The Hackable Studio Desk was created to give students the ability to personalize their workspace during their time at the College of Design. You can support this campaign by sponsoring one or more of the 750 desks which will populate the new building. For $1,000, this allows the College to build each desk and donate the proceeds to the building fund.
Made of 3/4” premium plywood, the tops of the desks will be portable, allowing each student to take the desktop with them as they advance in their program and after graduation. Students can personalize their desk design as they develop more fabrication skills — think cutting board or laptop holder, whatever modifications a student wants to make. The bottom of the desks are made with powder-coated steel tubing and a substrate for connecting accessories. The steel frames, which will remain in each studio, can be etched with a donor name to show your support for the UK College of Design in perpetuity.
