Lift desk transforms when it's time to take a stand

If the amount of crowdfunding being thrown at standing desks is anything to go by, it won't be long before the office chair goes the way of the typewriter. Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration, but they are certainly gaining in popularity due to the apparent health benefits of not spending all day on our butts. The latest standing desk to tower over its Kickstarter goal within days of launching is Lift, a stylish wooden unit designed to improve posture and productivity. Read More

Universal Bike – one frame to fit them all

One of the hassles involved in buying a bicycle is determining what frame size you should get. The size that works with one make and model isn't always the best choice for another, plus you might sometimes find that your particular measurements put you "between" sizes. Additionally, even if you get the frame dimensions right, you may discover that components such as the handlebar stem are too long or short. New York City-based Brooklyness wants to address that situation, with its one-size-for-everyone adjustable Universal Bike.Read More

StandDesk lets you choose to remain sitting or try standing

As we have recently witnessed here on Gizmag, there's a new push underway to make standing desks more affordable. Prices north of US$1,000 mean standing desks haven't been available to mainstream consumers, but prices between $100 and $500 make them a more palatable option for the general public. The latest piece of furniture to fit this mold is StandDesk, which is not only relatively affordable but also adjustable between heights suitable for sitting and standing. It offers users the best of both worlds. Read More

Get a grip in the wind with the GRIP2 Umbrella

The basic umbrella design is one that has stood the test of time. And why not, it’s simple and it keeps you dry. But once the wind picks up, the limitations of the design quickly become apparent. Fighting to keep the canopy facing into the wind to prevent it turning inside out by gripping the shaft as high up as possible is the standard approach, but keeping a firm hold on the thin shaft can be a pain. That’s why Dan O’Donnell invented the sliding handle-equipped GRIP2 Umbrella.Read More

XTable: A height-adjustable workstation for those who like both sitting and standing

It's a positive thing that we're all different; that humanity isn't made up of automatons who all have the same wants, needs, and desires. Unfortunately while each of us can furnish our homes in whichever way we see fit, the same isn't true of our places of work. Those who work in offices generally have to make do with whatever furniture is provided, even if it doesn't suit their individual needs. Providing options is therefore a good strategy, and XTable from Holmris offers nothing but options.Read More
