Understands aims to bring organization to your desk life, all while focusing on sustainable options to make it happen. They utilize salvaged wood from local fallen trees to create desk stands packed with drawers for convenient storage and/or elevating your computer monitor. Their latest, The Planet 6, houses six visible drawers (plus two secret ones) to stash your office supplies, smartphones, iPad Mini, external hard drives, and even things like your passport, checkbook, and money you want to keep safe.
The desk stand is finely handcrafted using hand-cut dovetail joinery with careful attention paid to the woodgrain which continues across the front drawer handles.
The drawers are lined with cork to reduce sliding.
They incorporated two spots to prop up smartphones for easy viewing. A slot on the back allows the base of an iMac to slide in so it can be raised up for optimal viewing and there’s room underneath to hide an Apple Magic Keyboard.
