In a collaboration with ergonomist Kirsty Angerer, MARK has designed Otto, a table that addresses poor posture from laptop use. The table can be pulled to the user for better support and is height adjustable. It features a laptop riser, which pops out of the surface so that the screen can be raised and allows for a keyboard. Otto is ideal for video calls when the screen is raised to eye level.
