FlexiSpot, a company focused on designing ergonomic office furniture, offers eco-friendly and practical products for the workplace or the home office.
I tried out FlexiSpot’s smallest size of the Kana Pro Bamboo Standing Desk, and my overall assessment is positive.
According to FlexiSpot’s website, the Kana Pro Bamboo Standing Desk’s structure is designed to ensure stability and safety, with features like anti-collision and child lock.
The desktop is made of elegant natural bamboo that has twice the durability of ordinary wood, and a lacquer coating to help resist scratches, water, and insects.
The legs and structure of the desk are hardy, and it ensures stability even when at maximum capacity and at the highest setting. The powerful dual-motor lifting system allows the desk to change to the desired height at the press of a button.
For workers who like to have a change from sitting down all day at their desks, or simply like to stand at their desk – the Kana Pro Bamboo Standing Desk might be ideal because of its adjustable height.
The set up
It took a few weeks for the bamboo desktop to arrive, and the legs for the desk arrived a week later. FlexiSpot ships their furniture parts separately, so do not be alarmed when you only receive part of your order initially!
The box containing the bamboo desktop was very heavy, but not nearly as heavy as the box containing the legs and the rest of the desk structure (I had to have my housemate help me move the box). A stronger person than me would be able to move the boxes and set it up on their own without help.
Here are five features I reviewed:
The standing desk came with printed image instructions, which were generally easy to follow.
I began by flipping the bamboo desktop upside down on the floor and screwed in the side panels and legs (which were very heavy and I needed assistance with).
The standing desk is electric, so I then hooked up all the wiring and screwed on the button control panel on the front bottom of the desk.
I then flipped the desk right-side up (with help) and plugged it in. It worked on the first try and I was very impressed to see how easily it could go up and down to adjust the height of the desktop.
The standing desk can hold up to 275 lbs. and the height can be adjusted from 23.6″ to 49.2″.
Because the height can be adjusted, you are able to use your choice of chair – or none at all.
My only suggestion is that the desk should have wheels on the legs, because the weight of it makes it difficult to move.
3. User friendliness
The instructions are clear and the desk comes with the necessary screws and one hexagon allen wrench for tightening the screws.
The instructions also call for a drill because some screws need to be drilled into the underside of the bamboo desk.
Hooking up the wiring is simple, as well as mounting the control panel.
4. Visual appeal
With its smooth and polished bamboo desktop, its sleek metallic white legs, the Kana Pro Bamboo Standing Desk gives the impression of professionalism and class.
I ordered the rectangle desktop but it can be customized to order a curved desktop.
When ordering the desk, you are able to customize the color of the legs; the choices are black or white.
Hiding the wires under the desk is slightly difficult though, as the panel that was meant to cover the wires does not seem to fit or line up with the holes for the screws on the underside of the desk and I was not able to install it.
5. Eco friendliness
FlexiSpot gives careful consideration about how its manufacturing choices impact its customers, communities and the planet.
On their website it says, “At FlexiSpot, we are a strong advocate of ‘green and clean’ and take all initiatives to fulfill our corporate social responsibilities. We strive to produce eco-friendly and sustainable products that reduce the carbon footprint in the environment and help make the world a better place for all.”
FlexiSpot has partnered with onetreeplanted.org to plant trees in multiple areas around the world. So far, it has planted more than 500 trees, and will plant one tree for every purchase of its sustainable bamboo-made products on behalf of the customer.
To package every product, it uses recycled materials that minimize the company’s environmental impact by reducing its contribution to landfill waste.
Is it useful?
This desk stands out from other basic office desks because it’s electric, height-adjustable, and eco-friendly.
The desk I received isn’t too large or too small, and it doesn’t take up much room.
But for those who’d like a larger desk, it comes in bigger sizes as well (for a higher price).
The Kana Pro Bamboo Standing Desk comes in four different sizes: 48”x24”, 55”x28”, 60”x30”, and 72”x30”.
Would I pay the price out of pocket? Should you buy it?
The Kana Pro Bamboo Standing Desk is listed at present for the sale price of $499.00 on FlexiSpot’s website.
I personally would not have considered spending this much on a desk. That being said, its quality, attractiveness, and usefulness would make a good buy for many people hoping to set up a more ergonomic and formal home office.
