Introducing 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" (pdf) 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."

UPLIFT V2 120 Degree Standing Desktop Selectipon

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-Gold Certified laminate (pdf) (in black or white). Both are durable desktop styles made from sustainable materials that you'll love for years to come. 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 Lookbook (pdf) for even more options.

UPLIFT Desk - Raising the Standard in Standing Desks

UPLIFT Desks are engineered for world-class stability, safety, and reliability. They feature an impressive vertical travel range of over 25.5", fast height adjustment, one-touch operation, and individual drive motors in each leg. Both the UPLIFT V2 and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frames are built with top of the line quality components and precision machining that is built to last. So the desk you invest in today works for you well into the future with our 15-Year warranty. Certifiably sturdy and strong; both frames meet the ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2021 standard for durability and stability.

The combination of one-to-one motor to leg ratio and advanced collision sensors result in an industry leading anti-collision system. Unlike other desk brands, the UPLIFT Desk anti-collision feature works great as the desk moves up or down, and the sensitivity can be adjusted to account for usage differences.

A desk that raises quickly to a preset height with a touch of a button is a desk that you'll use more often to keep moving. Using a desk should be effortless and fun. UPLIFT Desks are equipped with 3-stage legs with a large vertical range to allow frequent sit-stand transitions throughout each day. UPLIFT Desks have a 33% greater height range and are 33% faster than competing desks. Less-capable 2-stage desks have a substantially limited vertical travel range and are considerably slower, which can impact comfort and productivity if the desk doesn't go low or high enough for the task at hand.

The patented accessory mounting point system allows for quick and sturdy attachment of our exclusive desk accessories without the need to drill holes into your desktop. This mounting system adds sturdy modularity and ultimate customization capabilities to your dream workstation.

Both the UPLIFT V2 and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Desks have been awarded top ratings as the "Best Standing Desk" by Wirecutter.

  1. In Wirecutter's 2019-2020 review, they chose the UPLIFT V2 Desk as the "best standing desk".
  2. In Wirecutter's 2020-2021 review, the UPLIFT V2-Commercial desk was given that same honor.
  3. In Wirecutter's 2021-2022 review, UPLIFT V2 Desk was again chosen as the best standing desk.

UPLIFT Desk has also been rated #1 by TechRadar, 9to5Mac, Lifehacker, Business Insider, Entrepreneur, Wired, and many others.

We stand firmly behind the quality of our products. All UPLIFT Desk products come with a 15 Year Warranty.

Which Frame is Right for Me?

Choose between two frame types: the UPLIFT V2 or UPLIFT V2-Commercial. Both are equally stable. The key difference between the two is the height range as listed below:

  • The V2 desk has a height range of 25.3"- 50.9" (with 1" thick desktop). That's a 25.6" travel distance. Fits users 5'4" to 6'10" tall. Or add a keyboard tray to fit users 4'8" and taller.
  • The V2-Commercial desk has a height range of 22.6"- 48.7" (with 1" thick desktop). That's a 26.1" travel distance. The lowest height is about 3" lower than the V2 desk. Fits users 4'11" to 6'5" tall, or users 4'3" and taller if configured with a keyboard tray.
  • The V2-Commercial desk is certified to the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard required by larger companies to ensure desks fit most employee heights.
  • Adding casters raises a desk 2"- 5" inches depending on which caster is selected and is a useful way to accommodate very tall users.
  • Keep in mind that using a Motion-X or Rocker-X board adds 2.5" to your standing height.

For the Desk Nerds, Ready to Geek Out?
The V2 Desk has stability braces at the top of each leg for maximizing stability without the need for a lower crossbar between the legs. To provide the space needed for the stability braces, the leg orientation is inverted with the larger telescoping tube section at the top. These angular stability braces eliminate side-to-side wobble and replace the need for a lower crossbar.

For the V2-Commercial Desk to achieve a 3" lower starting height with a larger overall height adjustment range, the three telescoping leg sections were designed to be shorter and travel farther. Because of this, the telescoping leg stages overlap each other less than they do on the V2 legs. To compensate for less overlap, the V2-Commercial legs are thicker and connected by a lower crossbar. The end result is best-in-class stoutness that matches the award-winning stability of the V2 desk.

The V2-Commercial Desk was developed to optimally accommodate users under 5'4" tall. It meets the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard to accommodate users who are a seated female 5th percentile (5'0") to a standing male 95th percentile (6'3"). We expanded this range to 4'11" to 6'5" as we've found those heights fit our desk well in most cases (for example standing males above 6'3" tall will have a slight decline angle in their forearm while using the desk and can use a keyboard tray if needed). With the lower starting height, the V2-Commercial Desk accommodates short children especially when used with a keyboard tray while seated. Using a keyboard tray brings the working height of the desk even lower, allowing the V2 desk to fit users 4'8" or taller, and the V2-Commercial desk to fit users 4'3" or taller. We also recommend the use of a keyboard tray for any intensive computer users, in order to position the keyboard and mouse ideally, so wrists are kept perfectly straight. The optimal position for your keyboard and mouse is to allow your upper arms to hang comfortably at your sides, with elbows at about 90 degrees, and wrists perfectly straight while typing and mousing. This will usually place the keyboard tray height just above your lap while seated. UPLIFT keyboard trays have 8" of height adjustment and move vertically from 5" below to 3" above the underside of the desktop. They also mount to a track spacer under the desk which is 2.8" below the desk bottom surface.

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).

Power and Wire Management Solutions for your UPLIFT V2 120 Degree Standing Desk

More Power To You

When it comes to powering all of your devices on a standing desk, it's best to utilize a power source that moves up and down with the desktop. Not only is it more convenient to have power outlets within arm's reach, but the risk of plugs pulling out of wall sockets when the desk moves is eliminated. We have many options to choose from, there's the Power Grommet, Clamp-On Power, 8-Outlet Mountable Surge Protector, Wireless Charging Power Hub, and Power Hub with USB. Also, a power strip is included with the Basic, Advanced, and Ultimate Wire Management Kits.

Stay Organized

Our cable management tools help keep the whole office looking clean and organized. Every UPLIFT Desk includes one Wire Management Tray to get you started. The wire tray attaches under the desktop and houses a power outlet strip, cords, and any bulky power adapters in a discreet, centralized location that moves as your desktop moves.

The very popular Magnetic Cable Organizing Channel attaches directly to the frame leg and keeps wires routed discreetly down from just under the desktop to the floor.

Our favorite place to stow cables, wires, outlet strips, and bulky power adapters is inside the Wire Management Modesty Panel. The mesh panel attaches to the back of any size desk and provides a clean finishing touch to your workspace. It's essentially a large mesh pocket with velcro closures. A 29" wide Wire Management Modesty Panel is included in the Ultimate Wire Management Kit, or select a wider Wire Management Modesty Panel.
