Numerous studies have repeatedly shown objective and clearcut benefits to using standing desks, from mitigating upper back and neck pain by over 50% to lessening the likelihood of heart disease to increasing productivity to burning off around 250 calories for every hour standing. And while it’s common for modern standing desks to be fairly exorbitant in price, one company is offering a clever and more accessibly-priced alternative to traditional standing desks that still yields all the benefits of its more expensive counterparts.
Called the Storkstand, the product works by hooking onto the front of a chair and using gravity/its own weight and a unique arm design to keep in place. Made from Forest Stewardship Council-certified natural wood and paired with aluminum hardware, this modular work from home essential can support up to 50lbs of weight. Only 2.5” thick, the 20” x 16” x 2.5” desk surface can accommodate laptops up to 17” while still leaving room for an external mouse. Compatible with more than 90% of existing office chairs on the market, the Storkstand converts from a chair-supported standing desk to a lap desk in a matter of seconds. Offered in black or white, the Storkstand Standing Desk + Lap Desk is currently available for purchase on Huckberry for $149.
