Rated 1 out of 5 by from Motor stopped working This desk WAS perfect. But the motor stopped after about a year, and it is now stuck a few inches higher than the "sit" position. Terrible execution on a great idea.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Do not Buy! I had paid to have it assembled and delivered. After it stoped working I saw that some people stated that it was the power brick. I Took the power Brick back they told me that I had to bring the whole desk back. So now I have to remove everything, disassemble the desk, Pay to have it delivered to Ikea, so that they can test and give me a new power brick, and pay for delivery assembly and then have to put my stuff and cables all over. Do not Buy!! Save your money, spend a little extra with a company that stands behind their products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Desk Only Moves Upward 0.5 Inches at a Time! I bought this desk in June 2016 and after 1 year the desk stopped working properly. Now the desk will only go up in 0.5 inch increments and I must wait about 30 to 60 seconds between pushes on the button. The desk goes down with no problem, just will NOT go up properly. I have read that there is some issue with the power pack and it must be replaced. Ikea, can you send me a new power pack?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not go up and down anymore When it worked initially I would have said "five stars". Now that it wont go up and down anymore, "one star". I read online that removing the power source from the transformer for ~30 seconds could restore function, and that usually works, but I did not buy the desk to crawl on my knees once each day. Based on the many poor reviews I assume this is a usual problem for many users. If there is a solution, I'll revisit my review.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked for about 1.5 yr I loved this desk. It was perfect. Then I rearranged my furniture and one side quit working. Not something I would image happening by simply moving it. Looking at all the other reviews, I see this is a problem with this model. I don't have a receipt, but would love to get a replacement base (I hope this model has been improved since then).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy This Desk! I bought this desk when I was shopping for furniture for our new home. I have a disability that makes it hard to stay in one position for long and this seemed like the perfect solution. Not only did we buy the desk, we paid for delivery and assembly of this and over $20,000.00 worth of furniture and IKEA does not support you, even when you paid for assembly. This desk stopped working soon after we first used it and we never received even a return phone call from customer support regarding this or the other issues that we had with furniture we bought. It's a shame because I like the furniture appearance wise, but it does not do what it is supposed to do, and customer support is non existent. The desk is worthless now and I have nowhere to work - please don't spend your hard earned money on this, especially if you are disabled like I am, and don't believe the 10 year warranty!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Now I see why 1 star. Motor Lasted 15 minutes!!! Carefully and gently assembled the desk. Tested the motor up... fine. Then thought I'd try adjusting it to sit. One leg stopped moving. Removed and replugged every cable and still the same.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay away!!!!! Just wow. And Ikea offering for that piece of furniture 10 years warranty. That is something you do not expect from $500 table. Table was standing none touch a year. My little daughter make her first steps and I decide to lift a desk and when I press that magic button is just did work. waste of money.....

Smart functions

GALANT desks become BEKANT desks
We’re updating our popular GALANT desks – fine-tuning them to meet today’s highest demands for design and function. We’re adding a sit and stand function that helps you live a healthier life at work, and upgrading with contemporary styling that looks great in an office – or home office. All desks will come with cable management nets. There will be more sizes and shapes to choose from – and flexible conference tables too. With so many updates, we also decided to change the name to BEKANT.

Designer thoughts

Designers Karl Malmvall and Eva Lilja Löwenhielm
"When we designed the BEKANT series our goal was to make flexible desk combinations that encourage collaborations, meetings and creativity. The desks come in different sizes and shapes – you can use one alone or combine them to suit your needs. And they’re easy to add onto, or change, any time your needs do. To encourage a healthy work environment, most underframes have a sit and stand function that allows you to vary positions. Also, this series has been tested and approved for professional use, so it’s perfect in all types of offices."
