According to historical records, Leonardo da Vinci was at it centuries ago – painting the Mona Lisa whilst standing at his easel and designing flying machines at a stand up desk.

During the 18th and 19th centuries too, standing desks were very much in vogue.  Back then, standing at your desk was regarded as the means of working with the highest degree of productivity, and was even considered a sign of intellectual prowess and wealth. 

Over the years, standing desk advocates have included such luminaries as Napoleon, Jefferson, Dickens and Churchill and now there is a groundswell of modern medical thinking that endorses the importance of taking a similar stand. (See what we did there?)
