Welcome to the new way to work.

Since our launch in October 2015, Altwork’s objective continues to be to redefine how your computer and workstation work with you, to support you in being more productive, comfortable, and healthy.

Our launch and Pre-Order Campaign have been extraordinary, exciting, and gratifying—in both early adopter orders placed and major international press coverage. Now, after more than five years of engineering and over $3M of founder and angel investment, we are poised to begin delivering the very first Altwork Stations in September 2016—the world’s first workstation designed for high-intensity computer users.

We invite you to experience the new way to work by purchasing your Altwork Station. Discover 540 color and finish options, a host of cool accessories, and a dynamic and revolutionary new way to spend time at your computer. Time to create, to grow, to inspire, and to contribute.

  • Four Key Positions

    Imagine your dream workspace.

    You would want to sit, stand, recline into a focus position for tackling your toughest work challenges, or even work in a zero gravity position—all while maintaining ergonomic integrity and being comfortable so you can be more productive.

    As engineers, designers, and technologists we believe your work can flow more freely when your computer moves with you throughout your work day.

  • Get in and get it done.

    Traditional desks and chairs treat you like an old typewriter. Everything in the modern workspace has evolved except for how you interface with your computer. Desks and chairs are essentially what they’ve always been, you conform to them, instead of them working with you.

    We’ve designed a better way.

  • Sit down or stand up.

    The Altwork Station features integrated pushbutton controls that deliver seamless, smooth interaction between your body and your computer. Studies show that changing positions throughout the day is better for us.

    Sit, stand, collaborate, or focus/recline—your choice.

  • Call a meeting at your Station.

    Whether sitting, standing, or collaborating with your team by swinging the screen so everyone can see, presentations are a breeze. It’s more than a desk, a chair, or a cubicle. It’s unlike any other workstation.

    Flexible. Mobile. Cool.

  • Glide in to reclined focus.

    The Altwork Station supports your body and your work by seamlessly conforming your keyboard, desk, mouse, and monitor to your body. This allows you to create a massive selection of working positions with your computer so you can work the right way for the right task. Our unique focus position allows high intensity computer users to eliminate the discomfort of standard tables and chairs so they can focus longer on complex tasks. It’s time to move beyond outmoded furniture and create a new way to work for digital professionals.

    From gentle recline to zero gravity.

  • Just How Dangerous Is Sitting All Day?

    Sitting down, which most of us do for at least eight hours each day, might be the worst thing we do for our health all day. We’ve been preaching the benefits of stand-up desks for a while around here — and no one needs this good news more than... More
  • 7 Things That Kill Your Productivity At Work

    “Cubicles have been called ‘monolithic insanity’ by the man who invented them, and we’ve only relatively recently seen a shift to alternatives,” Ross says. “They are great for maximizing office space, but cubes are not known for being particularly... More
  • Standing Desks Are on the Rise

    A 2010 study by the American Cancer Society found that women who sat more than six hours a day were 37% more likely to die prematurely than women who sat for less than three hours, while the early-death rate for men was 18% higher. The American College... More

Engineers. Designers. Artists. Creatives.

Altwork is the new way to work.

Altwork is a team of experienced technology professionals, long-time friends, and family who’ve worked on everything from building the world’s fastest recumbent bicycle, to security software used by the US Government, to Burning Man art cars. We’ve created and built successful companies, applying for and winning multiple patents in the process. Basically, we like tough challenges with a side-order of fun and family.

  • We work at tables and sit on chairs just as we have for hundreds of years. Shapes have changed; not much else has. In our new digital world, sitting, standing, working and the relationship to our computers and the innovative process needs reimagining. Our bodies and minds need a new connection that allows us to work the long hours it takes to create the future. Working differently will allow us to think differently. Altwork is taking us there.

  • After trying out the $5,900 Altwork Station, one thought immediately comes to mind: boycott work until you're issued one of these babies.

  • I have never seen anything like this except when I was 7 and watching StarTrek. This is really cool.
