ViviStand is a new product being crowdfunded on Kickstarter.com that promises their customers that they will be “The world’s best sit/stand desk” available on the market once they launch.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, ViviStand started out two years ago with the goal of creating the best sit/stand desk available on today’s market. They began with the complaints about existing sit/stand desks, that they were too bulky and too noisy, with a motor clearly hanging underneath and sub-par construction which aimed to keep the weight down.
The ViviStand desk, on the other hand, is described as being “meticulously designed” so that it offers “visual simplicity and elegance” which still giving their customers stability, power, and longevity.
This desk will provide their customers with the ability to raise and lower the desk as they need, as well as to memorize two positions that the customer uses on a regular basis. They also offer their customers a motion sensor which will automatically turn on the lights and adjust their desk when they approach.
They also provide their customers with a hidden, built in power strip where customers can plug in their computers or any other necessary electronics, as well as under-desk hooks that will help customers hide all cables, retaining the clean look of their ViviStand desk.
Unfortunately this product is not yet available for sale on the open market at this time, as they are still in process of crowdfunding on their Kickstarter page. Customers can choose to order their ViviStand Duo 2 Legged desk for $749, which is a discount off their eventual retail value of $999, or they can order their ViviStand Quattro 4 Legged desk for $1,199, which is a discount off their eventual retail value of $1,599.
Regardless of which product you choose, the website says that their current estimated shipping date is May of 2017, though this date may change in the future.
Because this product is not yet actually being sold on the open market, they also do not appear to have any kind of published Refund Policy available for their customers at this time. Hopefully once their product actually begins being delivered to customers that participated in their crowdfunding campaign in the Spring of 2017, they will begin publishing these important policies, but until then customers will need to contact their Customer Service team with any questions they have regarding refunds.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by submitting them directly to them by using the Ask A Question link at the bottom of the Kickstarter page.
Because this company has not actually yet made this product available on the open market, there is no way to know how well it will fulfill all of the promises it has made to its consumers. That being said, sit/stand desks are already very popular and have been on the market for quite awhile, so it’s not hard to believe that ViviStand will have been able to make the improvements to this product that they claim they have, while still retaining the integrity of this product.
Competitors and Alternatives?
As mentioned above, there are many different sit/stand desks available on the market today, as well as a variety of products that are intended to provide their customers with the same functionality of a sit/stand desk but without the expense and bulk of purchasing an actual motorized desk, so customers who are looking for alternatives to this product will have many other options.
