The UPLIFT V2 120 Degree Standing Desk
Sometimes, a rectangle is the wrong shape for your desk. The UPLIFT V2 120 Degree Standing Desk gently angles around your body, giving your workspace a cockpit feel and placing more of it in reach. You'll gain a sense of control and comfort as you roll your chair forward into the concave arc of the front edge. Standing at this desk, you might even feel like you're ready to pilot to new heights of productivity and creativity.
This desk doesn't just look and feel "cool," though. Its unique footprint makes it the right choice for building an office desk layout that moves beyond mere rows. Put desks together in multiples of three to make pods; or create a "dog bone" by mixing this shape with rectangular desks. The possibilities are vast.
This 120-degree desk sits on the UPLIFT V2 Frame, which is the frame chosen by Wirecutter as the "Best Standing Desk."

120 Degrees of Versatility
Choosing the UPLIFT V2 120 Degree Standing Desk means working at a desktop that curves around you, allowing you to get closer to more of your workspace. It also means you now have two edges to choose from when mounting monitor arms, giving you even more flexibility when positioning your monitors.
Your desktop is available in two different materials: a 1"-thick carbonized bamboo (which complements the natural, organic curve of the desk) and a GREENGUARD-certified laminate (in black or white). Both are durable desktop styles that you'll love for years to come, made from sustainable materials. And we never use harsh chemicals or agents on our finishes, so you don't have to worry about VOCs.
Not sure about the 120-degree shape? We have a large number of desk options, including a shallow-depth desk, which you can place between two pods of three 120-degree desks for a dog bone layout. Or, check out our comprehensive Desktop Brochure for even more options.
UPLIFT Desk Stands Above the Rest
Your 120-degree height adjustable desk works as well as it does because it uses our award-winning frame design. Both the UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame are built with stability and reliability in mind. They've both been strategically reinforced, to reduce wobble at all heights. And they both come with our patent-pending accessory mounting point system.
- Frames are built with contract-grade quality and passed the ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014 test for durability
- Install accessories directly to any of the 48 integrated mounting points built into the metal frame
- Frames have 3-stage legs that adjust up or down 33% faster than 2-stage legs
- A heavy-duty motor in each leg enables the desk to lift up to 355 lb
- Advanced sensitivity Anti-collision feature stops desk from moving if it bumps into objects
- 7-year warranty on all frame, mechanical, and electrical components
- Motors only produce 50 dB of noise when adjusting the desk height
The UPLIFT V2 Frame vs. the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame
The UPLIFT V2 Frame can raise and lower between 24.5" - 50.1" (without a desktop). Most customers find that this range meets their needs and it goes high enough for use with a treadmill. This is a strong, sturdy frame that adjusts quickly and reliably.
The UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame adjusts between 21.6" - 47.7" (without a desktop). As you may have noticed, that's a lower starting height with a wider range. That's because this frame is designed to meet the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard, which many large corporations have to comply with to support ergonomic working postures for 5th percentile females through 95th percentile males in seated and standing positions.

Add Accessories Directly to Your Frame
Our frames are patent pending for 48 simple reasons: we've added an accessory mounting point system that enables you to quickly attach UPLIFT Desk accessories without drilling holes in your desktop. The mounting points are hidden under the desktop surface, so all you will see when you're working are the rock solid desk accessories (if they're meant to be seen).
We're currently working on a number of accessories that can use these mounting points, including a power strip and a foot hammock (for those days when you need to rest your barking dogs). Keep checking back with us for more updates as they are coming soon!
Added Control with the Advanced Keypad
What's a cockpit without the right controls? As you're making selections for your 120-degree desk, be sure to choose the Advanced Keypad. When it comes to convenience, adjustability, and safety, it's the right one for the job.
For example, instead of pressing and holding the up or down button until your desk gets to where you want it, the four programmable presets give you one-touch height adjustability. Once you set your desired heights, all you need to do is press and release a button.
You can also set new upper and lower limits for your desk height, to keep the desktop from knocking into anything above or below it. If the desk does bump something, it will stop the frame's motion. The Advanced Keypad gives you control over the sensitivity of that feature—and includes a child lock, for an added layer of safety.
As an added bonus, the keypad LED dims 10 seconds after you press a button, keeping the light from distracting you or others.

