desk

4 out of 5
  • Built like a tank and doesn’t wobble, even at the highest height setting.
  • Relatively easy to put together – took maybe an hour.
  • The mesh on the underside of the desk surface is great for all the various cables I need to hide.
  • Controller is responsive and Bluetooth-enabled (allowing you to control the height from the command line!).
  • Ten-year warranty

A bit pricey, but I’m loving it so far. Give it a look if you’re in the market for a standing desk.


Thanks to a WFH stipend from TWG, I finally replaced my decade-old desk with something a bit nicer. Some quick thoughts:

  1. The IDÅSEN is built like a tank and doesn’t wobble – even when set to max height. I’m told this is uncommon with a lot of standing desks.
  2. Being able to control my sit/stand desk via the command line has proven to be both useful and nerdy fun!
  3. Even as someone who is fully bought-in on the benefits of switching between sitting & standing regularly, I’ve been surprised at how much of a difference it’s made — particularly now that it’s easy.

Highly recommend this model, if you’re in the market.
