Over the past two years, we’ve become true believers in the standing desk movement. We love to stand while working because it makes us feel better, more alert, fresher at the end of the day, and more productive. But like many professionals today, we found ourselves using our laptops in varied environments: home office on Tuesday, kitchen on Saturday morning, coffee shop Wednesday afternoon, office on Friday.
So we shopped for a standing desk that would fit our mobile work lifestyles. The criteria was simple; a standing desk with the ability to quickly put our laptops at a comfortable height and stand anywhere we chose to work. And when we were done working, to stow it away or transport it with zero hassle. Oh, and it needed to look cool!
What we found was complexity. Expensive, permanent desks that bound us to one workspace and bulky, intrusive, overly adjustable contraptions that had far more features that we needed. That’s how X-Stand™ was born; with a goal of delivering what we demanded in a mobile standing desk, but no more.
After multiple iterations we loved a minimalist approach most: two 12″ x 12″ pieces, providing the two right heights. The two-paneled bamboo design slots together to create a sturdy work surface and allows the X-Stand™ to set up and break down in seconds to create a standing desk anywhere you want to work. There is no adjustment needed to choose your comfortable height, simply flip it 90 degrees.
