About

Pretty much everyone has a laptop, some of us even use a laptop as our main computer. We know it's unhealthy, yet we still hunch over low, bulky desks, getting by with stacked books and cardboard boxes.

Now you can get the benefits of sit-to-stand with your laptop in a beautifully designed ZDesk. While most affordable sit-stand desks look like a woodworking project or industrial equipment, the ZDesk is an elegant piece of furniture that you can be proud to show off.

There are no hand-cranks, buttons or heavy pieces to lift. An internal gas spring offsets the weight of the desktop, gliding effortlessly as you transition from sitting to standing.

Beyond laptops

The desktop can be tilted up to 30 degrees, perfect for tablets, art boards and canvasses.

The edge guards are removable for unobtrusive horizontal usage

Easily transportable

Weighing only 12 pounds, the desk easily disassembles into a few pieces for travel or storage

Timeline

Development

The ZDesk is the culmination of months of work and over a dozen prototypes

Risks and challenges

The final production prototype has been completed, and most of the manufacturing equipment is already in my shop. With the kickstarter funds I would like to purchase a CNC mill, which will enable me to quickly machine ZDesk components.

I have personally created the ZDesk prototypes, and control every aspect of its manufacture. I will minimize risks whenever possible and maintain open and honest communication with my backers.
