Wonderful DeskSusanThis desk was easy to put together and is great to use.5
Not SatisifiedLAKSHMINot satisfied. The product was so delicate. The cost and quality is not matched and never recommend to others.1
Nice standup deskVitaliI own this desk for a month and I like it. The motor is not very loud and smooth, the table top has rounded corners to keep the heads of our little ones playing around save. The height adjustment range is superb for the price. The only minor thing to improve would be the control panel - adjustment buttons could have been more responsive, i have to firmly grab the control with full hand to make sure i go to needed height uninterrupted.5
Mixed experience with this purchaseDeborahThe desk is great. The delivery went wrong with only 2 of 3 packages arriving. That's when I discovered that IKEA customer service is non-existent. I had to go to Twitter (!) to get a response. Took 7+weeks to get everything. This experience has definitely lowered my opinion of IKEA.5
Easy assembly and works asRodolfoEasy assembly and works as advertised after 3 weeks of daily use.5
Nice size. Works greatJeanaR123I bought this a few years ago for my home office and came here just to review it. In the 3 years I've had it, the motor broke once and Ikea replaced it free of charge. Otherwise, it's perfect and rivals my in-office sit/stand desk.5
Perfect size for what I needed.DianeT_63Being forced to work from home due to the pandemic I needed a desk that I can rise and lower as I had at my work. This desk is the right size for having 2 monitors and other computer paraphernalia. Love that I can stand up or sit with any kind of chair. The only things that I need to bring up is that the power supply needs to be plugged into a wall outlet vs. a power strip. Being plugged into a power strip that's turned on and off, as needed, seems to do something internal to the power supply. When I had it plugged into the power strip I only get the desk to rise or lower intermittently. But since it's plugged into a wall outlet I haven't had any issues. The other thing that needs to be addressed is the hammock that covers the power supply under the desk is really tight, I understand why it has to be tight, but with it being as tight as it is causes the mounting holes to enlarge after some time of having the power supply cradled in the hammock.4
KNOW WHAT YOUR EXPECTATIONS ARE.KallisonThis is one of the most affordable desks I could find. Is it solid? I would say yes. Is it the most solid out there? No, it’s not. Assembly was a breeze. Live close to an IKEA, so it will be easy to take advantage of the 10 year warranty. Evaluate your situation before purchasing, but for me it’s great.4
Worked until it didn"t...Minty1Had this desk for around 4 years and it's gradually become worse and worse. The motor will stop every couple of inches now. I had expected much better - it's only used a couple of days a week and I only raise/lower it four or five times a day.1
Perfect for Our KidsScotty_MAWe bought two of these desks for the twins. They are perfect, our son is a fidgeter and our daughter loves to it works our great.5
Great desk207JaneI purchased this desk for my office. I needed a small sit to stand desk. This is perfect and is very easy for two persons to assemble. It is so easy and quick to change. You do not have to worry about your monitor moving it is so smooth.5
Versatilejk1951The ability to raise and lower the level is very versatile.5
DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!Kris10CTIf I could give it 0 stars, I would. We bought this less than a month ago and it was easy to put together. The first day I used it, it stopped working. I crawled under the desk and unhooked the wires and replugged them in. It worked again. It was fine for the next week or so but now it stops working just about every day. I emailed IKEA and they haven't responded - very annoying. I had a bad feeling that this would happen. I wish I had gone with the desk with the hand crank - it would probably work better.1
Wow, up or down at the touch of a buttonlfctI was not looking for this particular desk but stumbled on it at the Ikea store. I am so happy to have it. The set up was clear and easy to follow. And the desk performs so well. I love having the ability to work standing or sitting.5
Amazing desk I have 3 purchasing a 4thDay trader workstationSo not sure what people expect out of a sit stand desk with a 10 year warranty. Well here it goes purchased one in 2015 for business for my office. Amazing not a problem, nice and wide space for dual monitor. 1.5 years later the leg died I was didn’t even plan on replacing that weekend was near the college park store swung in and told them. “I think one of the legs died” she said cool do have the card u purchased it on and I said yes swipe gave me 2new legs and on my way I said that’s it she said yes. Done Purchase 2nd and 3rd about May 2017 and sept 2017 2nd one was my other store location not problems same 32 dual monitors setup office stuff. 3rd desk - I am a part time day trader and I wanted a sit stand desk that is big enough to hand 6 - 32“ monitors when calculating the weight of the 2 stands and monitors I and short 1lb of the recommended max weight. If one of these legs die I’m gonna take down a lot of hardware. So far so good desk is strong I would highly recommend. A lil wobbly weight the max weight but I have the bases drilled into the wood of the the desk with a bolt to secure it from toppling over. No issues even with a 3 year old playing with the up and down button when we are downstairs occasionally. So I have the pin locked Highly recommend About to purchase my 4th desk this week for my 3 store. The 10 year warranty alone for a electronic product is amazing. I and fortunate that the Ikea store is about 25 mins away 35 with traffic5
shoud have usb port and electric outletsing77looks nice and have tried it , i think ikea should do some quality control on this product and add more features like usb and electrical switch, on this one,it will increase there volume a lot on this product.4
Loved it - now hate itJulie2345Should probably have done better research - the desk was great while it worked but than stopped working. I learned that it was a common thing - HOWEVER IKEA customer service it just awful. They know the power supply is not working and yet they make it super hard for you to do anything about it. I should have probably ordered online but I went to the store to look at it the store is more than an hour away and I don't have a car - I got it to be delivered and set up by IKEA paid another sum for that. Now they are telling me to get it to the store if it is not working - which is really not an option for me (it will cost me approximately $100) and I cannot carry it or take it apart alone so will need to hire someone. Overall super disappointed lost a lot of money and time on this.1
Awesome as a table for my craft room!momartisanphysicianI spent hours researching a table for my craft room. It had to be adjustable height so that my young kids could do crafts on it. I have it in the center of my craft room and keep it unplugged except when I want to adjust the height. It is super sturdy and has great range of heights.5
Great, especially if you are SHORT!!!!Shannon WAI have been all over the market looking for an adjustable desk that was not a child's desk. I am short in the trunk area of my body so having a desk that I can have just above my knees so that my arms are ergonomic has been extremely difficult to find. The only thing I wish this desk had was memory - such as the standing height so that I wouldn't have to push it up each time with my finger on it. Easiest installation of furniture from IKEA in a long time :)5
Great Adjustable DeskPattyLindI bought this at least 3 years ago for my full time work at home call center job. I am totally satisfied with the desk, not one problem with it. I can sit on a yoga ball and adjust the table down low, or I can use a stool to sit up high or anywhere in between. However, most of the time I stand. I bought it on a friends and family sale but think it a good value at todays price. Couldn't do my job without the flexibility it allows me. Buy it.5

