A desk is no longer just a desk. These days, you can buy a desk that doubles as whiteboard, one that folds out from the wall, and even one that converts into a bed. Now, thanks to this handy desk hammock, you can transform your desk into a nap area, too.

The Under Desk Hammock is exactly what it sounds like: a hammock you can attach to the underside of your desk to catch some ZZZs. But hey: There’s nothing stopping you from catching up on email or sending meeting recaps from under there, too.

Unfortunately, the hammock doesn’t work with just any desk. It’s only compatible with UPLIFT V2 Desks/Frames and UPLIFT V2 L-Shaped Desks/Frames, which you can shop here. But it does come with two 6.5’ lengths of rope, which you can use to string it up between two trees or support poles.

The hammock, which is available in gray and blue, attaches to the underside of the desk via two anchor plates that came with it. Once you secure the plates, just clip the hammock into place using the carabiners and you’re ready to relax.

Now, this isn’t a regular hammock—it’s a smart hammock. You can adjust the height of it using an app on your phone, which makes it a lot easier to get in and out without tipping over. When mounted to an UPLIFT desk, the hammock can hold up to 200 pounds. And when you’re not using it, it folds up neatly into a small storage bag that you can stash in one of your desk drawers during non-napping hours.

If your office doesn’t have nap pods or napping desks, the desk hammock is the next best solution to squeezing in some shut-eye at work.
