A new sit-to-stand desk has today been launched on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter, cleverly called Perch it is looking to raise a total of $20,000 on the platform in order to get it into production.
The project has already broke and over-achieved this goal, with a total of over $97,000 thanks to the backing from around 360 backers at the time of writing.
The inventor of Perch explains more about the sit-to-stand desk :
I live a very active lifestyle, with a love for the outdoors and adventure. However, after graduating from college and picking up a 9 – 5 job, I found myself slipping away from this active lifestyle I loved and falling helplessly into a life of sitting.
I would sit on my commute to and from work, at the office, at lunch, at home on the couch, at dinner, and then back on the couch. My life was officially consumed by sitting. This left me feeling unfocused at work, tired throughout the day, and with pain and discomfort in my back.
I couldn’t take it anymore, so I began searching for a standing desk only to find that they were either too expensive or not easily adjustable from sitting to standing. So I decided to partner with some friends and we set out to make the ultimate sit-to-stand desk.
After 8 months of designing and testing we are excited to introduce, the Perch Sit-to-Stand desk, the most affordable and customizable sit-to-stand desk that makes switching from sitting to standing effortless.