Height Adjustable Power
We recommend outfitting your desk with power accessories designed for movement. While at a stationary desk, you can just plug devices into the wall; but when you're working at a platform that raises and lowers, you'll want to ensure they don't come unplugged.
That's why we offer power grommets, clamp-on power modules, and surge protectors with longer cords. These solutions give you a place to plug in close by, leaving plenty of slack for the desk to move.
Managing Loose Wires
After you plug your devices in, you'll want to add some type of cable management, for two reasons: it looks much nicer and it helps prevent wires from snagging. If a loose cable gets caught as you're raising your desk, it could pull a plug out or possibly cause an accident.
When configuring your desk, be sure to choose the wire management solution that works best for your setup. To get you started, we're including a wire management tray with your UPLIFT V2 120 Degree Standing Desk.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click here for FAQs for our UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame.
- Will this desk work for me if I need a standing desk workstation with double monitors?
You bet! Our 120 Degree Standing Desk was designed to deliver you an ergonomic (and comfortable) working experience, whether you have one, two, or three monitors. Thanks to a concave front edge, you're able to work in an ergonomic posture, closer to your desk space and your displays. The desk comes with two pre-cut grommet holes in the center, near the back of the desk, so you can mount single or dual monitor arms that way. Or, save those grommets to use for power and cabling and mount your double monitors on each side of the workstation.
- What is the 120 Degree Standing Desk's weight capacity?
- Is this workstation made from a laminate?
Yes, but this is no ordinary laminate table. We make only the most stylish, durable, and eco-friendly laminate desktops you can buy. You can rest easy knowing you’re getting a desk that you'll be proud to claim as yours for years to come.
- Are there any color options for the frame?
Yes, we offer this desk frame in four colors: white, black, gray, and metallic (industrial style).
- Can I order grommets on the workstation?
The 120 Degree Standing Desk comes with two pre-installed grommet holes on the back of the desk. This gives you two places to install bolt-through monitor arms at ergonomic distances. Or if you'd rather, choose a wire or power grommet, and we'll install it on the desktop for you!
- Is this desk suitable for gaming?
Absolutely! The height adjustment of the UPLIFT V2 120 Degree Standing Desk is great for gaming, sewing, crafting—you name it. You gain the option to stand and stretch your legs, increasing circulation throughout your body, which might help you improve your high score and increase your energy for creative projects.
- Will I need more than one person to put my desk together?
You should be able to assemble the desk frame and attach it to the desktop all by yourself. But we do recommend you use two people to safely turn the desk right-side up after assembly. Check out our assembly video to see just how easy it is to put your desk together.
- Can I use the desk accessories I already own on the UPLIFT V2 120 Degree Standing Desk?
If you already own a keyboard tray, monitor arm, or CPU holder, you can add them to your new desk. Just double-check the manufacturer's instructions to make sure that your accessory is compatible with the thickness of the desktop. Keep in mind that the crossbar on the UPLIFT Desk will run across the center of the desk and may get in the way of a keyboard tray or CPU holder. Our Track Spacer solves this problem by allowing your keyboard tray or CPU holder to retract underneath the desk without interfering with the crossbar.
- I live outside of the United States. Will this desk work with my voltage and outlets?
All UPLIFT Desks are designed to run on the US electricity standard of 120V, so if you're ordering from outside the United States, excluding Canada, you'll need to plug your desk into a step down transformer—otherwise you could overload your desk's control box, which is not covered by our warranty. Please contact our team if you have any questions regarding your country's voltage.
- Which version of the control box is on my desk?
It's easy to check to see which control box you have: just take a peek at the silver label on it. If that sticker says v4.1, v4.2, or v4.3, you have the newest version of UPLIFT Desk's control box, which comes with new features!
- What can I expect from the version 4 control box?
We added some exciting new features to version 4, starting with collision sensitivity. You can now adjust how sensitive (from one to three) your desk is to bumping into objects. When adjusting your desk height, if the desktop hits something, it stops and reverses a tiny bit, helping to prevent accidents. Your keypad can lock as well, which makes it easy to keep kids (and adults) from adjusting the height of desk (when activated). You'll also be able to toggle quickly between one-touch and constant-touch modes; you decide whether you prefer to hold down an arrow button or press it once. And you can switch your keypad display between inches and centimeters.
- Does this desk come with a 3-stage frame?
Yes, all UPLIFT Desk frames are 3-stage—versus the traditional 2-stage desks on the market today. That means our desks adjust heights 33% faster, as a result of using three spindles in each leg instead of two. This also means you have a higher range of adjustability. Our desks fit users from short to very tall—or those who plan on adding a treadmill to their setups later.
- What is a dual-motor design?
All UPLIFT Desks feature a dual-motor design, which means that each leg gets its own motor. That makes UPLIFT Desks quieter to adjust, stronger, and more reliable—and safer than desks with a single motor. You can rest assured that your UPLIFT Desk is the most technologically advanced height adjustable desk you can buy today.
- Does the workstation always have to be plugged in, or can I unplug it?
The UPLIFT V2 Standing Desk Frame should remain plugged in at all times. Its low-draw power supply reduces its electricity consumption.
120-degree desktops are perfect for flexible offices and can be arranged into groups of three or more with a variety of configurations.
