The history of our origin

 

The best stories begin inconspicuously. Also the history of the Standsome. Actually, we only wanted to buy a stand-up desk stand for our employees. But it wasn’t that easy, because we only found cardboard boxes or rather unsightly constructions. So we – together with an aircraft engineer and a mechanical engineer – worked out the design ourselves. What looks simple is not so trivial. After six months, many designs and a mountain of wood shavings, the Standsome finally stood on our table. Hardly in use, it was already permanently occupied. And because our visitors were in love with us immediately, we produced supplies. And then again. And again.

 

That’s how it goes to this day. What started as a side project is now a small furniture company in Rüsselsheim and Mainz. We are diligent and work quite a lot, but because we (mostly) have fun with it, it’s not bad at all. Our team does almost everything itself: from conception to ordering and distribution. The production is carried out by carpenters and manufacturing companies in Germany, with whom we cooperate – everything else is made by Friedrich & Patriz.

Our Team

Leonard Beck

CEO

Our puppet master directs and coordinates everything. Although as managing director and founder he takes care of the long-term development of the company, he often has to take care of the “small stuff”: Accept deliveries, renovate, pack orders. That’s how it is in a start-up.

“Don´t look for mistakes, look for solutions.”
– Henry Ford

Bianca

Online Marketing

Our sweet tooth is responsible for our blog and Pinterest. 2 years ago she was one of the first to join our team. Since then she has greatly increased our readership through her extensive knowledge. However, it took her one and a half years to register her bachelor thesis on ‘Procrastination’.

“What you can uncork today, don’t put off until tomorrow.”

Nils

Sales Manager

Our Beer Pong Master is responsible for direct sales. With his charm, he wraps everyone he has on the line around his finger. Because Nils is passionate about dangerous sports, he has already had a few injuries. But that doesn’t stop him from telling you about the Standsome by phone.

“Don´t tell people your dreams, show them.”

Alisa

Online Marketing

Our Social Media Queen has been taking care of our Instagram and Facebook account since December 2018. Now we are more visible online because our appearance is more structured and consistent.
Although Alisa’s role is similar to that of a creative director, she often has to be the model.

“Count the memories not the calories.”

Stefanie

Digital Design

Our sunshine takes care of our homepage and designs advertisements.
In the office, there is never a bad mood, because she always gives us a smile.
She is the only one who still follows the shift plan that was created a year ago.

“The best view comes after the hardest climb.”

Timo

Sales Manager

Our talent for communication works diligently with Nils to lift the people in the offices of this world from their chairs. With him, Standsome is also well positioned for the Spanish-speaking market. Timo perfected his powers of persuasion during his time at the Debating Club Würzburg.

“Let’s be realistic and do the impossible.”

Jakob

Logistics

Our handyman makes sure that all orders arrive on time and well packed. He has been part of the Standsome team from the very beginning and took care of everything, hence his nickname. When you need two strong hands to get things done – you can always count on Jakob.

“The future depends on what you do today.”
– Mahatma Gandhi

Max

Logistics

Our puppy takes care of the shipping along with Jakob. Because he is still quite fresh in the team, he has to undergo Jakob’s training.
If you think you are a real series junkie, you don’t know Max yet. He has seen all seasons of the series “How I met Your Mother” at least seven times.

“Honesty doesn’t get you many friends,
but the right ones.”

Tatjana

Online Marketing

Our fitness junkie helps the social media and sales team. Although she has only recently joined our team, she has already settled in very well.
Besides her passion for weight training, her heart beats only for Sushi. At least three times a week she orders it or makes it herself.

“I learned to always take on things I’d never done before. Growth and comfort do not coexist.” 

Julie

Online Marketing

Our outdoor enthusiast is one of the youngest members of our team. She helps in online marketing, but also supports direct sales. A balanced lifestyle is very important to Julie. Just as much as she loves sports (yoga and horse riding), she loves to eat.

“The only joy in the world is to begin.” – Cesare Pavese

Julia

Assistant to CEO

Our word acrobat supports our managing director Leo in his everyday business, but also helps diligently in every other area. Her thesis is titled “About Nothing”. Why? So Julia can say that she writes about nothing when people ask her about it.

“Les gens disent : Tu rêves trop. Tu danses trop. Tu aimes trop. Les gents parlent trop.”
