To the computer
Let us introduce you to our version of the "easy button.” Ready? Press and hold the up/down control button for 2 seconds and let go. The desk will automatically elevate/lower, completely hands-free. Once the desk reaches your desired height, just tap the up/down button again to stop the desk in place. It’s that simple.
Other standing desks require you to continually hold down the control button when raising/lowering your desk, or you have to use a manual crank. We wanted to add more simplicity in your life so you can focus on more important things.

The desk can lift up to 225 lbs. Okay, okay…it can actually lift more, but let’s keep things on the safe side.
We designed a customized motor - working with a supplier with over 20 years experience in motor design and manufacturing - that balances reliability, power, and price. Several other standing desk companies use two powerful motors, which have the lifting capacity over 400 lbs but cost you a fortune. There’s no point in paying extra for what you don’t need.
We lied. There’s actually NO maintenance required. As long as you use the desk as instructed, don’t worry about anything else.
A sleek and sexy way to manage all your essential power cords. We designed this optional "cable management tray" so you’d never have to worry about messy power cords dangling everywhere or worrying if your cords are long enough.
When you raise the desk, if your power cords are too short your devices could either unplug or drag your device off your desk. Both of which could cause damage to your precious monitor, ipad, iphone, or any other device you place on your desk.

Over the last several decades, scientists and medical researchers, including experts at NASA, have found that breaking up sitting with standing intermittently throughout the day is better for you than once a day exercise. Standing time contributes to improving your mind (productivity, creativity, & focus), mood (increases overall happiness, reduces depression & anxiety), and health (adds years to your life, contributes to weight loss, curbs many diseases, & reduces back pain).
The funds we obtain through the Kickstarter campaign will go towards purchasing tooling for production and increasing manufacturing efficiency.
We are really, truly excited about this project - and not just because we created it. StandDesk is more than just a product: it is a step in the right direction to change the lives of people everywhere, for the better. Supporting this project is an acknowledgment that we do indeed have a health problem in the US - but more than an acknowledgment, it is taking action to change our ways. For ourselves. For our children. For generations to come. And you can get a pretty sweet desk while you're at it ; )
You are our support system. You have the power to make it happen. So if you have any questions, concerns, or want to share any cool insights, message us! We are real people who would love to hear from you.
Risks and challenges
We started working our suppliers over a year ago rigorously testing their production capabilities, while meticulously testing the desk through several alpha and beta tests. We’ve been extremely fortunate to have positive results.
However, hardware is hard. Depending upon demand our delivery dates are at the mercy of unforeseen manufacturing issues and sometimes things out of our control, like natural disasters, potential power outages, nuclear war, etc. However, we’ve assembled a world-class team of manufacturing experts to keep everything on track, and we are confident we can reach our quality goals and deadlines.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
