Matt Gereghty recently designed a compact standing desk that mounts directly to the wall. While there are a number of standing desks available to consumers, Gereghty's design is as stylish as it is ergonomic.

Gereghty's compact standing desk made its debut at the Interior Design Show in Toronto this past weekend. His desk stands out from similar products due to its minimalist design that adheres directly to the wall. The desk itself consists of a lower desktop surface that holds the mouse and keyboard at arm-height. This lower desk is connected to a upper desktop surface via a wooden spine that is attached to the wall. The upper area can then be adjusted to hold a laptop or tablet screen at eye-level.

The standing desk not only provides a discrete office workspace, but it also allows consumers to alternate between sitting and standing throughout the day.
