Becoming Basalt: The Footless Monitor Stand

Becoming Basalt: The Footless Monitor Stand

At Beflo, we are constantly striving to redefine the concept of a home office. We believe that your workspace should be a place of inspiration, productivity, and harmony. 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. 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 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.

Overcoming difficulty

It goes without saying, simply placing a monitor stand on a desk is a little more straight forward than what Basalt sets out to do. Creating Basalt was a challenge that required creative thinking and a deep understanding of our Tenon desk's structural features. While our desk was designed with modularity in mind, a fully integrated monitor stand 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, only the rear part of the frame allows for an attachment to work in tandem with the desktop slot to provide a stable solution, it worked out. 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, 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 desktop cords but also allows power and connector cords to pass through its base. This ensures that you always have a full charge without compromising your workspace's clean and elegant look.

Whether you're viewing your desk from the front or the back, Basalt ensures a clutter-free environment. Its sleek design harmonizes with the overall aesthetic of the Tenon desk, creating a workspace that exudes sophistication and professionalism.

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. Basalt is just one example of our commitment to redefining your home office experience. Stay tuned for more updates on Basalt and other exciting developments.
