👋🏻 Welcome to Grouphunt    Learn how it works!

 

Oristand is there when you need it and folds flat when you don't. Finally, a stand up desk that's good for your back, your wallet & our planet.

We're running this hunt because Oristand does not ship individually to Singapore and thus we're grouphunting this to save some $ on the shipping. It would cost siginificantly more if you tried to do it yourself. We need 17 orders minimum for this hunt to work so share this with all your office colleagues and join the hunt! Please also note for this run we will only be offering Oristand in black. 

SIMPLE  

No screws. No assembly. No instructions needed. Ori's simplicity is the result of a lengthy design process focused on getting you all of the functionality with none of the fuss.

FLEXIBLE 

Ori was designed to keep you and your workspace as flexible as possible. We've made sure to accommodate a wide range of laptops, people, keyboards and desks.

AFFORDABLE

Industrial grade cardboard is light, strong and affordable. Not to mention it is 100% recyclable. Meaning you can save some cash and we can save some trees.

Why Use a Standing Desk?

If you must work at a desk, science shows standing is healthier than sitting. Sitting shortens your muscles and tendons, compresses your spine and doesn’t promote movement. On the other hand, using a standing desk puts your spine in a stable position, allows you to stretch your muscles, and encourages you to move more throughout your day. The chair is a great tool for resting, but prolonged sitting causes dysfunction in your body.

Benefits of Standing Desks

Burn More Calories

Simply standing up at your desk causes you to burn 2-3 times more calories than sitting. And here’s the bonus: standing makes you move more during the day and moving burns calories!

Enhance Productivity

Working in pain or discomfort isn’t productive. Studies show that integrating standing desks into the work environment not only boosts human spirit, it lifts productivity and the bottom line.

Relieve Back Pain

Standing is better for your back, period. Creating healthy habits is critical to maintaining a healthy spine as you age. The more you sit at your desk, the more compressed your discs become.

How much weight can it support?

Oristand has been designed to support the weight of any laptop and keyboard providing you use it on a flat and level surface. Oristand can withstand average weights of around 60 lbs (27 kgs). Use your discretion and do what feels most comfortable to you!

Can I put my computer monitor on it?

Yes! While we designed this first iteration with a laptop and wireless keyboard in mind, we’ve had many customers happily use Oristand with a monitor on the top tier. Use your discretion and do what feels most comfortable to you. The Oristand can withstand average weights of around 60 lbs (27 kgs), although we don’t recommend all-in-one iMac monitors.

We are looking into future products with iMac set-ups in mind. 

How much does it weigh?

A single Oristand weighs 2 lbs (0.9 kg)

Is it wide enough for my keyboard and mouse?

The overall keyboard area measures 10” x 21” (25.5 cm x 53.5 cm) and works exceptionally well when using a compact keyboard and mouse, or compact keyboard with trackpad.

However, there has been incredible demand for different options, so stay tuned for more product launches that suit a variety of needs! Sign-up here to get notified of future product releases.

What height does this work for?

Oristand was designed to promote a healthy standing position where your neck, arms and wrists are not strained.  Our stand generally works for people from 5’ (152 cm) to 6’ (183 cm) tall based on an average table height of 29” (73 cm). 

Durability

What happens if I spill coffee or water on it?

That depends on how fast your reflexes are….! Oristand is made of uncoated cardboard to keep it environmentally friendly and affordable. If a spill does occur, wipe it off quickly, then let the cardboard dry completely before using it again.  There may be a wrinkle and a stain, but once it’s dry it will regain most of its strength.  If the wrinkle and stain are too much to bear, you can always exercise your creative side and paint it, wallpaper it, or give the stand to someone with a great sticker collection.

Can I recycle it?

Yes, Oristand is 100% recyclable.  The cardboard is non-coated so it can be placed in any cardboard recycling program.

Will it break down over time?

Oristand has been designed to stay strong for a very long time, just like your favourite cardboard box. However, it is a paper product, so edges can get bruised and scratches and dents are possible.  Leaving a heavy object on it for a long time may cause some sagging, but under normal daily use you can expect your Oristand to last for a long time.

    i'm sorry the truth hurts. but you are fully entitled to your believes and how you spend your money. it just looks exactly like the carton boxes i used to stack up to make my own standing desk at my office. That's why i have a reaction to this kickstarter item. the thing about kickstarter items is that some of them are quite scammy. that's what i think.

  • Hi. Any updates pls

  • Hi, I'm interested in this! Checked out their website, seems like it's USD 282 for shipping (per pack of 20) and USD 400 for 20. So basically if we can get 20 orders, we each pay USD 34.1 = SGD 47.5, which is actually cheaper than the Amazon US price. What do yall think?

    hey coffee less swet! we're in touch with them but they have reminded us that orders in packs of 20 are in one colour only ie. no mixing and matching for a pack of 20. which would mean we would need at least 20 orders of each colour to be able to purchas

    Any update on this? The oristand now ships internationally. I believe it's $282 for a pack of 20 to Singapore. http://oristand.co/international-shipping-estimates/
