375 Workmate

Black & Decker

The Black & Decker Workmate brand stands for dependability and practicality, but the workbench required some revitalization in order to appeal to those desiring a more user-friendly experience. This design exercise lead to the development of a handful of notable features, including a mechanism for simple one-handed folding and deployment, as well as the introduction of wheels for easy transport. Working closely with the manufacturer helped to birth the product in a short time frame and maintain a low price point.
