Pre-drilled work surfaces will
not be available until mid-June.
This puppy is so new our pre-drilled work surfaces haven’t arrived yet. If you know how to line up a desk on a work surface and pre-drill (pretty darn easy) you can get one before they are on back-build order.
The Recken Standing Desk
The Recken desk is an advanced version of our popular Oben desk. It comes with two strong, quiet motors with advanced collision detection. 3 save positions preset buttons let you find your ideal sitting or standing setup. The adjustable frame fits table tops up to 72″ wide.
Dual Motor Difference
Dual motor standing desks provide stability, high weight capacity, and synchronized movement for heavy setups and users switching between sitting and standing. Single motor desks are for lighter loads, with no need for precise synchronization or high weight capacity.

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″
