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."

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 X5.5-2014 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 patent-pending 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 Type is Right for Me?

The UPLIFT V2 and V2-Commercial desks are equally stable. The V2-Commercial desk has a height range that starts at about 3" lower than the V2 and conforms to the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard. The key difference between the two is the height range as listed below:

  • The V2 Desk has a height range of 25.5”-51.1” with a 1” desktop. That’s a 25.6” travel distance. This desk is ideal for users 5'4" to 6'7" tall. Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2 desk to accommodate a 4'10" user.
  • The V2-Commercial Desk has a height range of 22.6”- 48.7” with a 1” desktop. That’s a 26.1” travel distance with a lowest height that's about 3" lower than the V2 desk. This desk is ideal for users 5'0" to 6'3" tall. Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2-Commercial desk to accommodate a 4'6" user
  • Adding casters raises the desk and is a good way to accommodate very tall users. Keep in mind that using an UPLIFT Rocker-X board adds 2.5" to your standing height

The UPLIFT 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 desk legs. To compensate for less overlap, the V2-Commercial desk has thicker legs 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 5'0" to 6'3" tall (5th percentile female seated height to 95th percentile male standing height). With the lower starting height, the V2-Commercial Desk also better accommodates children. Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2 desk to accommodate a 4'10" or taller user, and allows the V2-Commercial desk to accommodate a 4'6" or taller user.

We recommend the use of a keyboard tray with either desk to position the keyboard and mouse so your wrists are perfectly straight and the keyboard tray height is perfectly positioned either lower or higher than your desktop height. The optimal position for your keyboard and mouse is to have your upper arms hanging 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 just above your lap. UPLIFT keyboard trays have 8" of height adjustment and move vertically from 5" below to 3" above the underside of the desktop (without a 2.8" thick track spacer). Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2 desk to accommodate a 4'10" or taller user, and allows the V2-Commercial desk to accommodate a 4'6" or taller user.

  • Auto-Dark Display - LED display will go dark 10 seconds after use

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

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 (pdf) for FAQs for our UPLIFT V2 Frame.

  1. 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.

  2. What is the 120 Degree Standing Desk's weight capacity?

    This desk boasts a 355-pound lifting capacity; but if you need a desk with a heavier weight capacity, check out our selection of 3-leg and 4-leg desks.

  3. Is the 120 Degree Standing Desk compatible with the UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame?

    Unfortunately no, due to the Stability Crossbar interfering with legroom the 120 Degree Standing Desk is not compatible with the UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame.

  4. 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.

  5. Are there any color options for the frame?

    Yes, we offer this desk frame in four colors: white, black, gray, and industrial style.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.
