Out Standing In The Field
Field Desk from Teenage Engineering.
A space truss constructed from recycled aluminium and assembled with double-sided formica birch plywood, Field Desk is Teenage Engineering’s very own modular workspace. It’s everything it needs to be and nothing it doesn’t. The Teenage Engineering office is made up of people doing a variety of tasks, each with their own needs. Since they love to build things, Teenage Engineering decided to create its own modular work environment for them. Field Desk acknowledges evolving workspaces and everything that comes with them.
Field Desk is part of the Field Rail system. It’s an open-ended range of interconnecting aluminium rails that enable the creation of customisable modular furniture and accessories — and is made from 75% recycled CIRCAL aluminium from Scandinavian manufacturer Hydro.
- R20 is the base of the rail system
- A 20 x 20mm extruded aluminium profile with a centred hole pattern of 25mm
- All parts align to a 25mm square grid
- The A20 clamp is used to connect R20 rails together and form square based shapes
- R10 is used for truss work
- For diagonals, a10 clamps slide onto the r20 rail to fit
- A10 clamp connects the r10 truss work rail to the r20 rail to form a stable structure
- XR10 can be used as the centre of a truss work cross
- One of the most common reasons is for use is to save space when transporting
- The solid 1155 x 770mm board is birch plywood coated in double-sided formica laminate
The Field Desk comes flat-packed, and is easy to assemble and disassemble.
