We've seen lots of standing desks here at Gizmag, including cheap and cheerful cardboard efforts, expensive automatic affairs, and even one that turns any office chair into a temporary compromise. And now we have a standing desk that doubles as a piece of modern art.

The standing desk in question is the descriptively titled Wall-Mounted Standing Desk. It's comprised of a wooden spine which is permanently attached to the wall, with grooves set into it at regular intervals. These grooves are used for the two shelves which turn it into a standing desk; a small shelf is set at head height for a laptop or tablet, with a larger shelf set at chest height for keyboard, mouse, and a beverage of your choice.

The shelves can be placed in whichever groove best suits the individual user, being temporary locked in place using a carriage bolt. When the standing desk is not being used, the shelves can be removed and stored out of sight. This leaves just the spine visible as a conversation starter, that the more creative among us would be able to describe as a piece of modern art.

The wooden spine measures 24 x 3 x 2.25 inches (61 x 7.6 x 5.7 cm), with the lower shelf measuring 23.5 x 15.5 in (59.7 x 39.4 cm) and the upper shelf measuring 11.5 x 15.5 in (29.2 x 39.4 cm).

The Wall-Mounted Standing Desk is available in light or dark wood, and is priced at $245. Drywall anchors and wood screws are provided for easy installation on a range of wall materials.

An interesting device, although not fully thought through.

Nice of them to offer ....'and a beverage of your choice'...option. It will be useful when we are all living in NWO cubicles in the near future.


Very, very interesting! There are some amazing health benefits of using a standing desk, I've found that the best balance is standing up for about 2 hours or so, and then sitting down for an hour or two for the best health benefits. I also use a standing desk chair as well.
