Eric, who lives in San Francisco, and Martin, from Quebec Canada, are two brothers working together to create something unique. Martin is a commercial airline pilot and Eric is a computer engineer. They both wanted to create a unique, easy to use retractable working surface that could be use in a multitude of applications.
An elegant and practical table they could also use in their respective daily life... so here it is after numerous prototypes and more than 5 years in the making!
They lost count on the number of prototypes, nights and designs they had to go through to get here. But that was fun.
They're really proud of their current product and they just want to get it out!
They need your help (CNC shops, Industrial Designers, Investors...)
Please call 415 488-5614 (USA) if you can help!
