About this project
Studies show that sitting at work for extended periods of time can lead to severe health issues and decline in overall productivity. Standing, for just thirty minutes each day, has been proven to combat these health concerns and boost energy levels and concentration during and after the workday.
Our goal is to make standing at work as affordable and accessible as possible by offering a beautiful, mobile solution for under $200.
StorkStand's portable design encourages people to take full advantage of their office or home workspace. At just 4.2 LBS, StorkStand is a perfect solution for people who are on the go and can be easily transported anywhere. Collapse StorkStand to carry under your arm or throw in your beautiful StorkStand carry-bag. Whether you're at the office or on the road, a healthy, mobile workstation is always at your fingertips.
Because StorkStand securely attaches to your office chair, it easily becomes a sturdy podium for those important presentations or a mobile workstation, perfect for any office or home. We all deserve a window view, right?
The StorkStand's unique design is collapsible and easily stores under your desk or on a shelf. The entire product folds into a sleek 17" x 15.5" x 2.25" rectangle. A durable velcro strap provides additional strength when attaching to any chair and serves as a perfect storage strap when StorkStand is not in use.
We know you'll be trusting StorkStand to securely support your laptop and other valuable items, so we've made every desk as sturdy as possible. Each StorkStand can support up to 50 LBS by evenly distributing the weight of any item placed on the desktop over the center of your chair. The triangular design, rigid desk lip and durable strap work together to provide an extremely strong and lasting hold.
We realize that everyone uses a different chair in their office or home workspace. That's why we've worked tirelessly to ensure that StorkStand attaches to as many different models and types of office chairs as possible. Whether you have an ergonomic task chair or a leather executive chair, we are confident that StorkStand will work for you.
NOTE: Although StorkStand works perfectly with over 90% of office chairs, we recognize that some chairs are naturally more sturdy than others. Therefore, there is a small number of chairs that will not work perfectly with StorkStand. If you have any questions about your specific chair, we have included more information about suitable chairs in the FAQs section below.
Adjustable: StorkStand is easily adjustable to three different desktop angles. Choose the angle that is most comfortable and efficient for you or try different angles throughout the day.
Standing desks are expensive! The majority of standing desks on the market today retail for well over a thousand dollars, a hefty price tag for being healthy at work. Not to mention the lengthy application process and doctor's recommendation that many companies require from their employees.
We've built StorkStand to be the most affordable standing desk of its kind, putting the choice to stand in the individual's hands.
Healthy. Mobile. Affordable.
We've gone through a lengthy design and prototyping process to make sure our product is both beautiful and sturdy. From start to finish, we have maintained a dedication to nothing but the highest-quality parts and materials.
StorkStand was designed in San Francisco, and we are committed to manufacturing and assembling the majority of this high-quality product in the United States.
With your help, we can take StorkStand from prototype to reality. If we achieve our goal, here's what the next few months look like for the StorkStand Team.

Risks and challenges
The StorkStand Team has gone through an extensive development and prototyping process to ensure that we are able to efficiently deliver a product of the highest quality to our backers.
In the past year we have received in-depth feedback from more than one hundred industry experts and beta testers throughout the entire development process. We have visited and qualified multiple local manufacturers for each product component. Final components will be delivered to a U.S. assembly facility for final quality assurance and assembling, to ensure that we are able to deliver the final product to our backers in a timely manner.
All materials have been pre-selected and quotes for tooling and manufacturing are in-hand. The manufacturers with whom we have partnered have been vetted for quality output and adherence to our production timeline.
While we have very carefully planned out the costs of raw materials, tooling, labor, and shipping, we are well-aware that there can be unforeseen events that adversely affect production. The development and manufacturing of a hardware product is a detailed and challenging task, even for the most experienced. However, our team has extensive experience with manufacturing, supply chain management, logistics, and fulfillment with hardware products. All costs have been carefully detailed and calculated.
We have done our best to minimize risks and are confident that you will receive your StorkStand in a timely manner. Our goal is to help as many people we can to lead healthier lives, and we realize that we cannot achieve this if we cannot deliver on our promise to our backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
