I live a very active lifestyle, with a love for the outdoors and adventure. However, after graduating from college and picking up a 9 - 5 job, I found myself slipping away from this active lifestyle I loved and falling helplessly into a life of sitting.  

I would sit on my commute to and from work, at the office, at lunch, at home on the couch, at dinner, and then back on the couch. My life was officially consumed by sitting. This left me feeling unfocused at work, tired throughout the day, and with pain and discomfort in my back.

I couldn't take it anymore, so I began searching for a standing desk only to find that they were either too expensive or not easily adjustable from sitting to standing. So I decided to partner with some friends and we set out to make the ultimate sit-to-stand desk.

After 8 months of designing and testing we are excited to introduce, the ERVO Sit-to-Stand desk, the most affordable and customizable sit-to-stand desk that makes switching from sitting to standing effortless. 

How It Works

We added notches and handles to make adjusting the desk effortless.

Packaging Specifications

38" Desk: 44" x 28" x 7", Weight = 40lbs

29" Desk: 35" x 28" x 6", Weight = 33lbs

Split-Level Technology

Our split-level shelf technology allows a monitor and a laptop, or two different sized monitors, to BOTH be at eye level. (Please note that the split-level shelves are only available on the 38" desk and not the 29" desk.)

Our split-level shelves are designed to hold two monitors width based on the following dimensions:

*Note - to support two 22" monitors it is recommended that you slightly angle your monitors inward.
*Note - to support two 22" monitors it is recommended that you slightly angle your monitors inward.

While most 22" monitors will fit on the split-level shelves, we realize that all 22" monitors do not have the same width of 18.7".  Because of this we recommend using monitors that are no wider than 18.7" wide.

Side Hooks that Eliminate Wobble

Each desk surface has a side hook that fits comfortably around the side window of the desk eliminating any chance of wobble and gives you peace of mind knowing that your desk is never going to slide off of the notches.

Easily adjustable

The desk surface has subtle and easy to use handles that make adjusting your desk easy and comfortable.

Extremely Customizable - Over a 100 ways to adjust your desk

The notch system gives you the ability to customize the desk to over 100 different settings.  Move each of the different desks to any of the eight notches along the inside wall of the desk and make it your own. It will fit you exactly how you want it!

Just a few of many ways to customize your ERVO desk.

Will the ERVO desk fit my height?

Yes, to find your perfect height on the desk, measure (while standing) the height of your elbow bent at 90 degrees to the ground.  Then simply find the height on this image to know the perfect height setting for you while standing at your ERVO desk.

These measurements show at what height your elbows would be for each available desk height. The measurement is taken from the ground and is based on your ERVO desk resting on a 29” desk.

Strong Materials = High Quality

After researching multiple types of wood and talking with several furniture craftsman we selected Baltic Birch because it gives a beautiful finish, is light weight, and incredibly strong, allowing the desk to hold 280 pounds without a problem. You will not be let down by the quality of this desk.

Windows

We designed the ERVO desk to have a lot of open space in the back and sides of the desk. This provides easy access when setting up your computers and cords, and also lets in plenty of light to create a more open feel.

Cord Management

We cut out a 2" in x 1.5" in rectangle on each desk to keep your desk clutter free as well as help you manage your cords and to allow them to easily flow between each desk both while using the desk and while moving the desks up and down.

Fits Any Setting

The ERVO desk was beautifully designed to fit any setting whether you have your own office, sit at a cubicle, or work at home. This desk is perfect for every situation.

Wide Desk (38 inches): Comes with 8 different pieces... 2 side walls, backboard, baseboard, main desk, split level desks, and the non-split upper desk.
