You might be rethinking gifting this year….. It’s all about home life and even more so…home office.
I fell in love with all things Fluidstance when I got their balance board last year. I am never not standing on it when I’m working. Now they have two more cool things to add to the most ergonomic office station ever.
Due to various circumstances, ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic to shifts in workplace philosophy, it is no secret that people are spending an increased amount of time indoors and in front of their computer screens this year – proven research has shown that we are spending as much as 12 hours a day in front of TVs and computers.
THE SLOPE IS A WHITEBOARD MADE FROM STEEL AND NOT PLASTIC.
The Slope+ includes is the orginal Slope, made in the US of 100% steel, and a premium wireless charger.
Every year, 50 Billion paper sticky notes are made—that’s millions of trees cut down from our amazing forests. Slope will help reduce your eco-footprint by eliminating disposable paper notes.
Worthy of the modern workspace, Slope was designed to fit between your keyboard and monitor; its raised surface means you can slide your keyboard under it for storage, freeing up space on your desk. It offers a gentle angle for writing and a premium dry-erase surface.
The accompanying slim, lightweight charger is mounted on a custom silicone stand that was crafted to fit inside the channel of your Slope, providing support and cord management when charging your phone or tablet. It allows an optimal angle of view and adds even more functionality to your workspace while reducing clutter. This top-of-the-line wireless charging pad contains three charging coils, which means your device will charge whether it’s in a vertical or horizontal position.
The Slope is made of 100% heavy-duty steel (great for magnets) and is powder-coated with a low-emissions method for the perfect dry-erase surface on your desk. It has felt bumpers to protect your desk and the dry-erase pen comes in a microfiber eraser pouch.
For every Slope sold, they will plant one tree.
Top-of-the-line wireless charging pad contains three charging coils, which means your phone will charge whether it’s in a vertical or horizontal position. Charging functions best with phone cases between 4mm (0.16 in.) – 5mm (0.2 in.) thick; note that credit card sleeves or metal attachments will interfere with the charging.

The Raise™ The Sustainably-Made Monitor Riser.
This is gorgeous – my monitor had been stacked on art books. Not cute.
The Raise is a streamlined and expertly-crafted computer monitor riser designed to elevate your workspace and improve your workflow. The Raise’s ergonomic design and sturdy functionality totally enhances the comfort and efficiency of your everyday work experience.
“This year has shown us how fluid our work environments are and how we can be productive anywhere, as long as we have a workspace that is harmonious with our comfort and wellbeing,” said Joel Heath, Founder and CEO of FluidStance. “Whether you are working from a cabin the in backcountry, your high-rise office tower or from home, The Raise’s ergonomic design will de-clutter your workspace and enhance your productivity.”
Staying true to FluidStance’s dedication to sustainability and eco-friendly materials, The Raise is made from a 13-ply Birch veneer plywood with a low-emitting Bona hardwood floor finish. The monitor riser’s legs are made from 100% steel and powder-coated in white using a low-emissions process near FluidStance’s warehouse in Santa Barbara, California, meaning the product is 100% sourced, assembled and distributed in the USA. In fact, The Raise travels only some 50 miles before being shipped out to FluidStance’s customers, drastically cutting down on any carbon emissions associated with the transportation process.
The Raise’s elegant and minimalist appearance makes it a seamless addition to any indoor environment, and it can be used on any stable work surface – from your kitchen counter to your work desk or dining room table. It also boasts four silicone grommets to prevent the riser from slipping and protects your desk or work surface. Pair it with FluidStance’s personal desktop whiteboard, The Slope™, which fits under The Raise and provides the perfect nesting spot for desk accessories, like your keyboard, that might be cluttering your workflow.
The Raise is officially available for purchase at www.fluidstance.com for $129 and comes ready to be used with no assembly required. FluidStance is also offering a special launch bundle for The Raise and The Slope for $165. For more information about FluidStance or to view its entire product line, visit www.fluidstance.com.
