Get to Know Us

After spending several years traveling and consulting clients while sitting at uncomfortable desks or working long hours at home at the dining table, we realised there was a challenge we have to address. From the initial idea to the Kickstarter launch it has taken us 2 years - packed with user interviews, material research, supplier screenings and prototype assembly.

Our Story

Since the beginning of 2018 we, Finian - a passionate urban biker and social entrepreneur at heart - and Daniel - an industrial designer with a passion for sustainable products design - are collaborating to create a sustainable and portable standing desk solution. 

We spend on average 6 hours per day sitting at our desks. Especially during home-office times, people lack physical activity - resulting in all sorts of health issues. 

With hydesk we are helping you to reach your daily activity goal by offering a flexible stand-up desk solution. We’ve even designed it to fit into your backpack, suitcase or home office drawer.
