As people are becoming more aware of the harmful health effects of sitting too long at work, people are looking for alternative solutions and one popular one is the standing desk. Standing desks however are expensive, costing from $600 to $100 and taking up a lot of space in the office and at home. In response to the lack of options, many independent innovators are attempting to create cheaper, portable, and effective standing desks.
I’ve seen many interesting, solid solutions to the standing desk (from Lift Top’s Sit-Stand, the minimalistic Altostand, and the StandStand), but when it comes to true ease and portability, none of them had really nailed it, until I saw the new design of LEVIT8 on Kickstarter.
The LEVIT8 is stain-proof and slimmer than a Macbook Air, but carries 20x more than its own weight. It’s origami inspired design allows the stand to be folded up into a slim book, making it easy to carry around with you and store. There are no multiple parts or unnecessary assembly at all.
It’s appeal is evident as they had reached their target of $4,000 in only 2 days and have currently surpassed their goal 13x over.
Their fundraiser ends this Friday, so show your support for this truly innovative design!
