For those who are required to sit in front of a computer for many hours at a time, work could become much more comfortable.
We’ve been told for a few years now that sitting down at a desk all day could lead to an early grave, with plenty of body pain before that, too.
It may look a bit like a dentist’s chair, but this desk could change the way we work.
It lets users sit, stand or recline while working, with their computer and table perfectly positioned to let them concentrate on their job.
“I am a completely horizontal author,” Truman Capote told a Paris Review interviewer in 1957. “I can’t think unless I’m lying down, either in bed or stretched on a couch and with a cigarette and coffee handy.”
Standing desks are, like, so two years ago. Walking desks? Go to the gym instead. But working while you’re lying down? That’s the wave of the future, according to Geyserville entrepreneur Che Voigt.
Ever wanted to combine your dedication to work and getting things done with your passion for being really, really lazy?
Turns out lying down on the job might not be such a bad thing if you do it with this startup’s pricey desk. Take a standing desk, rotate it 90 degrees, and you’ll have the Altwork Station, a work desk that allows the user to lie in a completely horizontal position.
Lazy people, rejoice! If a treadmill desk seems like too much work, and a standing desk seems too uncomfortable, Altwork has a solution. Meet the only desk that lets workers sit, stand, recline, or lay down at the touch of a button.
Standing desks seem to be pretty popular these days. But if you’re someone who happens to be a bit on the lazy side, a desk that lets you lie down probably sounds a lot more appealing.
