Meet Crystal Acrylic, the ultimate
desk surface. Its velvet-smooth
texture is so amazing, you'll want
to keep your hands on it.

CRYSTAL ACRYLIC. MADE IN ITALY.
The smoothest table
top ever made.

Meet Crystal Acrylic, the ultimate
desk surface. Its velvet-smooth texture
is so amazing, you'll want to keep
your hands on it.

Is this better than a solid wood
table top?

Yes. Here’s why.

Solid wood scratches and chips off easily, and the varnish fades
over time, resulting in a worn or aged appearance. These issues make
solid wood furniture less durable and less visually appealing in the
long term. In contrast, Crystal Acrylic is an exceptionally strong
material with a shore hardness of D94, which makes it highly
resistant to wear and tear. Its clear finish will not fade, so your
desk will always look brand new.

Solid wood requires a lot of maintenance, as it can be affected by
factors such as sunlight, temperature variations, termites, moisture,
and spills. In contrast, crystal acrylic requires no maintenance at all
and can be used freely without worrying about these issues.

Crystal acrylic has an incredible texture. It feels so much softer
under your hands than wood. It’s a much better surface to work
on if you work for hours at a time.

Can I get the desk in another color?

Presently, the Charcoal Desk only comes in white.

But if you’re wondering if the desk will match the rest of your
room, the answer is very likely yes. As white is such a timeless
color, we’ve seen it blend in everywhere - from warm interiors
with lots of wood to modern dark room aesthetics. So even if
you were looking for a black desk, chances are that a white
one will work for you.

ENGINEERED TO PERFECTION
The new benchmark for
standing desks.
Is it the sturdiest
standing desk?

Yes. We tested desks from all
major brands, from the ones that
cost $599 to ones that cost more
than $1500 and none of them are
nearly as stable as the Charcoal
Desk.

Is it the quietest
and fastest?

Yes. The Charcoal Desk has the best
three-stage, dual-motor columns in
the world, the DL6 Plus from the Danish
manufacturer Linak. These are the
quietest and fastest.

Does it work for
every height?

Yes. It doesn't matter if you're 5
feet tall or 7 feet tall, the three-stage
columns have an extended height
range that works for everyone.

Can I save
height presets?

Yes, and it’s really easy. All you have
to do is hold the save button, and the
desk smartly maps your current height
automatically as a sitting or standing preset.

Does it have a
collision sensor?

Yes, the built-in piezo sensor allows
the desk to detect obstructions and
prevent accidents.

“The craftsmanship is phenomenal.
I love the zen-like tech as well.”

Great desk. Even better work companion.

ADVANCED PRODUCTIVITY TECH

The desk helps you take effective breaks
exactly when your brain needs it.

Your brain goes through biological rhythms that determine your energy
levels. These rhythms are why you
feel great in the morning and sleepy
in the afternoons. The desk maps
them by forming a daily energy graph using circadian and ultradian patterns, sleep data, age, and gender, and then modifies it based on your work patterns which are captured by the desk’s sensors.

This energy graph helps the desk find your healing windows.

Maps your
Energy Graph

The brain has specific times during the day when it needs to rest and recover in order to function properly. These healing windows allow the brain to replenish its energy and clear out metabolic waste. If we do not allow the brain to take advantage of these healing windows, it becomes overworked and fatigued due to an excess of stress hormones. The desk identifies these healing windows and alerts you to take a break, allowing your brain to rest and recover.

Finds your
Healing Windows

When you take breaks during healing windows, the stress doesn’t build up and you’ll feel great throughout the day. The desk not only helps you perform at your best it also reduces the long-term negative effects of stress on your health.

Lowers your
stress levels

I’m just looking for a standing desk.
Do I need this tech?

Many of our customers buy the product because they love the
design and build quality. But they always find the productivity
tech invaluable once they start using it. This is also because
its value goes beyond work. Customers often tell us that they
have energy left at the end of the day to spend time with their
children and partners.

Plus, the productivity tech adds little to the price. The Charcoal
Desk costs what it does solely because it's a super high-end
standing desk that's manufactured to very high standards.

Taking breaks at the right times is the
key to working at your absolute best. When you recover when the desk
reminds you, you prevent the buildup
of stress hormones and allow your
brain to replenish fuels. This is how
your brain is designed to be used.

NO MORE AFTERNOON SLUMPS
Your brain on
calibrated breaks

Taking breaks at the right times is the key
to working at your absolute best. When you
recover when the desk reminds you, you
prevent the buildup of stress hormones and
allow your brain to replenish fuels. This is
how your brain is designed to be used.

The science isn’t new,
the tech is.

Does this have everything I need from a typical standing desk?

Yes. The features expected from the best standing desks are the ability to save presets, an integrated collision sensor, and high-quality three-stage, dual-motor columns that are fast and noiseless. The Charcoal Desk has all of these, along with unparalleled build quality brought to life in an award-winning design.

How is the crystal acrylic better than a wood/laminate top?

- Solid wood scratches and chips off easily, and its varnish will fade over time, resulting in a worn or aged appearance. These issues make solid wood furniture less durable and less visually appealing in the long term. In contrast, crystal acrylic is an exceptionally strong material with a shore hardness of D94, which makes it highly resistant to wear and tear. Its clear finish will not fade, ensuring your desk looks as fresh as the day you bought it.

- Solid wood requires a lot of maintenance, as it can be affected by factors such as sunlight, temperature changes, termites, moisture, and spills. In contrast, crystal acrylic requires no maintenance at all and can be used freely without worrying about these issues.

- Crystal acrylic has an incredible texture. It feels so much softer under your hands than wood. It’s a much better surface to work on if you work for hours at a time.

What’s special about the Linak DL6 Plus motor & standing column?

A standing desk’s most important components are the lifting columns, which house the motors. Nearly all standing desks in the market have lifting columns that are made in China and these aren’t nearly as good as Linak’s columns, which are manufactured in Denmark. Chinese columns tend to have shorter lifespans, create more noise during use, have slower switching speeds, and potentially lower weight capacities. (Linak can take up to 300 lbs).

Can I assemble the desk on my own? Will I need additional tools?

Yes, it’s easy to assemble the desk by yourself. The process should only take around 15 minutes and all the necessary tools are included with the desk. You won't need any additional equipment like screwdrivers or drill machines. However, you will need another person to help you flip the desk upright after it has been assembled.

What is the Red Dot Award?

The Red Dot Award is the most prestigious design award. It’s awarded to the most aesthetic and innovative products in the world. The Charcoal Desk won the award in 2021.

Other than the US, where else do you ship?

Presently, we only ship to USA & Canada. We are working on launching the product in parts of Europe and Asia.

How do I know if it will work well for my height?

If you’re anywhere between 5 feet tall and 7 feet tall, it will work for you. There are no standing desks in the market with greater range. The desk can switch between 560 mm at its lowest and 1200 mm at its highest.

Can I save my preferred height?

Yes. The desk allows you to save and recall presets.

Will I need to buy anything else for my wire management?

Every purchase includes a custom-made wire management tray that helps you manage your wires neatly. It’s been a huge hit among our customers!

How do I reach Charcoal for support?
