There’s a trend emerging where companies get standing desks (like the X-Table, instead of regular workstations where people just sit. The idea is that sitting for long periods is bad… but standing for a whole day also sounds like it would suck a lot. So the Standing Task Chair is attempting to bridge the gap. It keeps you upright, but includes supports for your knees as well as your posterior, which ends up placing you in an allegedly optimal position for extended work periods. The reasoning is that your weight is distributed between your feet, your knees and your butt, so no one body part ends up carrying you all by itself.
The STC has an adjustable seat, and comes in a metal or oak finish, and costs $499 and $599 respectively. It’s seeking funding on Kickstarter, but it’s quite far from its goal at the moment.
