I’ve decided to KICK off a new feature on the blog where draw some attention to great projects on the renowned crowdfunding platform. The first lucky project is from the duo of Kyle Hoff and Alex O’Dell who will definitely be bringing us ‘The Floyd Leg’
A successful campaign, so to speak, their Kickstarter campaign has managed to peak the attention of 902 supports, pledging over $155,000, obliterating their $18,000 goal.
The simple idea of an F-clamp attachment on a set of legs means you can make a table out of your door, surfboard, flatscreen television (Pong 2k14?) or any salvaged material you can strum up from the alleyway.
I think this is the perfect example of a great Kickstarter candidate. The idea is simple enough, with an obvious appeal to a huge audience. I think it seems like it would be economical to manufacture ($18000 and it’s a go!) and in turn people with no construction skills can have a versatile and vibrant custom table.
I also love the fact that they included some design sketches. Glorious graph paper.
You can check out some gorgeous photos of the product clamping various surfaces in the Floyd Catalogue and be sure to take notes on how to support a killer campaign while you’re at it.
