“Things of quality have no fear of time.”
Standsome – the key to a healthy work- and lifestyle. You are totally convinced? The Standsome Crafted is even more capable: it overshoots the mark. It is a standingdesk for serious wood lovers. A real masterpiece, truly special. The star of the Standsome family. The Standsome Crafted is manufactured in small-batch production. Handcrafted. In Germany. Each step is chosen with care and follows the vision: high-quality wood harmony, sustainable from the root to the top. Light poplar wood instead of birch wood and extraordinary workmanship. Unlimited lifeblood. The Crafted Edition is laser-cut in German joineries and is characterised by a lasered logo and the writing “As long as you stand, stand by me.”. Customizable, of course! Standsome Crafted – the standingdesk for those who are not satisfied with the status quo and strive for perfection.
What matters for the Standsome is the right standing, both externally and internally: It not only strengthens the back of its users and helps them to achieve a healthy posture, but also shows backbone through all phases of production. Thanks to this approach, Standsome was nominated for the German Sustainability Award 2021 in the category Design. Our strengths: work health, resources and fairness!
Why wood of poplars? The poplar is a genius, a jack of all trades, a wonder of nature. It grows fast. Every 10 to 12 years its natural cycle is renewed. Every hour it removes 70 to 140 litres of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and releases the same amount of oxygen. Poplars distil water, absorb it, clean it. That’s not it: the cultivation of poplars reduces the deforestation of natural forests and satisfies the increasing global demand for wood at the same time. Just around the corner, in Italy!
Let’s get to the material of the Standsome Crafted: Appears trivial? Let us tell you: It isn’t. The choice is conscious. Poplar plywood inside, birch outside. 95% poplar, 5% birch. Nine layers in total. Scratch-resistant. Just the best parts of the tree, delicate wooden planks – also called the “filet of the tree”. Carefully placed and glued. Fibres set in longitudinal direction. Each plank with individual characteristics, each Standsome Crafted with a very special character: Textures, knotholes and different colorations. Simply genuine wood.
The Standsome also consists of lifeblood. It is circulating, it is pulsing. There is life in the Standsome. Passion. Courage. Spirit of discovery. Many hours of hard work. Much has changed from the idea to today’s Standsome. It has developed, grown and outgrown itself. It is not a box or a package anymore. It is an adjustable standing desk. And yet, it all started with this one. The Standsome Crafted embodies the dreams of the founding team. It is the starting point for the whole Standsome family, the flagship and role model.

Good ingredients don’t make a good cook. Neither do great materials make a great product. What is missing? The correct and competent treatment. The cook weighs ingredients, mixes and roasts them. He flavours and spices the dish. The Standsome team lasers, grinds and lacquers. It touches and feels EVERY Standsome Crafted, holds it in its hands, checks surfaces and edges. Corrects and optimizes. Every millimeter. With passion.
A bundled beam of light hits a wooden board. Bright and precise. The light beam separates the wood in seconds. Burr-free edges and small corner radii. The wooden board assumes shape. It maintains the characteristic shape of the Standsome Crafted: Light wood. Lightly browned edges. Did you know which wood is particularly suitable for laser cutting? Woods with a low density and low resin content. In other words: poplar plywood!
Who thinks that the Standsome Crafted is finished after the lasering thinks wrong. The shape is ready, yes! But the wood is still rough and grippy. No option. Therefore the team is sanding the boards until surface and edges are smooth and silky. Soft and delicate. Rough sanding. Fine sanding. Control sanding. Sometimes by hand, sometimes by machine – as required. Grain sizes and dispersion of the grains are selected by experts. Splinters excluded.
What use would a standing desk be if it wasn’t equipped for everyday use? A coffee cup leaves a stain. A glass tips over. It rains through the open window. Anything can happen. However, that’s not a problem at all! That’s because the Standsome Crafted is lacquered. Matt and clear. In other words: The wood structure remains recognizable. Still, every board can be wiped with a damp cloth without damaging the wood. Later, because the makers of the Standsome are perfectionists, it’s time for another sanding. Another lacquering. And so on.
A crucial detail: the precious laser treatment that makes every Standsome Crafted unique. First of all, the Standsome logo, a registered trademark, underlines the quality of each Standsome Crafted. Moreover, the writing “As long as you stand, stand by me.” reminds us, with a wink of the eye, to get up – cannot be said often enough. But that’s not all! You are unique. That’s why your Standsome should be too! You can individualize a model of the Standsome Crafted-Edition with a laser engraving in accordance to your ideas. Whether lettering or logo; your Standsome will be just like you: remarkable. Individual. Irreplaceable.
