About this project
As we end our successful campaign we wanted all of you to be able to shop for a StällDesk directly.
Take a stand against sitting.
Two thousand hours. That’s how much the average worker toils away annually sitting at a desk. 80 full days where you sit and make money, yet your body pays the price. Your spine contorts into a question mark. You run a serious risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other health issues. Sitting is a pain in the neck—literally. Don’t just sit there: Let’s take a stand for better posture and better overall health. Let’s get more energy and productivity by integrating StällDesk for a more active workday. A smarter desk; that's something we can all stand behind.
StällDesk is the eco-friendly stand-up desk that works for you—so you can do more productive work. Lightweight for easy mobility and storage with LEEDS-Certified appleply. Strong enough for a lifetime of durability. Sized right to push back on your desk when it's not needed.
Goodbye fatigue, back strain, and neck pain. Hello, better posture and better productivity with StällDesk. (Health Benefits)
Think about how you lean toward your screen all day. You likely won’t notice it as you work. At the end of the day, your neck will. Let’s end squinting and turtle-necking. Let’s see a monitor high up and close enough to end these habits. So, we looked up and down for an affordable standing desk that took our standards for ergonomics into account, but we didn't find one. So we designed our desk from scratch. Then we tested. We tested our tests. Then we made a standing desk designed around our bodies natural alignment to rejuvenate an entire industry. We made a standing desk worth investing in.
StällDesk was designed for you—and your wallet.
Most standing desks strive for greater posture and less pain. The difference here is that our inexpensive model accounts for back and neck alignment and comfortably sits on top of your current workspace. Most people work on laptops these days, so we've made it tall enough keep your laptop in eyes-reach.
Founder's Elevator Pitch
The StällDesk is designed to take up less depth than a standard desk, so you can slide it back when you don't need it. Perfect for you to pop open your laptop for a few minutes. It measures 25" wide x 24" high x 20" deep.
Change to any position that makes you active throughout your workday. Simply slide the shelf into the lower slot and you’re ready to work. Place it back on top for a comfy and aligned standing position.
Want to go flat? StällDesk has a flat shelf right below the angled shelf. It's also positioned lower to accommodate taller monitors, while keeping your eye level intact.
Our material qualifies as a LEEDS-Certified building material. It's made with eco-friendly glues that don't have any noxious smells or off-gassing. This furniture grade wood boasts strength, beauty and very few air pockets. We're using custom runs of prime grade, natural walnut and maple as a top layer. Each desk has a UV coating that protects your desk from sun-fading, and provides a strong top-coat.
Match your office decor with three different natural woods types to choose from:
Who needs screws? Assemble your easy fitting StällDesk within a minute without any additional hardware. Disassembly is just as easy.
By using plywood instead of solid wood, we could utilize more negative space for a see-through desk and light weight design. You can see through StällDesk at most angles, providing less visual impact. No more confined cubicle effect.
Strong doesn't mean heavy.
The 17-ply construction grade of Appleply makes this lighter and stronger than solid wood, pound for pound.
All-American grit and gumption.
Each and every StällDesk is manufactured in Denver, Colorado with the understanding that the highest quality means, and stays, here in the USA. We closely watch every step of the manufacturing process: because we are the ones doing it ! We guarantee it.

Meet the Creator
Hi, I’m Mike, the creator of Stall Desk. Health and wellness has always been a passion of mine, and it led me to create RAD, and ZEN, businesses that serve an important place in keeping your body and mind healthy and vibrant. RAD works to tear down the walls of bad posture and muscular tension, and ZEN allows you to meditate in comfort. However, this being the real world, I work on a laptop most days.
It’s no secret that necessity is the mother of invention, and Stall Desk is no different. I wanted a workspace that wouldn’t be a burden to my back and neck……But immediately I saw that most designs had some critical failures; they didn’t account for keeping your neck aligned, and the monitor was typically too far from your sight. Big ergonomic no-no’s. Most designs that take ergonomics seriously are wildly expensive.
I’m a product guy at heart. I love making designs that are simple and impactful on your health, and this isn’t our first rodeo. We’re manufacturing these in house on our high-end equipment. I’ve assembled a small team to make sure that your desk is delivered on-time and ready to rock~~~er, stand.
We sit so much of our lives, but it’s my hope that you’ll help us change that pattern. Stand and deliver my friends!
Risks and challenges
We want to instill confidence in you. Both from an engineering and design perspective we wanted people to have confidence in answering the question: Why should I back StällDesk ? Money raised from this campaign will allow us to purchase our manufacturing materials in bulk and upgrade our tooling so we can bring Ställ Desk to the market. We have done this in much smaller batches and we are 110% confident in our ability to execute on our mission and our vision and deliver to you the best, most affordable, eco-friendly, ergonomic standing desk on the market. As far as actual challenges the only one that we see in the near term is our packaging and shipping strategy. Although the StällDesk is light...only 11 lbs., it does require a die cut box and certain shipping requirements to arrive safely to your door. We have been proactive in seeking a reputable 3rd party shipping manufacturer to help us overcome this challenge.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
