Included this input in IC but it would be nice to see a few common 40s keys make it into the base kit (R3 1.25 tab being the big one). Hope some other 40s users could give some input as well, but that one key would be a help in fitting some popular 40s layouts and wouldn't likely be cost prohibitive

Is there going to be a international/northern layout addon?

Seems like a shame it's missing since the whole set is heavily influenced by Eero Saarinen, a Finnish American designer.

Nothing has changed here from my original answer in the Common Questions section:

I would love to support NorDe users, but itíll be challenging. Consider two of the biggest sets to date: GMK 9009 sold 1500 base kits and 55 NorDe kits, while GMK MoDo Light sold 3000 base kits and 100 NorDe kits. At a 3% attachment rate and a standard 250 MOQ, I would sell 7.5 kits.

That said, if youíre interested in NorDe, chime in on the IC Survey and I will definitely consider it.

Please respond to the IC survey if you'd like to see support!

I checked in on this IC after a while, and was happy to find that you've added DH as a Canadian vendor. Thank you! I'm very excited. I'm thinking this is going to be the most perfect set for the Soya U80A.

Really like the look, but would love to see more renders on a dark board to get a better impression on how it looks

Would it be possible to get a render of this with the Gentleman65?

I agree - I'd love to see more SOYA or e-beige options out there, and think Birch would pair perfectly with them.

I hear you, you're not the first to request something like this. Stay tuned!

Would it be possible to get a render of this with the Gentleman65?

I don't think I will request a render on that board, but do you have a specific color you'd like to see it paired with? I could ask for a render on a similar color, to give you an idea.

Mini-update for Birch:

Aluminum artisan design plans have changed, so I am working on updated designs. As a bonus, I will now include a reversed Eames chair (birch-on-blue) in the novelty kit.

Deskmats are nearly complete, and after that it's time for samples. I'm tweaking one render with the updated deskmat design, and will share that here when it's ready.

Three colors I never thought would go well together. Well done  :thumb:
