      History

      In the fall of 2013, the Gaming Throne concept was inspired from a Father's love for his son. Sean Fairburn, an Emmy award winning cinematographer and innovator, was working with his teenage son, Caleb, while designing the now patented 3D Mutiplates, utility tools for mounting cameras and monitors.
      Sean noticed that after prolonged hours of work, Caleb would become extremely uncomfortable, and inefficient while sitting at his desk. He would constantly need to stretch his neck, back, arms and hands just to get comfortable and re-focus on the task. What Caleb needed, was a working environment that was comfortable enough for long term support.
      Sean didn't want to see Caleb suffer at the computer, so he put the Multiplate project on hold, and redirected their work to making Caleb more comfortable in everything he did. As a team, they began to research and design a new creative environment that would be better for both Sean and Caleb to work in together, and the Gaming Throne was born. Solving many of the problems we face sitting at a desk and chair, Gaming Thrones are collaboration furniture unlike anything else.
