We have been very busy here in the Floyd Lab! We’re currently developing four new products (well three totally new products & one updated product)! Here are some pics of what we’ve been working on over the last couple months. We’ve got new legs, frames, prototypes, shapes, sizes, materials, and plenty of new ideas. Take […]
Ever since we launched with The Floyd Leg, we’ve been keen on avoiding the need for tools to assemble our products. It’s something we’ve long believed in, and for good reason. Tools can be a hassle – not everyone has tools at home, the tools included with products are often cheaply made and easy to […]
We got a couple of prototypes of the X-brace for the shelf fabricated at a local shop. After chatting with our main steel manufacturer, however, we realized we needed to simplify the design of the wires to reduce the number of pieces and amount of welding. We’re using some pink string we had in the […]
After testing our initial prototype using steel shelves that attach to wood verticals with threaded inserts and hand-fasteners, we’ve realized we need more strength. We’ve been looking at some wall hanging shelves that use a hook & slot system, so we had a shelf with some hooks prototyped and bought some off-the-shelf tracks with slots […]
Last winter, we set out to design a whole new Floyd product – the Floyd Side Table. Having launched the Floyd Table in November, we knew we could make an adaptation of the design into a side table, using birch plywood, steel legs with hand fasteners, and linoleum for the surface. Here are some of […]
We drilled threaded inserts into the bottom of our table top proto and started testing different hand knobs today to feel which give us enough torque while looking good and being comfortable to use.
