Becoming Basalt: The Footless Monitor Stand

Becoming Basalt: The Footless Monitor Stand

At Beflo, we are constantly testing the benefits of a standing desk in a home office room. With our Grovemade desk shelf, we redefine the concept of a home office space. We believe that your workspace, whether it's a room or just a corner, should be a place of inspiration and productivity. A standing desk can help improve your work experience, and adding a Grovemade desk shelf can enhance the harmony of your space. Many people find these additions beneficial to their overall well-being. As industrial designers with a passion for innovation and aesthetics, we're excited to offer you a sneak peek behind the scenes of one of our ongoing projects - the Basalt monitor stand.

From Problem to Innovation

Our journey towards creating Basalt began with a simple observation - the crevice in our Tenon desk's desktop slot. We noticed that this crevice was the perfect size for a stationary monitor to fit in. That's when we decided to design the Basalt with an ergotron lx arm, allowing users to easily mount their monitors on the side of the desk. With Basalt, you can have multiple monitors set up without taking up valuable desk space. While designed to be able to fit many standard clamp-style monitor arms, we realized that placing a regular monitor stand on top of this grovemade desk shelf slot didn't quite fit our vision of a clutter-free, minimalist workspace. This realization ignited our desire to transform this slot into something extraordinary - a foundation for a custom-made monitor stand that seamlessly integrates with your desk. The ergotron lx stands provide excellent support for monitors.

Overcoming difficulty

It goes without saying that simply placing an Ergotron LX monitor stand on a desk is a little more straightforward than what Basalt sets out to do with its range of monitors and mounts. Creating Basalt was a challenge that required creative thinking and a deep understanding of our Tenon desk's structural features, including the mount for the Ergotron LX and the height adjustment for the stationary monitor. While our desk was designed with modularity in mind, a fully integrated monitor stand, like the Ergotron LX mount, wasn't something we even considered.

Our passion for innovation drove us to find a solution that seamlessly integrates Basalt into the desk using what modularity systems we had to work with. With a stroke of luck, the Ergotron LX allows for attachment of single or dual monitors to the rear part of the frame. This stable solution works in tandem with the desktop slot. Maybe Basalt was just meant to be.

A Truly Unique Solution

Basalt isn't just another monitor stand; it's a revolutionary addition to your workspace. What sets Basalt apart is its ability to mount directly to the desk frame while discreetly passing the cords through the desktop. This groundbreaking design eliminates the need for bulky, unattractive bases that take up valuable desk space.

Imagine a workspace where your monitor appears to float effortlessly above your desk, supported by Ergotron LX stands and arms, with no wires or clutter in sight. Basalt makes this vision a reality. It's engineered to blend seamlessly with the Tenon desk utilizing its desktop slot, creating an unbroken flow of aesthetics and functionality, well in line with other accessories such as Mica, our wireless charger which also calls the crevice its home. 

Sleek from Every Angle

We understand the importance of maintaining a tidy workspace. Basalt not only hides monitor cords but also allows power and connector cords to pass through its base. The lx monitor stands are designed to accommodate monitors of various inches and can be easily adjusted with monitor arms. This ensures that your desk always maintains its clean and elegant look with the help of LX monitor arms and monitor stands, while also providing you with a full charge.

Whether you're viewing your desk from the front or the back, Basalt monitor stands and LX monitor arms ensure a clutter-free environment for your inches. Its sleek design harmonizes with the overall aesthetic of the Tenon desk, creating a workspace that exudes sophistication and professionalism. The addition of monitor stands and monitor arms further enhances the functionality and versatility of the workspace.

Coming Soon

We're excited to announce that Basalt is currently under development and is expected to be available within the next 6 months. This innovative monitor stand is poised to revolutionize the way you view and interact with your Tenon workspace, taking your home office to new heights of elegance and functionality.

Innovation, minimalism, and a clutter-free environment are at the heart of our mission at Beflo. We offer a range of desk accessories, including monitor stands and monitor arms, to help you create a more organized and efficient workspace. Basalt is just one example of our commitment to redefining your home office experience with our innovative desk, monitor stands, and monitor arms.
