About

The ZStand is a sleek, modern, sitting, laying or standing desk. It’s the perfect marriage of style and functionality. It can adapt to anyone’s posture, instantly becoming your trusty assistant. Whether you’re watching an instructional video at home, or need a mobile desk at the office, the ZStand is the solution for you. 

All ZStand models are ergonomically designed, made from all 100% recycled materials, and are totally effortless to setup or take down. The ZStand’s carefully crafted base provides maximum stability.

The patented ZBone & locking knob is the basic building block of the ZStand. Think an Erector Set for computers, tablets, projectors, scanners, lights and other accessories. All easily connected with the patented Unibody Locking System.

 We've all heard that sitting for too long day after day can be detrimental.

It's not enough to create a great product anymore, you have to always be thinking of ways to innovate. So we've already drawn up plans for the next ZStand to include a motor and sensor to follow you around your home or office.

Risks and challenges

ZStand is a passion project of mine that I've tried to get off the ground since 2011. I want to see this vision through because there's really nothing else like it on the market. I've launched two unsuccessful Kickstarter campaigns despite raising over $24,000 and $39,000 in each one due to a lack of marketing experience and the high cost of materials.

I went back to the drawing board to create more cost-effective methods, I think I've done so while improving the ZStand. Much of the time between campaigns was spent conceptualizing other variations of the ZStand. I came up with 4 additional models to complement the All-Star and the All-Star Pro which further serves to showcase the versatility of our product. I also hired a marketing agency that's helped me every step of the way.

Right now there's very little risk going forward, I've taken that part of the equation out by shoring up the manufacturing process. These babies are made and housed here in sunny Southern California so I can go and oversee their construction anytime I want. All that's left is to do is validate the concept with a successful campaign!
