The Move Stand Standing Desk is a new product from Movement In Depth out of Sherwood Park, Canada being launched with Kickstarter. This is a very capable sit-stand desk converter that fits in a laptop bag when you are ready to move. It can easily handle a large variety of body sizes and laptop heights. This is a different design from many other desks that makes it a little less portable and a little more steady than most. It also results in a far better reliability than many other portable standing desks due to its metal-on-metal connections.

It’s primary drawback is in its look and feel as a user. For users who assemble it at a setting other than the top it has an odd feel due to the high walls. The plywood does have a great texture on the exterior surfaces, making use of the new designer plywood laminate layering technique. The inconsistency of the laminate use does detract somewhat from it’s look, including on the side cut-outs.

When it’s time to move with you Move Stand, disassembly is straightforward. An allen wrench is provided with the desk and you just unscrew the bolts to take it apart. It is designed in such a way that the bolts twist in to a threaded adapter inside the plywood, allowing you to assemble and disassemble over and over.

Setting Up The Desk

Setting up the desk is really easy. There is a hex key / allen wrench included with the product that you use to wind 6 metal bolts in to place. I start with the bottom support cross piece and then move to the deeper top. The only consideration is to not let it collapse while you are setting it up.
