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.


What are the dimensions and weight?

Here’s a drawing of Oristand’s dimensions to see if it will fit your setup (Spoiler Alert: It probably will.).

A single Oristand weighs 2 lbs (0.9 kg)

Can I put my monitor on it?

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.

Is it wide enough for my keyboard and mouse?

The keyboard area measures 10” x 21” (25.5 cm x 53.5 cm). Although it can fit a full size keyboard, we recommend using a compact keyboard so your mouse has more wiggle room.

What height does this work for?

Our stand up desk is best suited for people 5’ (152 cm) to 6’ (183 cm) tall, based on an average table height of 29” (73 cm).

How do I set it up?

Watch our video (at 00:20 onwards) to see the best place to hold your stand up desk for easy opening and closing.

The sides of the stand should have a subtle inward fold when fully assembled. This fold makes Ori strong and stable. It also initiates the folding process when closing the stand.

You can always push the sides back in if they pop out. Once in place, they will remain where they belong and you can keep folding and unfolding your stand up desk without any problems.

If you have any trouble email us at customerservice@oristand.co with a photo of your Oristand and we’ll help you out!

What if I spill coffee or water on it?

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.

How long will it last?

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.
