Teenage Engineering’s New $1,599 Field Desk


Teenage Engineering’s new Field Desk costs just as much as you’d expect and then a little bit more.

Teenage Engineering – makers of high-end synths like the OP-1 Field & the budget Pocket Operator series – has introduced the Field Desk, “the official workspace of teenage engineering.” A simple-looking piece of minimalist flatpack studio furniture, but it’s also designed to be part of a modular work environment that somehow manages to cost $1,599/£1,599.

The Field Desk is the first product of Teenage Engineering’s new open-ended field rail system, an ongoing project that’s based on interconnecting rails that can be used to build your own furniture and accessories. All rails and clamps are produced by Scandinavian manufacturer Hydro using their engineering-grade, 75% recycled aluminium.

Field Desk is made from double-sided formica birch plywood. The idea here is that, if the surface gets worn and you fancy freshening things up, you can just turn it over.


The Field Desk doesn’t come with any drawers but, can be combined with accessories, like a custom storage tray and tape holder (available soon), or you can latch on your own creations using m5 screws.

And, it would also be the perfect platform for your OP-1 Field ($1,999), TX-6 mini mixer ($1,199), Field Notebook ($12) and Field Bottle ($29).

They say:

“field desk is made from only what’s needed and nothing it doesn’t. all rails and clamps are produced by Scandinavian manufacturer Hydro, using their engineering grade, 75% recycled aluminium.

the desktop is crafted from double-sided formica birch plywood, so if the surface appears worn over time, it can be turned over for a fresh look. lightweight and modular, field desk arrives flat-packed to build in place, simple to assemble and disassemble.”

This system allows Teenage Engineering to offer custom-engineered interior solutions for professional workspaces.
