Anyone who works from home knows just important a good desk is. While tons of desks are available on the market, the UpWrite is fully adjustable between sitting and standing, and it comes with a whiteboard surface. This means users can jot notes down as they work without worrying about ruining their desktop.
Standing desks are becoming more and more popular for their ergonomics, but not all users will be ready to jump in to standing 100 percent of the time, and that's where a desk like the UpWrite can be rather handy. Because it's adjustable, a user can stand when they want, but if his or her feet get tired, a quick adjustment and a chair is all that's needed to let them take a load off. The desk adjusts from 25.5 to 50.5 inches (64.77 to 128.27 cm), and it's powered by an electrical lift system.
According to its creators, this is actually the first height-adjustable whiteboard-topped desk. Whiteboard desks are great for any job where you need to jot down ideas that don't need to be there forever. The Whiteboard portion works with both wet and dry erase markers, which leaves it open to some flexibility.
Some other useful features of the UpWrite are its cable management channel, ability to work with a treadmill, and strength to hold up to 300 pounds (136 kg).
The overall dimensions of the desk are 60 inches wide by 30 inches deep (152.4 x 76.2 cm). The desk is available now for a retail price of US$1,149.
