No parts. No assembly. Quickly transform any desk into a sit-stand desk. It has never been this easy or compact.
This current run has ended, but there are more recent runs for LEVIT8: The Flat Folding Portable Standing Desk. Click here to go to the most recent run.
LEVIT8 is a flat folding standing desk, with a twist (literally)!
LEVIT8 gives us the freedom of transforming any ordinary desk into a sit-stand desk anytime, anywhere, and quickly!
No parts, no assembly. It utilises an age-old box-twist folding technique. So with a simpletwist and fold, it flattens so you can easily tuck it away into our shelf or bag.
No refurnishing. No hefty price tags.
You now have a cool and affordable way to start off your journey towards a healthier (and more fun!) way of working.
LEVIT8 your laptop anytime, anywhere.
Do you, or someone you know often spend hours sitting and using their laptops?
An average person spends about 10 hours each day sitting. Studies have shown that sitting all day makes us less productive and might even shorten our lifespan by increasing the risk of certain diseases. Even among those who exercise regularly! They say it’s "the new smoking”. Many people are turning to standing desks, but standing all day is isn't the solution. Our bodies are just not built to be still, we’re built to move!
Movement is key, no matter how small. Just switching between sitting and standing positions goes a long way in combating the dangers of our largely sedentary lifestyle!
Why couldn’t we find a suitable sit-stand desk?
We wanted a hybrid sit-stand station that allowed us to seamlessly switch between sitting and standing. Something as portable as our laptops, since we use them everywhere.
But other portable standing desks available are either too expensive, bulky or troublesome.
So we created LEVIT8.
Who is LEVIT8 for?
Fuss Free. No parts. No assembly. This allows you to seamlessly switch between sitting and standing to stay rejuvenated and alert at work.
Simply open, cross, twist and you're set!
LEVIT8 is made of a single loop of 8 triangular panels which gives it its easily collapsible box-spiral folding mechanism!
Slim and lightweight for true portability and easy storage. LEVIT8 occupies minimal space. Slip it into your bag, shelf or laptop case (if you're using an S or M-sized LEVIT8)!
Lighter than a Macbook Air!
Ergonomic. LEVIT8 gives you the freedom to stand or sit when you’re tired or aching from staying in the same position for too long. By choosing the right height, LEVIT8 keeps your shoulders relaxed and elbows bent at 90 degrees that experts recommend. Laptops have an inherent ergonomic fault: the screen is next to the keyboard, so you always have to look down. But if you have a detached keyboard, LEVIT8 helps to raise the screen to eye level when you sit to type.
LEVIT8 is available in 3 sizes, to accommodate the majority of users.
Durable. Crafted from especially tough fabric that is water-repellent and stain-proof, LEVIT8 is hardy enough to follow you on all your adventures and survive your coffee spills!
...and stain-resistant! Accidentally spilled coffee? Don’t worry, just wipe it right off!
Stable and weight-bearing. LEVIT8 is more than able to support your larger, heavier laptops.
It holds more than 20 times its own weight!
Versatile. When you’re not using it to elevate your laptops, LEVIT8 has many other uses! Now it’s up to you to get creative!
Always keeping stray documents in your bag? Use LEVIT8 as a temporary folder!
Or as a magazine holder!
Or as a display holder to showcase your own designs!
Who are we?

The LEVIT8 Story - be part of it!
We went through numerous rounds of rigorous ideation, prototyping and iterations based on feedback from the local community, before chancing upon this age-old folding technique- the box-spiral fold. And who knew the solution could surface from origami? It resulted in something that was stable, easily collapsible and beautiful, through a single loop of 8 triangular panels.
Following material selection, we moved on to fine-tune every last detail. Inspired by the level of craftsmanship, durability and timelessness of the bookbinding technique, we sought help from local bookbinding experts and local crafters experienced in fabric, we crafted the our LEVIT8 right here in our school’s “basement”. What was surprising was how versatile it was as people suggested using it for storage (eg. magazines, charges, scarves), as a decorative item and to prop up other things like Launchpads for DJs!
So this is where you come in!
In order to make LEVIT8 a reality we need two things from you. We need you to back our campaign, but we also need you to take an active stance to promote a healthier way of working. The first step could be as small as standing up when you feel lethargic, or simply by telling a friend with a desk job that you’re concerned. LEVIT8 does not completely correct our posture, nor completely combat the dangers of sedentary living. But it’s a start (a fun one indeed!), specially catered for those on-the-go!
The making of LEVIT8 requires close attention to detail, which is why we are overseeing our own team of craftsmen in Singapore to produce the first 120 pieces. But with an indication of demand through pledges, we would be pushing LEVIT8 further for larger-scale production.
So it's your support that will fuel this campaign, so join in and make a pledge! We'll also be using funds raised from this campaign to finish the final round of pre-production prototypes, fund the first production run of LEVIT8 and cover travel expenses to a manufacturer overseas if we do go ahead with larger-scale production.
Join us, let's make this happen together.
How do I choose the right size for myself?
Desks and tables come in a standard size of 29 1/2", so you simply need to order the one that fits your height. Experts say it's best to keep your shoulders relaxed and elbows bent at 90 degrees.
