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.
Ergonomic chairs, standing desks, adjustable desks, treadmill desks: If the past decade is any indication, the most comfortable and healthy way to work still eludes us. Sonoma-based startup Altwork hopes to have cracked the code, debuting a fully mobile workstation now available for preorder that moves your computer with you, instead of making you conform to it.
For the longest time ever, and even until today, desks were made for sitting down at. However today with a lot of emphasis placed on health, some users and offices have begun introducing standing desks. These desks are basically desks that are positioned high enough where the user has to stand in order to work.
There are standing desks and treadmill desks for people who like to be active while they work. But what if you want to lie down while you work?
Standing desks are all the rage in modern offices these days, thanks in large part to plenty of research that claims sitting all day is detrimental to your long-term health. And you canspend a lot of money finding the right one — take the just-announced Altwork Station that goes up for pre-order today for $3,900. It’s a tremendous amount of money, but the Altwork Station is far more than your average adjustable standing desk

We’re all aware that sitting too much at work is bad for our health. But what about reclining? You can’t go wrong with reclining, right?
This week, the new startup Altwork dropped its first product, the Altwork Station, which will allow you to sit, stand, or lie down while you work. The Signature Station, as seen below, will cost early adopters $4,900 before the price goes up another G. There is also a Standard Station for $3,900, but you have to make so many sacrifices regarding upholstery choices that I won’t even consider it a viable option.
