The best Flatmate you’ll ever have: Rawside launch home desk

Available in a delicious array of colours, Flatmate is a flat packed, easy to assemble work from home (or anywhere) desk.

05/01/2021 2 min read

Not ones to be sideswiped by a global pandemic, the team at Rawside used their time working from home to develop an array of new and exciting products.

The first product off the blocks was Flatmate. The team wanted to develop a product that could be easily despatched and assembled by anyone anywhere.  But, true to form, it had to look amazing, be hard wearing and meet their exacting sustainable standards.

And so the product was born.  Made from recyclable tubular steel, plywood and linoleum Flatmate is available in a delicious array of colours to suit any environment.  Available in 2 sizes and with the option of adding a drawer and cable tray, the team made best use of their isolation by trialling the product themselves in their own homes.

Once it had passed their tyre kicking, the next challenge was to ensure that the assembly was easy as ABC and that the packaging allowed safe and easy shipping.

“We have always had the ambition to design and make furniture that isn’t pigeonholed into one environmental setting,” says Richard Gann, Rawside Founder & Director.

“With Flatmate we feel we’ve done just that.  We know that the landscape of working has fundamentally changed and we want to support that by bringing products to market that people will love wherever they put them.

“We’re so proud of how our team have adapted and risen to the challenges of 2020 – they’ve been really remarkable and we know that lots of other businesses feel the same and want to reward their colleagues by giving them the tools they need to work from anywhere – we believe flatmate is a perfect part of that toolkit.”
