The landscape of education and remote working has undergone a significant transformation. The convergence of a burgeoning home-based workforce and a growing emphasis on physical activity in schools has spurred an extraordinary surge in demand for innovative solutions. One visionary entrepreneur from Clitheroe, Nick White, has been at the forefront of this transformative movement.

Nick White's Vision

Nick White embarked on his entrepreneurial journey when he founded "I Want A Standing Desk" in February 2014. This endeavour was born from a serendipitous conversation in a local coffee shop that ignited a brilliant idea. Stepping away from the world of commercial property, Nick channelled his energies into designing standing desks tailored for adults. It didn't take long for him to recognise an unmet need in the market—a standing desk designed specifically for children.

EIGER Student Standing Desks

Nick's brainchild, the EIGER Student standing desk, has rapidly gained popularity and made its mark in more than 400 primary schools across the United Kingdom. Its wide-reaching benefits have become increasingly evident, particularly for students with conditions such as ADHD and neurodiverse disorders.

A Shift Towards Home Workspaces

The onset of lockdowns and remote work mandates during the pandemic compelled a surge in home-based employment. This shift, however, led to a sedentary lifestyle for many individuals, often without access to proper ergonomic desks and chairs. The consequence? A rise in back pain and related health issues.

Enter the EIGER Pro standing desk—an elegant solution to this newfound challenge. Over the past 12 months, this innovation has garnered an impressive number of orders as people seek to enhance their home workspaces.

Schools Embrace Active Learning

While the demand from remote workers is notable, Nick White's proudest achievement lies in the education sector. Schools across the country have increasingly recognised the advantages of active learning, particularly for students with diverse needs.

Benefits Beyond Imagination

The impact of EIGER standing desks in educational settings has been profound. Schools that have integrated these desks into their classrooms consistently report improvements in various aspects of student life. These include enhanced behaviour, heightened concentration, increased engagement levels, neater handwriting, and improved productivity. Moreover, the desks encourage physical activity, which has a positive impact on the health and well-being of students. Most importantly, children thoroughly enjoy using them.

A Commitment to Sustainability

EIGER standing desks are not just revolutionary; they are also eco-friendly. Crafted in the United Kingdom from durable and sustainable birch plywood, these desks can be effortlessly placed atop existing surfaces and conveniently folded away when not in use. Many primary schools in Lancashire have not only trialled but also fully embraced these desks, making them a part of daily classroom life. Local organisations, including Lancashire County Council, Silverwoods Waste Management, and Fresh Perspective Recruitment, have also recognised their value and invested in EIGER standing desks for their employees.

A Vision for the Future

Nick White takes great pride in the fact that "EIGER standing desks" is the leading educational standing desk company in the United Kingdom. Looking ahead, his vision extends beyond national borders. He plans to further consolidate his success in the UK while actively pursuing retail opportunities in Europe and beyond.

Nick White's journey with EIGER standing desks is a testament to the power of innovative thinking and the profound impact it can have on both education and the modern workplace. With a commitment to improving lives and fostering a healthier, more productive society, "EIGER standing desks" is poised to continue making waves in the global arena.
