Most of us already know the many benefits of standing desks, but buying new office furniture can get expensive. These standing desks by Refold are an ideal solution, as they’re lightweight and portable, so they can be assembled in just a few seconds and then tucked away when no longer in use. Refold desks are 100 percent recyclable, weigh just 6.5 kg (14 lbs), and fold up into a self-contained carry case. Additionally, as cardboard is an ideal drawing/painting surface, you can customize your desk with whatever unique designs will inspire you during your work day. Since manufacturing items locally is far more sustainable than shipping around the world, this New Zealand-based company will be manufacturing their desk in the USA for American Kickstarter campaign supporters. They’ve already doubled their Kickstarter goal, but you can order your own standing desk now.
