About Freedesk Desk Riser

Everything started with a question: Why are we sitting down so much?

The Freedesk Desk Riser saga started several years ago when the founder, Stefan Westergård, heard about the sitting disease for the first time. The insight of knowing the benefits of working while standing planted a seed in Stefan’s mind, a seed that would later would develop into Freedesk Desk Riser.

Stefan started off by, simply, putting a chair on a desk and by using the padding of the chair he turned it into a height-adjustable work space surface, perfect to place a computer on. He developed the prototype by adding a big, flat, wooden tablet on the chair pad, and voilà – the Freedesk Desk Riser was born; a flat work space that is easy to lift and easy to move.

From being a loose idea – a chair on a table – the Freedesk Desk Riser has developed into being a fully commercialized product, ready to be shipped around the world. We are still struggling when trying to explain it in just a short sentence. Thankfully, the product pretty much speaks for itself. The Freedesk Desk Riser has been built on the core values of craftsmanship and availability, and we are proud to say – It is now ready to help people achive a more active and healthier life!

The Freedesk Desk Riser has been developed, refined and constructed in the southern parts of Sweden. While the core team is located in Malmö and Lund, the product has been developed in collaboration with people from all around Sweden.
