Easel desk, a sit stand desk with natural birch plywood tilting desktop and the Aura height adjustable desk frame, providing the ultimate in work surface flexibility and ergonomic positioning.

Perfect for artists, illustrators and anyone who spends time working on a flat surface.  Working at a more upright angle relieves neck strain from holding the head at an angle over your work and leads to less neck fatigue. Working at an incline allows a better vantage point, less likely to distort work with perspective issues.

The easel top is supplied untreated so that it can either be left in it’s natural form or finished with stain, paint, varnish, wax, lacquer or anything else that takes your fancy.

The Aura easel desk – designed in-house has a tilting easel desktop with four positions ( 25, 39, 58 and 75 degree angle positions, approximately), two drawers and a detachable ledge.  18mm birch plywood construction using CNC technology*.  Joints are an integral design feature of the desk and show off the beautiful layering of this fast-growing, renewable wood.

We spend one third of our lives working, which means that our work environment really matters. We were made to move so let your desk help you do that!

The Aura height adjustable frame boasts the best stability, at standing height, of any frame in its price range, a lifting capacity of 120kg, a unique pre-assembled telescopic frame, 650mm height adjustment range and an ultra low noise level of less than 39 dB to boot!

Other eco-friendly alternatives include our solid bamboo desk top or if you’re looking for something with aged character the reclaimed scaffold board desk top is a very popular choice.

*  CNC machining is a manufacturing process that involves the use of computers to control machine tools – Computer Numerical Control. A CNC router is basically a large computer controlled drill, that follows lines in a fabrication file to accurately cut each part. Lines in the file coloured differently to indicate that the router should do different things such as cutting completely through the line or engraving on the line.

Desk Accessories

Anti-fatique mat

The Orthomat provides just the right balance between cushioning and foot support for use with a sit standing desk. Beveled edges and a textured underside help create an anti curl finish that sits flush to the floor.

Made from durable polyurethane the mat measures 810mm x 500mm.

Lockable Castors

These desks are heavy, so if you want to be able to easily change the position of your desk on a regular basis castors are a recommendation. Set of 4 lockable castors.

Programmable controller

A programmable height controller with 4 preset heights is available as an upgrade if you’d prefer, rather than the two button up/down controller that comes as standard. Preset height adjustment is achieved by keeping your finger on the chosen preset until the desk stops automatically at that height.

Vertical cable slinky

This cable slinky is ideal for keeping wires and cables neat and tidy. The weighted bottom keeps it rooted to the ground while it's ladder design keeps the cable manager in place and only allows movement in one direction.
