This desk was made for Ben Chestnut: Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of MailChimp. Ben requested only three things: a detachable clipboard that he could use for hands free reading at his desk, but also carry to meetings as needed, a pencil groove (remember elementary school desks?), and casters so his desk could roll around. In collaboration with Industrial Designer Jordan Waller, we made those things happen. Jordan designed and fabricated all steel components.
