Standing desks are becoming one of the biggest design and health trends this year, and now one start-up has even come up with a way to make them from foldable cardboard.

"Refold" is a desk made from 100 percent recycled cardboard which can be folded up into a carry case and easily carried anywhere.

Made from 7mm thick kraft card, it weighs only 6.5 kg but can support the weight of a person.

According to Refold, the piece can be assembled in two minutes by simply slotting the various components together.

The desk, which can also be configured into a "sitting" position, comes in three different sizes to suit people of all heights.

Refold is currently listed on crowdfunding website Kickstarter and can be pre-ordered from $145 NZD (approximately $113 USD).

Refold joins the ranks of innovative active furniture concepts unveiled recently, alongside "StandDesk" which became an instant online hit and was funded by Kickstarter users in just 38 minutes, and the "Stir Kinetic", dubbed the "Rolls Royce" of standing desks, launched late last year.
