Modern Standing Desk by Artifox

View all 11 Photos

The latest research warns us of the dangers that hide behind a seemingly harmless desk – specifically, one that requires you to sit to get the job done. A slew of standing workstations have hit the market in response to this claim that “sitting is the new smoking,” but none are as sleek and well-considered as the Standing Desk 01 from Artifox. Modeled after a traditional writing desk, it draws on classic design elements like a built in draft surface – available as either a conventional blackboard or the more modern whiteboard – in an updated version of the everyday workspace. With a dock for mobile devices, adjustable leg height, a storage hook, and a cabinet for built-in chord cover-up, Standing Desk 01 will have you sitting – or standing – pretty. A magnetic system that runs through the legs further prevents chord clutter, allowing the user to better appreciate this elegant piece of American craft (that’s right – it’s even made in the USA). Solid hardwood and aircraft grade aluminum hardware ensure that it will stand by your side for years to come. Available in either maple or walnut, the beauty of this simple piece is sure to spark your creativity while the ergonomic design keeps you feeling productive and energized. “Build” your own desk on the Artifox website, choosing from thoughtful customizations that include options for the left-handed minority.
