I constantly see articles about the health benefits of using a standing desk, but most home or work offices don’t have stand-up desks. Replacing or modifying your current desk is expensive – and what do you do if you find that a standing desk just isn’t for you? If you back this Kickstarter project for the chairigami Cardboard Standing Desk, you can have a strong, sturdy, completely recyclable standing desk for only $85.00 ($70.00, if you grab one of the last early-bird pledges). Chairigami currently makes cardboard furniture, but it’s all custom-made by hand as it’s ordered, so it’s much more expensive than this factory-produced model will be. The desk is made of corrugated cardboard. It ships flat and assembles in just minutes. It weighs only 15 pounds, but it can support 300 pounds and should serve you for 2-3 years. It is designed for people 5’2″ to 6’2″. If you decide it’s not for you or it’s starting to show its wear, you can recycle the chairigami Standing Desk. The chairigami Cardboard Standing Desk is about 40% funded now; the funding period continues through Friday, April 11, 2014 at 10:00PM EDT. Shipping is expected in July and August of this year, should the funding goal be met.
