The easiest way to stay active during your workday

No one wants to sit hunched over at a desk all day, and our electric, height-adjustable desks are the perfect solution to give you a well-needed burst of energy throughout your day. You can decide when you want to stand with the press of a button, and the ultra-quiet, smooth dual motors allow for effortless adjustments throughout the workday.

If you're looking for a practical addition to your home office space that fits seamlessly into most décor styles, this minimalist sit stand desk with a natural oak-style wooden top is a great way to infuse some natural hues into your space. Standing desks have been proven to have an abundance of health benefits. When you're set up with the right ergonomics, standing up regularly throughout the day can help improve posture by putting less pressure on your spine and reducing back pain. You should adjust your standing desk to a level where your monitor sits at eye level and your elbows are at a 90 degree angle with relaxed wrists to ensure the optimum position.

Spending the workday sitting at a desk with no breaks can be detrimental to your health, with studies showing a direct correlation to many negative health outcomes such as increased mortality rates, and a higher likelihood of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Being in a standing position for just 15-30 minutes a few times a day will decrease these risks, and you'll even get the added benefits of increased circulation while improving your core strength and balance. An electric sit stand desk is among the most convenient standing desk options as you don't have to manually adjust them to your desired height.

Styles to suit every taste

Not matter the style of your office space, Artiss has something for everyone. This black sit stand desk is great for anyone looking to make a bold statement with its sleek design. It's got three custom pre-settings to automatically save your desired standing and sitting height, as well as a digital control panel to give you reminders throughout your day for when it's time to stand or when it's time to take a break. If you're after a more sophisticated and modern look, the all white design is the perfect alternative.

Our adjustable standing desk range is available in a number of colours and sizes so you can find the one that fits your space and style. With the dark walnut desk top designed to fit with any motorised desk frame, you can achieve a traditional look that adds a rich colour palette to your office. Mix and match our anti-scratch, easy-to-clean desk tops with white, black and grey frames made with powder-coated metal with adjustable rubber feet to ensure ultimate stability. You can also choose the size of your desk depending on the space you have available, each one spacious enough to keep your essentials and desk accessories in order.

Sit stand desk FAQ

Is it unhealthy to stand for 8 hours a day?

Although stand up desks are great to increase productivity and reduce health problems like heart disease, diabetes and poor mental health, using them to stand for 8 hours a day can also cause problems. Standing for this amount of time with no breaks can put undue stress on your spine. If you're not taking walking or sitting breaks, prolonged standing positions can also cause blood to pool in the legs and feet which could lead to chronic pain or joint immobilisation. We recommend creating a schedule where you switch between sitting, standing and walking, and if you are standing for longer periods ensuring that you are moving from one leg to another often and standing with a soft bend in the knees.

How long should you sit at a standing desk?

It is recommended to alternate between sitting and standing every 30 minutes or so to ensure optimal levels of movement, circulation and blood flow. Experts say you should start out aiming for a ratio of 3:1 sitting and standing, which equals about an hour of standing for every 3 hours of sitting. If you've just started using a stand up desk, aim for increments of 15-30 minutes a day to reduce the risk of injury while your body takes time to adjust to build up to longer stints.

What is the 20-8-2 rule?

This method is recommended for increased movement throughout the workday. It is suggested you sit for 20 minutes, stand for 8 minutes and walk for 2 minutes for a total of 30 minute intervals. This is a great way to create a balance between sitting and standing because it helps to implement a balanced pattern to ensure you don't lose track of time throughout the day and end up sitting and standing for prolonged periods of time.
