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.
Well, what did you think was going to happen? We’ve got the standing desk. We’ve got the regular old sitting desk. We’ve got the standing-while-leaning-backwards desk, and the bed-desk, and the chicken desk (not technically part of this trend, but still the best desk). Did you think there wasn’t going to be a desk where you lie down with your computer hanging over your face like the sword of Damocles? Come on. You know better than that.
Sitting all day isn’t good for you. Altwork has designed a new chair, similar to one you’d find in a dentist’s office, that allows you to lie down while you work, the U.K.’s Independent reports.
After trying out the $US5,900 ($8330) Altwork Station, one thought immediately comes to mind: boycott work until you’re issued one of these babies.
That’s the idea behind Sonoma County, California-based company Altwork, who wants to change the way we physically do computer work with the Altwork Station. The convertible workspace is designed to adjust to your level of comfort, whether that’s sitting, standing or completely reclining. Currently the products are available for pre-order, to arrive next year.
Sitting for long periods of time has been shown to be bad for your health, leading more and more people to adopt other positions for working at a computer. If you’ve always dreamed of being able to stand, sit, and lie down at the same workstation while post-processing mountains of photos, the new $5,900 Altwork Station is for you.
The £3,850 Altwork Station is designed to improve on standing and sitting desks by letting people work at their computers in a range of positions
