Simply unfold the Oristand and you have the standing workstation you’ve been waiting for. No screws, no assembly, and no instructions needed. Take that Ikea! Our engineer calls it a genius solution to flat pack furniture. Us marketer’s call it Origami-inspired design. Either way, it’s a pretty bad-ass folding desk thing that makes it easy for you to switch between sitting and standing as you work. It packs away nice and slim too.
We all have our favourite desk setups. And because we live in the age of A.D.D. you probably change it between work and home, are we right? Add a consumerism problem into the mix and that’s a lot of devices to deal with. Lucky for you, we saw it coming and created a stand up desk as flexible as you are. Ori is designed to accommodate a wide range of monitors, laptops, keyboards, and desks in various setups.
Oristand is built on the idea that living healthier should be within reach of everyone and that switching to a stand up desk shouldn’t break the bank. We set out to create an affordable alternative to pricey standing desks and with the help of some industrial grade cardboard, we’re confident we’ve done it. Heck, it’s even cheaper than a visit to your chiropractor! Good for your back, good for your wallet and good for the planet too.
Yes! Lots of customers use Oristand with a monitor on the top tier.
Oristand’s stand up desk can hold up to 60 lbs (27 kgs) distributed across it’s two top surfaces. Laptops, larger monitors and keyboards work great, but we don’t recommend iMacs – they’re heavy and their weight is concentrated in one place
That said, If you’re the DIY hacker type and want to reinforce your Oristand for holding heavier objects, place a thin piece of wood or metal across the top surface. It helps distribute the weight evenly. This is outside of Oristand’s design/warranty, so do only what you’re comfortable with!
Note: ensure your Oristand is setup correctly – the sides should be folded slightly inward making it stable and strong.
If you spill something just wipe it off quickly, and 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, or give the stand up desk to someone with a great sticker collection.
We designed this stand up desk to stay strong for a very long time, however, it is a paper product, so edges can get bruised and scratches and dents are possible. Try to avoid leaning on it with your elbows or leaving a heavy object on it for a long time – it may cause some sagging. Under normal daily use you can expect your Oristand to last for a few years.

"I love my Oristand! And oddly, my colleagues who spent hundreds of dollars on metal, plastic and wood mechanical standing desks are jealous of my $29 folding cardboard desk.
We'll be ordering two more and I'll be sharing my happiness..."
"'Installed' my @oristand today. Lots of compliments and interest. I love that I can fold it away in 2 seconds! Great idea."
"Love it so far. It's exactly what I needed. My company was not willing to pay for a $300+ standing desk and I thought about creating my own somehow. Once I saw the Oristand, I didn't hesitate to buy it. It is very durable and sturdy enough to hold my monitor and keyboard and is the perfect height. It's also very portable, so if I decide I want to take it elsewhere, that will not be a problem. I'm very satisfied with my purchase and thanks for creating this product!"
“I love it! I tweeted about it after I got it set up and am so excited to have a lightweight, portable stand-up desk I can take when I travel as well as use at home.”
"Oristand seemed like an inexpensive and quick way to transform my less than perfect temporary office, into one that would suit my needs. I was a little wary at first and only purchased one. However, once it arrived and I saw how sturdy it was and how nice it looked, I immediately went back an bought the second. I now have the coolest desk in the office. People keep coming to see my space because word is out that I have a 'cardboard' desk. lol"
"The Oristand standup desk is crazy perfect! I love that it folds flat and can be stowed away at night. This is giving me an option to defy the status quo sit all day work space and for a fraction of what other desktop stand up desks cost!"
