Where are your desks made?

Our desks are built by hand in our Grand Rapids, Michigan facility. The desk actuators (pneumatic and electric lift) are designed and made in Germany. The steel for our desk is sourced in Switzerland because it has the highest tolerance or strength. of any steel type.
Check out our reviews to see what users had to say.

What are the work surfaces made of?

The 1.15″ thick worksurfaces come in 5 classic Formica laminate colors. We picked Formica for its durability and long life. The substrate is a recycled wood particle board that will not bend or warp like solid wood tops.
For smaller spaces go with the Andern Pneumatic or Andern Electric with a 40″ wide top.
If you want a large setup go with the Luften, Kloud, or Oben and a 60″ wide top.

Can I attach a keyboard tray, floor mat, etc?

Yes, the keyboard tray should be no issue. There are pre-drilled holes for the control handle but you can mount it anywhere under the work surface to make room for your keyboard tray. We have several keyboard trays installed in our office.
As for floor mats, most come in 36″ x 48″ or smaller which will work with all of our desks.
Most other accessories will work.
The Luften and Andern desks have a front leg spread of 48″

What is the total desk weight?

The desk base weighs around 60lbs.
The larger 30″x60″ work surface weighs around 60lbs.
Total weight = around 120lbs.

What is the setup or reset process for electric desks?
