This Cheap Standing ‘Desk’ Is a Strange Solution For Stranger Times

Storkdesk’s portable standing desk is a exactly as it sounds — a portable desk that attaches to a chair so you can work while standing up.


As we continue our work from home lives, new brands continue cropping up offering solutions to problems that arise therein. How about this one: a cheap standing desk that isn’t really a desk.

Storkstand isn’t new (its Kickstarter campaign launched in 2014) but it’s making waves across the internet for the ingenious way it can convert an office chair into a standing desk. The portable desk is essentially a slab of wood with an aluminum fastener that hooks onto the the back of an office chair. The desk can support up to 50 pounds, and it’s large enough to fit up to a 17-inch laptop (plus a mouse). The original iteration of the Storkstand featured an elastic band to wrap around the chair, but the latest version uses tension to prevent the desk from tipping over. The brand claims the desk works with 90 percent of office chairs. If for some reason your chair falls into the 10 percent of incompatible chairs, the Storkstand works as a portable lap desk to keep your overheating computer off your lap (admittedly, this would be a bummer).

The Storkstand, available in black and white hardware, just hit Huckberry and is available for $149.
