Excuse us if we sound a bit like rabid fans in this post, but we are so, so into the creations of Heckler Design. Helmed by the brilliant Dean Heckler, these are the sorts of products that we've needed for a long, long time. More than just good-looking, his products are filling in the blanks and meeting the needs of consumers today--and we're loving every shiny, boldly-colored bit of it.
It all started with OneLessDesk. See, back when we had lots of paper to spread out or giant 1980s monitors...we needed huge, bulky, giant desks and tabletops. But with sleek laptops, monitors and keyboards that hardly look like they can work they're so small, the need for desks that take up your whole home office (and whole life) just aren't needed any more.
Following on the success of OneLessDesk, Dean listened to customer feedback and created products for other needs in the home office, like OneLessStand (for printers) and OneLessFile ("the last file drawer you will ever own"), all to create a streamlined office that fits today's needs. What else is super cool about him? He "gets" how things work today--for his idea of OneLessDrop, an innovative way to keep your power cords from slipping off your desks and tables, he enlisted the help of backers on the popular website Kickstarter to help figure out how to get this product off the ground (and showcase the behind-the-scenes production of his pieces).
We interviewed Dean about his background (surprising!), how he chose his innovative materials for his products and what's in store for us lucky consumers (you're going to want to hear about his upcoming ideas!):
