Home / Our Story
MotionGrey is a Vancouver based company with the mission of providing an ergonomic solution to our everyday workspace. With sitting for prolonged periods becoming such a common practice, numerous studies have shown that health complications are directly connected to this bad habit.
“If I can help people transcend their day-to-day problems so they have space to think about the more important parts of life, such as self-existence, giving back, and things that are bigger than us, then I have succeeded.”
Hi, I’m Andy.
I’m a Civil Engineer with a great passion for innovation and design. I love to keep learning, play all types of sports, and give back to the community. All of these have contributed to what MotionGrey is now.
I suffered from personal back pain some years ago after getting an injury from sports, and the pain progressed when I started working more from home. Physio and rehab helped, but the continued stress and pain caused by my posture when at home or at work sitting in front of a desk would worsen the pain.
My journey started here, in my search for a solution, and in the process I discovered that the problem is so much bigger and so much more common. Over the years, it has become a mission to help people improve their lives through ergonomics
“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” - Proverbs 16:9
Hi, I’m Alex.
I’m a Civil Engineer and a traveler with an unsated curiosity for understanding how things work. I consider myself a follower of Christ, and I am interested in human experience and in helping my community.
These interests have made me attuned to some of the most common yet seldom noticed everyday problems of modern society, such as this growing affliction we all call our sedentary lifestyle. In an effort to find solutions, I discovered standing desks.
They are the future of the modern workspace and the foundation of a healthy working lifestyle, but they were accessible only to an exclusive few due to their high cost. There weren’t many local options, and what few were available were all subpar in quality. We built MotionGrey to bring this solution to the people who need them most.
