The website is global but there are dozens of Australian businesses listed on the site. There is a fee to access the platform, for users and designers, and many designs are available at little or no cost. The technology you need to produce furniture from the platform is a CNC machine (like a computer-driven drill/router that carves shapes out of wood). The Lean Desk (pictured above) is a four-person workstation, made from birch plywood, which is the basic material required for each product on the site. Opendesk estimates the RRP of a constructed Lean Desk to an Australian buyer would range between $1930 to $2570, depending on the builder.
