Wood Characteristics

Solid wood has imperfections and irregularities that will vary from one slab to another, such as knots. This trait is one of the many traits that give solid wood its character and uniqueness. We fill the holes on top of the stand with epoxy to make sure that your stand is even.

Wood Finish

We fill in the holes and cracks that could have an impact on the durability of your work surface to ensure it stays flat and stable over time. However, for ecological reasons, we do not fill shallow cracks or holes that don’t have such an impact. We also don’t fill holes or cracks under the worksurface to keep the wood in its natural state as much as possible and to avoid wasting materials.

Make sure to keep a constant temperature and humidity level, ideally between 18 and 21 ° C and between 45% and 55% for the humidity level. Variations may put your wood top under stress, which may result in cracks and curves. Some protective pads made of synthetic rubbers can react with wood lacquer and create surface discoloration. Always test for chemical reaction on a discreet section of your desk.

To allow flexibility for installation, we do not pre-drill holes on the Alive desk for the drawer.Since every Alive surface is unique, we want to ensure that you get to decide the optimal positioning for your drawer.

Sourcing & Materials

Live Edge Solid Wood Tabletop

Handmade locally in Canada, we take pride in crafting our tops with care and precision. The solid wood we use is sourced from sustainably managed North American forests, ensuring both quality and environmental responsibility.

Ecological Finish

We're proud to reduce our environmental impact by prioritizing a water-based lacquer for most of our desks, which keeps the finish as smooth as ever. Our lacquer is applied exclusively to the top surfaces of our wooden desks, as coating the underside serves no purpose.

High Quality Standing Frame

Manufactured in North America, our high quality standing frame embodies quality through and through. Each component is carefully selected for its high quality, and the frame itself is constructed with the most durable materials available.

The Alive Standing Desk in Walnut - Ergonofis
Seamless Swipe Technology

Introducing our Alive Standing Desk with Seamless Swipe Technology. This innovative feature allows you to effortlessly adjust your desk's height with a single, intuitive swipe motion – either up or down. Our goal is to make your workspace as efficient and user-friendly as possible, and with this one-swipe height adjustment, you can tailor your desk to your exact preferences without any complexity.

Two Saved Position per User

Effortlessly save both your preferred standing and sitting desk heights, allowing for a seamless transition between the two. These saved positions are unique to each user, ensuring a personalized and hassle-free experience. By simply selecting your pre-saved heights, the desk will automatically adjust to your desired position, eliminating the need for manual adjustments and making it easier than ever to maintain your ideal working posture throughout the day.

Four Different Users

We've designed the Alive Standing Desk to accommodate up to four different users, providing a personalized experience tailored to your unique preferences and requirements. Whether you're utilizing it in a shared workspace or within your family, each user can securely store their individual settings. This functionality simplifies the process of adjusting your desk's height and configuration to perfectly align with your specific needs and ensure your utmost comfort.

Reminders to Move

Our reminder feature empowers users to set intervals for standing prompts using the desk's interface, promoting a more active and health-conscious work routine. By encouraging regular posture changes, it not only helps you maintain better alignment but also mitigates the adverse effects of prolonged sitting.

Superior Anti-Collision System

The anti-collision system on our Alive Standing Desk is a highly sensitive and effective safety feature. It ensures that the desk operates securely, automatically detecting and responding to obstacles in its path. This advanced technology prevents collisions and potential damage, providing you with peace of mind and a secure workspace environment.

Quiet Double Motors

Our Alive Standing Desk features quiet double motors that operate almost silently. These robust motors can lift up to 360 lbs, providing both a peaceful work environment and dependable desk adjustments.

The Sway Standing Desk in Walnut - ergonofis
Exceptional Durability

A solid wood surface is renowned for its exceptional durability due to the inherent strength and resilience of the material. Unlike composite or veneer alternatives, solid wood consists of a single, continuous piece of timber, which makes it inherently sturdy and resistant to wear and tear. Its natural density and structural integrity allow it to withstand the rigors of daily use, from heavy objects being placed on it to the inevitable bumps and scratches that occur over time.

Sustainably Made

Produced right here in Canada, our tops are meticulously handcrafted, reflecting our commitment to excellence. We are dedicated to sustainability, utilizing solid wood from responsibly managed North American forests to guarantee both top-notch quality and environmental stewardship.

Timeless Design

The Sway Standing Desk embodies a timeless design that seamlessly merges classic aesthetics with modern functionality. We take pride in crafting it with meticulous attention to detail, infusing it with clean lines, premium materials, and a minimalist approach that stands the test of time, just like solid wood, which develops a captivating patina over the years.
