VARIDESK’s new height-adjustable Pro Desk 60 made its television debut last night on Season 3 of HBO’s hit series “Silicon Valley.” The Pro Desk 60 is a full-sized, sit-stand workstation that will outfit the new office headquarters of Pied Piper, the show’s title tech startup.
“Companies based in Silicon Valley are leaders in building active office environments, and at the core of those offices are sit-stand desk solutions like VARIDESK,” said Jason McCann, CEO of VARIDESK. “The majority of research shows that non-sedentary work environments can increase productivity, enhance collaboration, and help combat the list of health issues that stem from long hours of sitting. The active office movement is the standard for how all offices will be set up going forward. So, it is truly exciting to work with the Emmy Award-winning production team from Silicon Valley to help them best represent what it feels like to work at a high tech startup.”
The Pro Desk 60 features a large, 60-inch work surface to accommodate multiple monitors and extra hardware, and easily adjusts between nine different height settings in seconds. Like all VARIDESK models, the Pro Desk 60 works with a companion app that alerts users when it’s time to sit or stand throughout the workday. Research shows that spending all day in a static positon – sitting or standing – is detrimental to our health. A healthy workday incorporates a mixture of sitting, standing and movement. A non-sedentary work environment is linked to improved productivity, increased cognitive function, weight loss, alleviated back pain, and the reduced risk of chronic diseases.
Inspired by series creator Mike Judge’s experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the 80s, the award-winning HBO series “Silicon Valley” looks at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech gold rush, and the antics of the leaders and minds behind the booming, innovative tech scene.
