The UpStanding Desk
Furniture, Strategy, Entrepreneurship
Sitting at a desk all day is bad for us. We know it, and lots of people have proven it. One of the best ways to improve your health is to work at a standing desk. However, most of the options on the market are bulky, expensive, ugly, or a combination of all three. The UpStanding Desk was created to address those issues. The desk sits on top of user existing work surface and the height is fully customizable to fit user's body and workspace. It's made from five pieces of precision-cut Canadian Birch plywood and sanded to a satiny finish. It fits together seamlessly without any fasteners and can be assembled and disassembled in just a few minutes. Every aspect of the design has been carefully considered, from the smooth curved edges to the cord control slots and smartphone/tablet docks. We set out to make a beautiful, functional, and affordable standing desk that wouldn't require user to change their existing workspace. The UpStanding Desk.
We launched this project on Kickstarter. And we reached over 1000% of our goal.
