It’s that time of year again: the long summer daze is drawing to a close, and fall is on the horizon. For many, that’s a signal it’s time to start looking forward and planning ahead for another school year. Whether you’re learning remotely or in-person this year, here are the tools to help set you up for success.
A sturdy-yet-flexible workspace
With customizable options and eco-friendly durable bamboo material, the FlexiSpot offers so much more than the standard desk to students (and anyone else) who would otherwise spend endless stretches of time just sitting down. The desktop is moisture-proof, scratch-proof and stain-proof and its height easily adjustable so you can find the best fit for you. The maker, FlexiSpot, has 20 years of experience in ergonomics (the science of improving comfort and efficiency in a workspace), and the Kana Bamboo Standing Desk’s intelligent design speaks to it.
