You can easily adjust the height of the desk between 70 and 120 cm by just cranking the handle and get the best position for both sitting and standing.

Changing positions between sitting and standing helps you move your body so you both feel and work better.

Comfortable for left- and right-handers, as the crank handle can be mounted on the left or right side.

The crank handle slides in under the table top when not in use for a clean, uncluttered look.

Adjustable feet make the desk stand steady also on uneven floors.

This product has been developed and tested for office use.

May be completed with SIGNUM cable trunking to keep all cords in place.

Fab piece of equipment, easyVerified BuyerFab piece of equipment, easy to assemble for one person.5
Revolutionary!Verified BuyerAfter a year of working from home using a tiny vintage desk, this has revolutionised my working space. Constant neck/shoulder tension prompted the need to sort a solution and this is a gem. Offering the option of a sitting or standing desk, it’s fully height adjustable meaning for the first time ever I can have my feet flat of the floor without a footrest! It’s sturdy construction, and easy to put together. It’s a manual, hand cranked one rather than electric but actually hardly takes any time or effort to raise/lower.5
Good Table slight fault in partsVerified BuyerWhen making this table one of the parts had got squashed meaning I could not thread the two together. Looking at the design I sawed off about 2cm so that the squashed end was missing and it works fine. The table is great just need to get used to standing again.4
Simple and sturdy. Would beVerified BuyerSimple and sturdy. Would be better if it had a better quality top or a choice of a better quality top.5
Skarsta deskVerified BuyerVery solid desk (quite heavy to move), but then it needs to be to cope with having monitors etc on it when fully raised to standing position. It takes about 60 turns of the handle to get it from standing to sitting height for me, but it doesn’t feel at all flimsy when doing so.5
Great hobby tableVerified BuyerSolid and super sturdy. Easy to raise and lower and I can move it around easily on my laminate flooring. Been out to good use from day one of having it. Would have been 5* but for a slight misalignment of leg frame. Not very noticeable but disappointing all the same4
Cherry204The design of adjustable height are very useful, especially perfect for growing children. The wide depth let my daughter use the computer for online lesson and also have enough space for writing or painting. Highly recommended!5
Good value sit stand desk.SanjayPThis desk is quite stable even at full extension. Well made. Easy assembly. Simpl manual mechanism5
Stiff height adjust leverHoward LeeAs mentioned in the title.3
Simple and effectiveAleksRI love this desk. Good price, sturdy design, does what it suppose to. Easy to lift up and down. Makes a bit of a funny noise when I move it down, but may be down to the assembly. Works perfectly though!5
Excellent productCrafty EyemacSturdy, stable and easy to use rise and fall table. Good work area, not to large so fits my work room well. Easy to build, still haven't worked out what the black washer is for, its not in the instructions, hehe.5

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

“When we develop work furniture, we always involve ergonomic experts. One challenge we’ve had is to figure out what colour of desk is best if you work a lot on the computer. Especially if you also have to peek at your phone several times per hour – a reality I think many of us recognise”, says Anthony Rotman, Product Developer.

Look out for your friends

When the eyes shift focus from the computer screen to the phone and then back to the computer again, they have to adapt to different backgrounds and contrasts. One way to get around the problem is to have a desk in a neutral tone. “There’s no absolute answer to which colour is best; it depends on what you prefer and what type of work you do. But, if you often experience that your eyes become tired and already have tried with an extra cup of coffee, there’s a good chance that a work desk in more muted colours can help”, tips Anthony.

Squint less for less headache

There are other details that can make the workday a little easier. A low-gloss surface can for example help to reduce glare. “Just like contrasts, glare can be straining to the eyes. It makes us squint, and when we do that for a long time, it’s not uncommon that a headache comes knocking”, says Anthony. From an evolutionary perspective, our bodies haven’t had the time to adjust to long hours with different digital screens. “The good news is that small, thought-out details that don’t cost a fortune, can make a huge difference in our daily work – and improve our health and well-being in the long run.”

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.

Material

What is constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light and resource-efficient, yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fibreboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.
