STAN the standing desk is Twikit’s proof of concept that 3d printing technologies can be sustainably applied to the furniture market. STAN is a laser cut, made-to-measure standing desk that consumers can fully customize via Twikit’s configurator software. It’s portable and easy to assemble, making it ideal for today’s remote workers or Agile offices that work with standing meetings.
STAN’s model means 2 things for modern manufacturing,
1) The end of a push economy where backstock builds up in warehouses – instead it could be replaced by a pull economy where products are made on-demand only when needed
2) A sustainable model where customized products are made locally, instead of being manufactured across the globe and shipped, creating significant financial and environmental transport costs.
