Oristand – the affordable solution for your workplace

I had to share this, cause I think it’s a great idea. Tired of sitting behind your desk? Would you like occasionally to do work standing up? Motorized desks are not that expensive, but if your workplace needs to buy them in tens it will be come costly.

Well Oristand is the affordable solution for this. A lightweight yet strong foldable cardboard box makes this all possible.

The five pack Oristand is only $100 and for that price you would have got only one motorized desk. So buy yours here.