Sustainable life at home

Sit or stand up while you work

With our sit/stand desks, you can easily move from sitting to standing whenever you want. Simply adjust the height of the desk to reach a comfortable standing or sitting position. Research suggests that changing positions throughout the work day can support overall health and well-being. So take a stand, now and again.

BEKANT Desk sit/stand, white/black, 47 1/4x31 1/2 "

Designed for comfort and built to last

Whether we work in an office or at home, many of us spend the majority of the day at a desk. A comfortable workspace is therefore essential for our health and well-being. Since we are all different shapes and sizes, it is important to have office furniture that can be customized to our personal needs. This brochure shows how we make your comfort our priority, and what you can do to achieve the best working environment.

Create the best workspace for you

It’s important to create the most comfortable working environment to suit you. Working for longer periods of time while sitting or standing in a bad or uncomfortable position can cause neck and back injuries as well as other serious health problems. Find out what you can do to create an ergonomic workspace, and learn about the different quality tests we carry out and the materials we use. What’s an ergonomic workspace? Ergonomics is about designing products or environments to make them safe and comfortable for people to use. An ergonomic workspace is one that is customized to your personal needs, allowing you to work in a comfortable and safe way.

Feel good and work better

We want to help you achieve an ergonomic working environment that suits you and promotes good health. This means adjusting the workspace to your needs, adopting an ergonomic position and keeping as mobile as possible. The human body is made to move, so ideally, your workspace should give you the choice of sitting, standing and leaning, allowing you to change positions often. And if you feel good at work, you will work better.

Some tips:

Choosing the right chair, desk, monitor or lamp can help create a comfortable working environment, but it cannot correct bad posture. Make sure you adopt a good posture when sitting or standing for longer periods to avoid injury. Here are some tips on how to create a comfortable workspace.


You should be able to stretch your legs under the table and turn 90° to the left and right for freedom of flexibility. The hips and knees should be at an angle of approx. 95-100° with your feet flat on the floor. HEIGHT Choose a height-adjustable chair. When standing, the highest point of the seat should be just below your knee cap. You should aim for an even distribution of weight. Raise your chair if you feel pressure near the back of your seat, but if you feel pressure near the front of your seat, you should lower your chair. This will improve the circulation of blood and reduce the risk of swelling. SEAT TILT Use the seat tilt to lock a position and to improve your comfort. It will affect the distribution of weight and can provide better stability and support when you need it. A tilt of 5° is recommended.

LUMBAR SUPPORT A chair with lumbar support will relieve the small of your back from tension caused by tiredness. The tilt of the back support should allow you to sit with your upper body slightly reclined (recommended 110°). ARMRESTS Armrests can provide support for the upper part of your forearms, and reduce the stress on your shoulders and back. Make sure that the armrests do not prevent the chair from being drawn close to the desk, nor restrict natural movements. Also keep in mind that soft armrests will be more comfortable for your elbows.


A height-adjustable desk is ideal as it will allow you to change position often. Alternating between sitting and standing will reduce the risk of injury and increase circulation, as well as productivity. The top of your work surface should be elbow height and your elbows should be at a 90° angle when sitting or standing at your desk.


