Bamboo Desktops

From sustainable plantations

The vast majority of desks, including adjustable height desks, use pressed-wood products, laminate, veneer or MDF. These are packed with formaldyhyde which is toxic to both humans and the environment.

What’s the perfect natural, beautiful, and sustainable material? Bamboo. It is the fastest growing woody plant on earth. Technically a grass, bamboo has been known to grow 39 inches in just 24 hours. Our bamboo desktops are FSC certified.

Solvent Free Paints

Free of volatile organic compounds

Stand Desk frames are powder coated exclusively using solvent-free paints. Solvents threaten animal and plant life, and the sustainability of our environment and also have numerous detrimental effects on human beings.
