An 'Under-Desk' Hammock Now Exists For You To Enjoy Those Blissful Naps In Office

Manufactured by Uplift Desk, the hammock is designed to attach to the brand's standing desk, providing a sling for comfy hanging.

We all know how tiring and stressful work can get in the office at times. But one thing that's often overlooked is the lack of rest that most employees get in between their packed hours and tense business meetings. Don't worry too much about that as this truly genius invention called the Under Desk Hammock will let you have those valuable short naps during work hours without a hassle.

The design is made in such a way that the hammock blends well and suits most if not all corporate offices and environments. Usually, napping during business hours is always considered unprofessional, but with these neat hammocks, companies can definitely change their policies and include it in their spaces for better employee wellness. 



In the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia, the hours between 9 am and 5 pm (the traditional "9 to 5") are typically considered to be standard business hours. However, other countries have different business hour patterns.

Many workers in warmer climates observe siesta (La siesta is a Spanish language term which refers to a short nap of 15–30 minutes) during the afternoon, between the hours of 2 pm and 5 pm, effecting a pause in business hours, and resuming business in the evenings.



The Under-Desk Hammock is manufactured by Uplift Desk,  a manufacturer of ergonomic office furniture. The hammock is designed in such a way that it attaches itself to the standing desks that the brand is mainly known for. This creates a unique schism between a standing-work setting and a comfortable way to rest by lying down. 

The company writes on their website, "If so, it's time to rethink how you rest. Instead of a gallon-a-day coffee habit, you could be catching some z's whenever you please. The Under Desk Hammock clips in right under your UPLIFT V2 Standing Desk, providing you with a quiet little cocoon in the shade of your desktop. And you don't have to sleep in the hammock, necessarily. Your coworkers and friends will want to know more when they see you catching up on email from the comfort of your hanging hideaway. Be sure to show them how it works—and tell them where they can get their own!"



For all its technical complexity, it's dead easy to assemble the Under-Desk hammock. All you need to do is to first clip the hammock on the brand's UPLIFT V2 Frame using the included carabiners. The V2 Frame is very sturdy so don't worry about the balance or the weight.

There are no annoying holes or multiple straps for you to waste time on as the two anchor plates that accompany the frame can be easily installed using mounting points that are provided as part of the package. Other inclusivities are a storage bag that can house the hammock when shifting. 



With those simple steps, you can transform your UPLIFT V2 Standing Desk into a place of relaxation where you can happily recharge yourself with that post-lunch nap. Your coworkers and friends are bound to be impressed by this innovative product, which is available in both grey and blue.

You may also use the Connect mobile app to change the height of your hammock, making it convenient for you to get in or out in a moment's notice.
