Sitting at a desk all day is bad for us.


We know it, and lots of people have proven it. One of the best ways to improve your health is to work at a standing desk. However, many of the options on the market are bulky, expensive, ugly, or a combination of all three.


The UpStanding Desk was created to address those issues.  





Our desk sits on top of your existing work surface and the height is fully customizable to fit your body and workspace. It's made from five pieces of precision-cut furniture-grade Baltic Birch plywood and sanded to a satiny finish. It fits together seamlessly without any fasteners and can be assembled and disassembled in just a few minutes.  

Every aspect of the design has been carefully considered, from the smooth curved edges to the cord control slots and smartphone/tablet docks.  

We set out to make a beautiful, functional, and affordable standing desk that wouldn't require you to change your existing workspace. We believe that we succeeded, and we'd love to share the result with you.

For any questions or more information, please email and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
