5 Tips For Designing a Standing Workstation

1. Give yourself room to walk


While standing is often healthier than sitting, it's important to constantly move and change your position while working at a cardboard standing desk.  Make sure you've dedicated  open space around your standing desk, so you can easily transition to walking around the room and doing light stretching.  Carpets or yoga mats are better than hardwood floors because they encourage active balance and cushion weight load on your feet.

2. Choose a standing desk that's the right height 

Standing desks are most ergonomic when they match your height as well as the type of work you do.  For extended work hours on a laptop computer, your wrists will be most comfortable if your elbows are bent at ninety degrees. For work with physical materials or print, a lower desk may be more beneficial for easy reach and sightlines. Chairigami cardboard standing desks come in three heights (38", 42", and 44") so you can design your home workstation setup to be most comfortable for however you work.  

3. Prototype as you go

There's no right way to design your home office. It's important, epecially at the beginning, to try several configurations to find which is most conducive to your work style.  Test your cardboard standing desk near a window or move it center stage so you can work from either side.  Cardboard standing desks are so lightweight, it makes it easy to reconfigure and rearrange your space.   

4. Transition slowly 

Give yourself time to adjust. Your transition to working at a cardboard standing desk should be both gradual and intentional.  Stand an hour a day at the beginning and listen to your body as you increase standing time and which days you choose to work standing. 

5. Invest in an external keyboard and mouse 

Though laptops are mobile, they are not ideal for ergonomics.  Because screens are attached to keyboards, people compromise by excessively tilting their necks or bending their wrists.  Invest in an external key board and mouse so you can elevate your laptop on your cardboard standing desk.  We've even designed a cardboard laptop stand especially for this purpose.

Why Chairigami?

With a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Yale and a Masters from the Stanford Design Program, founder Zach Rotholz uses principles of structural origami to create cardboard furniture for all.  We proudly manufacture right here in America and all of our furniture is flatpacking and 100% recyclable.