A standing support enables a position between sitting and standing, and is ideal when you have a height adjustable desk. It has the following advantages: Provides freedom of movement for your upper and lower body. Activates and strengthens the core muscles of your body. Gives you an open posture which improves your circulation and metabolic rate.


Make sure your monitor is not placed too close to you. With your chair pulled in and arms stretched in front of you, you should not be able to touch the screen. The monitor should be placed directly in front of you, with the top just below eye level. Placing the monitor too high can cause neck problems. For longer periods at your monitor, make sure your arms and wrists are supported. The keyboard and mouse should be placed around 4-6" from the edge of the desk, so that the wrists are supported, but not too far that your neck and shoulders lean forwards. The monitor should be tilted at 20°-30°, which is an optimal angle for the eyes as well as the neck and shoulders.


To provide ideal lighting you should consider a combination of general lighting, mood lighting and task lighting. A desk lamp is a type of task light that provides a concentrated beam of light over a limited area. This is useful when focusing on paperwork. General lighting provides a uniform light through the whole room. Mood lighting provides a cozy feeling and softens the contrasts between general and task lighting. Place the lamp on your left side if you are right handed to reduce shadows. Computers near a window should be roughly placed at a 90° angle to the window in order to avoid glare.


We test our products for quality, safety and durability to meet international testing standards. We have very tight restrictions on chemicals, and even though certain products meet international standards they might not meet our own higher standards. In that case we will not manufacture those products. Your safety is always our top priority.

International standards

We test that our products are in line with international standards according to or set by EN and ANSI/BIFMA. In addition, IKEA has its own chemical and quality testing. EN stands for European Norm. These standards are recognized throughout Europe and they assure strength, durability and stability. ANSI/BIFMA ANSI is the American National Standards Institute, which creates and oversees norms and standards, and accredits organizations like BIFMA to formulate tests for different sectors. BIFMA, the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association, creates standards for business furniture with the highest safety standards. The professional office furniture from IKEA is tested according to BIFMA’s safety and resistance requirements.

High-quality testing

Tests are carried out in our test labs in Sweden and China in the product development phase. The test methods are the same for home and professional use, but for professional use the products are tested with heavier loads and more cycles.

How we test our office furniture

Desk and desk chairs that are intended for home use are tested to assure they are comfortable, stable, safe and durable. The series of tests we put our desk chairs through are more rigorous to meet the strict requirements on stability, strength and durability. For instance, the chairs are subjected to heavy loads up to about 300 000 times. Desks for home use are subjected to various tests including stability, strength and durability tests. The kinds of tests that are carried out depend upon the design of the desk, and which areas of the desk that are expected to be most exposed to wear and tear. Tests carried out on desks for professional use are stricter than those for home use. Desks that meet those standards will adhere to the following standards: EN 527, ANSI/BIFMA X5, which means we test their stability, durability and safety. For example, we might test the strength of a product by subjecting it to a vertical force of 100 kg for 10 seconds×10 times.

Storage Quality tests are carried out on storage furniture for safety and durability. Different parts including doors, drawers, surfaces and wheels are subjected to different tests. Storage furniture that has been tested for office use meets the following standards: EN 14073 and ANSI/BIFMA × 5.9.


We care about what goes into our products and always aim to use resources in the most efficient way possible. We choose our materials carefully while keeping prices low. Some materials work better for certain furniture depending on its use and design. For example, Melamine is often used in table tops because it has high surface resistance against scratches and marks. Melamine – a paper film with an impregnated print or pattern, which is applied under pressure to a board. The result is a durable, heat-resistant and water-repellent surface which is easy to keep clean. Veneer – thin layers of wood glued on to a board. All IKEA veneer is lacquered which makes it easy to clean, durable and protects it from moisture and scratches. Board on frame – A wooden board or fiber board with a honeycomb filling structure made of recycled paper. It is lightweight yet sturdy, and uses significantly less raw material. Bamboo – stronger and more flexible than most wood. Sustainable fast growing grass that produces twice as much oxygen than tree species.

Solid wood – a renewable, natural material that is durable and every piece is unique with its varying grain. IKEA sources all wood from closely inspected logging and carefully chosen forests. GLOSE leather – a soft yet durable dyed-through grain leather, treated with a protective coating. Easy to look after. Treat with ABSORB leather care set. Plastics - A synthetic or semi-synthetic material that can be molded and is made from oil or natural gas but also from plants. There are two categories of plastics: thermosplastics that can be heated, molded and melted, and thermoset plastics that cannot be remelted. The most commonly used in IKEA are thermoplastis such as polycarbonate and polypropylene. Wood plastic composite WPC – A mixture of wood and fiber that is molded into a form, combining the advantages of the two materials. It is strong and lighter than other plastics, making transportation costs lower and reducing environmental impact. Paint & lacquer powder coating is a process where dry powder paint is applied to a surface, often metal. It is an efficient and environmentally sustainable technique, since there’s little waste of powder and no solvents are used.

Designer thoughts

"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."
