The Standsome is an upgrade with a mission: to make everyone’s daily work healthier and more sustainable. It does this by transforming any conventional desk into an individually height-adjustable standing workstation. What matters is the correct posture, both externally and internally. A Standsome not only strengthens the backs of its users, but also enables them to stand up for what they believe in: achieving a healthy work lifestyle!
Occupational health is at the heart of our work. Standsome provides a preventive and lasting solution to the lack of daily exercise. It’s a product for everyone: affordable and made to share.
We have created a sustainable production line by carefully selecting our resources and designing our manufacturing process. However, engaging in sustainable entrepreneurship does not end with production, it also extends right to our customers’ doors.
The Standsome is made in North America and the production is transparent. We are a team of young people who grow every day with our tasks and with Standsome. The cooperation with tree planting organizations was initiated by real conviction!
Installed in seconds using the plug-in principle, a Standsome standing workstation offers stable work surfaces. It can easily be adapted to the perfect ergonomic standing position of any body size from 160-200cm (5.3′ – 6.7′) : The arms must be relaxed perpendicular to the work surface while vision is directed forward with the spine correctly aligned.
As an affordable solution to common height adjustable tables, anyone can work with a Standsome and maintain a healthy posture. In addition, the Standsome is based on the Sharing is Caring principle! Its flexibility allows several people to share a Standsome. If you want, even one Standsome is enough for five office workers!

Sky is the limit: maybe that’s our motto, but we also know that it can only work if the ozone layer in the sky remains intact. That’s why we do everything we can to make what we already do even better and to put new ideas into practice: avoiding waste, promoting sustainability and protecting the environment from further damage. In doing so, we pay attention to the most sustainable use of resources. We test, test and test until we have found the optimal solution for each product. This is the only way to achieve our goal of optimizing the present and the future.
The Standsome is made exclusively from FSC-certified plywood. We can consequently guarantee that the wood is obtained from trustworthy timber industries. The plywood used is very strong, elastic and flexible at the same time: ideally suited for further processing by craftsmen.
Custom-made cartons beyond the standard dimensions ensure that only as much cardboard is used as is absolutely necessary. Padding and packaging materials are reused, parcel tape made of paper is utilized and the parcels are shipped completely plastic free!
Thanks to FedEx EarthSmart commitment to environmental sustainability, the Standsome is shipped with the lowest negative impact possible on nature. Thus, we manage to combine e-commerce with sustainability.
The Standsome is made in owner-run craft businesses in North America. This local proximity allows us to encourage local craftmanship and personal exchange allows us to generate synergies and increase our know-how. In addition, not only do we aim to positively influence the working conditions of others, but we also rely on an innovative corporate structure.
Transparency in all areas has always been a top priority for us. The Standsome is manufactured in North America, from design to processing. All wages are paid directly in North America, and the same for taxes, logistics and fees. Nevertheless we can offer the Standsome at a fair and affordable price.
For example, the price of the Standsome includes 23% equipment and salaries and 25% taxes and fees. Another 16% stems from the wood, delivery and storage and another 21% is due to its processing. That leaves 7% for investments and product development, 6% for advertising and, of course, 2% per sold Standsome for reforestation and afforestation initiatives. We do our best to present everything about the Standsome in a clear and understandable way. In case there are any questions, our team will be happy to answer! Between milling machines, sawdust and paint cans it can get quite lonely in the long run. We love our customers and are happy to get to know them. See you soon!
With every Standsome sold we donate to selected non-profit organizations that plant trees in the backyard of the Americas. Our own backyard! North America has particularly suffered from centuries of unconscious human exploitation and behaviour. This had, and still has, a dramatic impact on the ecosystem, on natural protection against disasters and the economy.
For every purchase, we commit in planting a new tree where it is needed in North America. We support many restoration programs concentrating efforts where there is a need for reforestation and afforestation. This way we all help in cleaning our air, store carbon and release oxygen. Every Standsome sold means more forest and meaningful ecological actions.
