A Standing Desk with Style

June 8, 2012

Standing desks are on the rise in the tech world (Facebook started using them when employees complained of lethargy), but most are low on the design quotient. Except this one.

Ohio furniture’s David Pierce has come to the rescue with the Adler Table, which takes “its cue from machinist tables built at the turn of the century,” he says. Made with hand-rubbed gun blue finish steel legs (a process that creates a black/blue patina finish and protects the raw steel against rust), the table can range in height from 27 to 42 inches, making it easy to change positions throughout the day. For more information, go to Ohio Design.
