The workstation is extra comfortable to work at, because the contoured table top allows you to sit close and supports your wrists and forearms.

Keep your coffee, beverage or snacks nearby in the cut-out cup holders on either side of the table top. The cup holders are made of plastic that is approved for use with food.

Hang the small shelves inside or outside the side panels, depending on your needs.

You can fit a 32" computer monitor or TV by removing the shelf above the table top.

The high side panels help block sunlight and prevent distracting glare on your computer monitor.

Good but not perfectVerified ReviewerThis is a good gaming desk, but like many products which claim to be designed especially for gaming, it’s not 100% perfect. 1. The lower shelves at the side won’t fit the average midi ATX case. Width and length yes, but height will not leave enough headroom for top cooling. I didn’t fit the right hand shelf but put it on the floor with my pc on top. 2. Not designed for monitor arms. No way to add an arm to the desk proper, but just about possible on the lower shelf if one uses something to spread the load and your monitor is not too heavy. I used black steel monitor mount strengthening plates, and it just about works with a 27” monitor which weight 6.5kg. 3. Cup holders - oddly sized. Too small and too shallow imho. If you drink mugs of tea then they won’t fit, nor will many tea cups. A stemmed wine glass or certain straight pint glasses work, but meh. 4. metal support bar under front of desk reduces space. I don’t think this desk is high enough tbh, but the metal strut underneath gets in the way. 5. Metal side panels aren’t really fixed to the body of the desk. The slightest nudge and they rattle or come off. 6. Not enough size detail on the Ikea site. It’s difficult to work out in advance what will fit on the various shelves. 7. The fitting of the shelves across the back of the desk is extremely fiddly and the metal brackets are extremely annoying to use. Overall it is a good desk and for the price it’s good value. I’m glad I have it, but it needs to be tweaked to achieve 100% imho.4

Great DeskVerified ReviewerMy son said it could do with a couple more cable holes along the back of the desk top for cable from keyboard etc. Overall extremely good and very pleased.4
Excellent Gaming workstationVerified ReviewerSuper easy to put together! Very Good quality. Exceeds expectation.5
Perfect for gamersVerified ReviewerMy son loves this desk. It’s massive when built and looks very cool for a gamer. Downside. For an ikea product, the instructions weren’t that clear and some of the parts are tricky to put together. Overall very sturdy.4
Verified ReviewerThis desk is ideal for someone who loves computers! It's well built, easy to assemble, and includes little extras that take the gaming experience onto another level. It also looks stunning! Very pleased!!5
Verified ReviewerBought this desk for my teenage sons, they helped to build it so that should say how easy it was to build, it looks good and is really functional my boys and myself are very happy with it5
FYI - doesn't fit a standard mid tower PC caseVerified ReviewerAs others have said the build instructions are a bit odd. The rotating bar that scrapes the metal of the frame - why would you tell someone to do this Ikea?! The picture for this desk shows a tower but I'm guessing it's a mini tower and although the description clearly says make sure and measure up, i feel it's false advertising. I would expect most gamers to have a mid not mini tower. The shelf just needs to be an inch lower and it would be perfect. Very frustrating. Considering all the choices for shelving placement, there's actually very little flexibility in this build. One of my monitors is on a bracket, not a stand, there's no room at the back or side of the shelves for this which means i can't have the shelf just above the desk it's now just under the top shelf. That means there is now less space for the keyboard. Now that's my bad for not checking my usage of it, but just a point to note. Several bits of the metal were twisted on opening the package. This makes building a bit more challenging. There were also misaligned holes. I can't say i find the build wobbly as others have said, feels sturdy enough to me.3

Getting gaming right

If you’re not in to computer gaming yourself, perhaps you have children who are. Across the world, gaming is booming, and naturally IKEA should provide furniture designed for it. So how do players set up a game station to create that immersive gaming experience, what do they need to feel comfortable and supported while playing? When creating FREDDE desk we needed to know. How we found out? We asked a gamer.

David Wahl is not only one of our designers. He’s a gamer too. Of course he got the task. “When I started playing video games you'd have to make sure your friends were free, and someone’s house was free, then make your way down the street, console in hand to play,” David says. “Now, it's just as likely that you're playing with people in Shanghai or Sydney or Stockholm.”

Creating a gaming command central

One of the advantages of gaming's move beyond the TV or the family computer is that gamers are free to make a space customized to enjoy each game's full potential. “A big part of gaming is the immersive experience,” David says. “So my first move when designing FREDDE was to make a cut out in the desktop so that you could be closer to the screen and have almost a command central sort of feel, while also getting support for your arms at the same time.”

Made to be customized

FREDDE fits speakers, a 32" screen, or a couple of smaller screens on a height adjustable shelf. David also had a personal wish. “I used to love playing driving simulator games where you would often use pedals, the same as a car,” he says. “I always found it annoying if you had cables or other things in the way when you were driving so I made sure to design the desk with an unobstructed space for pedals on FREDDE.”

A designer's proudest moment

David is proud to see the gaming community making the desk their own. “If you do an image search for FREDDE it's fantastic to see how people are adapting it to create their own perfect game space, which is exactly in tune with what I hoped.”


What is steel?

Steel has unique characteristics when it is stretched and shaped since it remains strong. It provides strength to everything from skyscrapers and cars to bed frames and outdoor furniture. The steel industry is moving in the direction of more energy-efficient production and stronger steel qualities. It doesn’t lose any of its properties when recycled and today steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world.
