Pith & Stem, Hertfordshire-based sustainable furniture makers, today launch DropTop.™: the world’s first fully-integrated, plug-and-play, wall-mounted workstation – marking one year since the UK first entered lockdown.
Beautifully designed using sustainable materials, DropTop.™ was created in response to three key ways in which our lives have changed since 23 March 2020:
- We are spending more time than ever working from home
- We are all relearning what it means to be productive
- We are seeking a healthy work-life balance more than ever.
DropTop.™ is an easy-to-install, customisable workstation for productive, efficient and comfortable home-working. Comprising a pair of sleek, smart panels, it folds away easily and discretely at the end of the day. DropTop.™ looks to the future where hybrid working is the norm. It’s there when you need it, and out of sight when you don’t.
The unit is practical (ergonomically designed to promote healthy posture), strong (constructed using the toughest grade hardwood ply, with custom-made hinges), sustainable (made with FSC® certified birch plywood) and stylish (with customisable colours and finishes – you can even add your own favourite photos or artwork to the face).
Built with DisplayLink® technology, DropTop.™ is compatible across all major operating systems. It also features single cable USB charging connectivity and comes plug-and-play ready with energy rated A, flicker-free, LowBlue mode and full-HD monitors.
Sustainability sits at the heart of Pith & Stem. For every DropTop.™ sold, Pith & Stem plants ten trees through its partner Tree Nation – a global non-profit focused on afforestation, agroforestry and reforestation.
“Working from home comes with many environmental, social and economic benefits,” said Stefan Husanu, Pith & Stem CEO and DropTop.™ designer. “Nonetheless, many people have come to dislike it over the past year, even though it was once their dream! Factors behind this include it being uncomfortable, the lack of correct tools or workspace, and the inability to find that work-life balance. We can’t let these be an obstacle to something that has such a positive environmental impact, however. That’s why we created a home-working solution that fits every space and makes productivity fun, comfortable and stylish.”
Our world has fundamentally changed over the last twelve months in ways that are likely to long outlast the coronavirus pandemic, from hybrid working patterns to climate consciousness. DropTop.™ was built to match this changing world, becoming a future-fit, go-to solution for conscious citizens working at home.
