No back-ache with MyStandesk

Interior design
MyStandesk is a low-budget solution for those wishing to work while standing up, produced and sold by a Warsaw family firm.

Using MyStandesk prevents hunching allowing the user to place the screen and keyboard at eye and hand-level.

The recycled cardboard construction is also easily flattened and folded away.

The idea for MyStandesk came to me during lockdown when my wife and I were forced to work from home. We don't have the luxury of height regulated desks so we thought a cheap practical solution would be best to replace a pile of books. We also realised that many people and in particular those with back problems, prefer to stand up when they work, which is also not so easy to organise at home. There is also the problem of video conferencing. We are difinitely doing a lot more of it than before the pandemic and making sure the camera is set up at the right angle is often a problem.
Mark Twomey, the co-creator of My Standesk

This is the first product Mark and his wife have produced to sell online. It is produced and distributed in Warsaw.
