The original Mousedesk was designed and prototyped in late 2007. It was first shown in 2008 in Cleveland and then taken to ICFF in New York that same year.
The inspiration for the desk came from the many industrial desks found in factories, etc. beginning in the 1940's. Those desks had minimal features and functionality - simply put, they were made to be used and made to last. Our goal was to make a minimal desk with a simple style and lines - but extremely functional for modern users and modern spaces.
Madonna owns one - 'nuff said.
The Mouse File Cart was designed at the same time as the desk and with the same intentions - functional, simple and timeless. It is meant for hanging files in the bottom drawer, with no rods or tracks. The actual walls of the drawer are where you hang your file. The top drawer is the personal drawer and the cart fits perfectly under the desk for a clean, modern look.
