The Gaze desk sets its sights beyond other standing desks

The unnatural requirement for most office-bound workers to sit for eight hours a day is not only an exercise in boredom but unhealthy to boot. Not being active enough throughout the day because reports need to be typed up and emails need to be replied to is harmful to one’s health in a myriad of ways, something that has prompted many inventors and small companies to remedy the situation.

From wearables to standing desk, every team has a solution. The GAZELAB team’s? Its Gaze Desk, a connected standing desk with a few tricks up its sleeve. For one, both of its sections — front and back — can be independently controlled so that the monitor and keyboard are at different heights, something that helps avoid awkward and sometimes painful positioning of the elbow and neck. This all happens automatically after inputting height and weight into the Gaze Desk’s companion app so that it calculates the optimal height for itself.


Folding, kneeling Edge Desk embraces the cutting edge of ergonomics anywhere

More than 6070% of people will experience some form of light to severe back pain in their lives, brought on by many screens used in daily life along with poor seating solutions. This adds up to uncomfortable days, lost time at work, and possible complications later in life.

The importance of proper posture is what led the team to combine the idea of a kneeling chair and desk to create the Edge Desk. When folded down, it’s less than six inches tall for maximum stowage. The real magic happens when it’s unfolded, though. Its single-piece aluminum construction features a minimally styled, white desktop with thick, padded seating designed in a such way to promote optimal posture and help concentration.
