StorkStand is a collapsible, lightweight structure that can transform any seat into a mobile workstation.
Developed by San Francisco-based Mike Goldberg and a team of engineers, designers, and artists, StorkStand is a collapsible and lightweight structure that one can easily attach to their office chair, or almost any chair for that matter, to turn it into a standing desk.
Sitting for too long can be detrimental to one’s health. It can lead to bad posture, low productivity, increased risk of heart failure, and has been found to be linked to a number of related conditions like high blood pressure, high blood sugar, abnormal cholesterol levels, among others. One of the simplest solutions to this issue is to get up and stand for a few minutes.
That’s where the StorkStand comes in. The mobile standing desk transforms any chair to a standing desk and allows the user to be mobile even for just a few minutes and experience a boost of energy that can help them be just a tad bit more productive and focused on work.
StorkStand can be attached to a chair and allow users to work while standing. They can situate their mobile standing desk anywhere they want – in a quiet corner, near the copy machine, or next to a window so they can have a great view while working. The mobile standing desk can also be used as a podium during presentations. The StorkStand can be adjusted to three different desktop angles, depending on what the user needs.
StorkStand weighs only 4.2 pounds, making it easy to carry around and is perfect for people who are on the go. Users can simply bring it anywhere they go by carrying it under their arm, inside their bag if it’s big enough, or inside the StorkStand carry-bag.
Since StorkStand is collapsible, it can be stored easily on a shelf or under the desk. The structure folds down to a 17″ x 15.5″ x 2.25″ rectangle and includes a velcro strap that serves as a storage strap or additional strength when securing the structure to a chair. A StorkStand can support up to 50 lbs of weight as long as the weight of any item placed on the desk is evenly distributed.
The Kickstarter campaign has just ended, but the StorkStand will be available for pre-order shortly, according to their website.
