The UPLIFT V2 Bamboo Standing Desk
Your desk should rise to the level of the work you do and the goals you're trying to accomplish. Now, you can work at the desk Wirecutter has named the "Best Standing Desk." We've made it even sturdier and more adaptable with innovations in safety, functionality, and design.
We produced our bamboo desktops with you and the planet in mind. Not only is our carbonized Moso bamboo free of pesticides, fertilizers, dyes, and stains, it’s also a full 1" thick. A thicker desktop means added stability and more surface area around the edge of the desk—to show off the beautiful bamboo aesthetic.
Whether you choose the UPLIFT V2 Frame or the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame, you're getting the most advanced sit-stand desk available. Click here to learn more about the UPLIFT V2 Frame and the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame—and to compare the differences between them.

A Desktop That's Durable, Sustainable, and Beautiful
Enjoy your work at an Earth-friendly desktop without compromising.
Moso bamboo—technically a species of grass—is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, which makes it extremely sustainable. It’s harder than solid wood and provides a durable work surface that lasts for years. You'll also be delighted by the beauty of the grain patterns on both the top and edges.
During the desktop production process, bamboo reeds are carbonized, giving you the full and rich color you see. Every desktop varies, depending on characteristics within the bamboo itself. Our darker shade is made by carbonizing the bamboo a little longer.
Choose either a rectangular or curved desktop. Our curved top has an inner edge that carves out room for you to get closer to your work—as well as a shallow bevel to cradle your wrists.

Should I Get the UPLIFT V2 Frame or UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame?
Click here to learn more about the differences between the UPLIFT V2 Frame and the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame.
The UPLIFT V2 Frame has a height range of 25.5" - 51.1" (with a 1" desktop installed). This is our most popular frame: it's remarkably sturdy, surprisingly quiet, and stunningly advanced. And it supports the desk that was selected as the best standing desk by Wirecutter.
The UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame has a height range of 22.6" - 48.7" (with a 1" desktop installed). This frame has a lower starting height, a lower max height, and a larger overall height-adjustment range, compared to the UPLIFT V2 Frame. In addition to meeting ANSI/BIFMA durability standards, it also meets the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard, which is required by many of the world's largest companies.
The UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame supports ergonomic working postures for 5th percentile females through 95th percentile males, in both seated and standing positions.
Add New Capabilities with Desk Frame Mounting Points
Your UPLIFT V2 Frame comes with four dozen independent, patent-pending mounting points to utilize with a growing collection of desk accessories. These holes are discreetly built into the frame, hiding under the desktop and allowing you to maintain a clean, organized look.
We have many frame attachments planned for release, including desk extensions, CPU holders, and power strips—which will let you use your desk in a whole new set of ways. We even offer an under-desk hammock, for those afternoon power naps (available now)!
Please note: the hammock is only compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Frame. It’s not compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame because it interferes with the stability crossbar.
Unlock Advanced Features at Your UPLIFT V2 Bamboo Standing Desk
Reduce time spent holding down buttons by adding our Advanced Keypad to your desk.
Enjoy one-touch adjustments on four programmable memory buttons. Transition to sitting and standing positions quickly and easily, just by selecting your preferred preset. Press a button when you're ready to change work postures, and you'll have the perfect amount of time to move your chair.
Advanced safety features, including anti-collision sensitivity and a keypad child lock, let you work with peace of mind. Your desk will only adjust when you want it to—and if it does come into contact with objects or people, it's smart enough to know to stop.
The desk's maximum and minimum heights are also adjustable.That means you can set upper and lower height limits, preventing your desktop from knocking into shelves above, or file cabinets below, ever again.
An auto-dark LED display helps you maintain focus and reduce distractions in your workspace, dimming the keypad screen 10 seconds after you press a button.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click here for FAQs for our UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame.
- What is the difference between the bamboo you offer and the bamboo offered by your competitors.
While some companies feel okay about offering a 3/4" thick bamboo desktop at a premium price, our bamboo desktops are 1" thick and still beat our competitors' prices.
- Is this a bamboo veneer?
Our bamboo desktops are made from 100% solid, pressed bamboo. You won't find us selling a wood veneer product because we want to offer you a quality item.
- How will my bamboo desktop hold up over time?
Even though bamboo hails from the grass family, it is 40% harder than oak and will provide a strong and durable work surface. At a whopping 1" thick, your bamboo desktop won't sag under the weight of your desktop items even if you decide to go for a 72" wide desk.
- What color is the bamboo desktop?
Our carbonized bamboo desktop can be described as a yellowish-brown honey color. Since each desktop is composed of 100% real bamboo, each will be unique and contain pleasing variations of color.
- Is this 100% solid bamboo, or if I cut it open will the desktop be hollow inside?
You are more than welcome to perform a science experiment and cut open your brand new desktop, but then you wouldn't be able to enjoy your UPLIFT Desk! Instead, just take our word that this is 100% solid bamboo through-and-through that has been pressed together to form a stunning desktop.
- Is there a protective finish on the bamboo desktop?
The bamboo is sealed with a toxin-free clear coat that will help protect your desktop and keep it looking beautiful.
- Your 1" bamboo desktop is almost as cheap as your laminate tops, what's the catch?
Bamboo is a species of grass, and as you know from having to cut your lawn weekly, grass grows at an alarming rate. Therefore the bamboo that is harvested to make our bamboo tops is pretty readily available as compared to our reclaimed or solid wood desktops and we can offer you a beautiful, durable desktop at a low price!
- Does the bamboo scratch easily?
Bamboo is a durable surface, however it is not unscratchable! You will want to care for your desk gently instead of using it as a cutting board in order to ensure years of use.
- Where do you get your bamboo from?
Our bamboo desktops are crafted from Thai and Chinese bamboo.
- How should I care for my bamboo desk?
To keep dust from gathering on your desktop, wipe it down with a microfiber towel. For a deeper clean, all you should need is a towel with warm water and gentle soap.
- Will my desktop crack if I drill into it to mount my desk accessories?
No! Bamboo is a durable material that will hold up well, even when you drill into it to mount your keyboard tray and CPU holder. But please double check that the screws you are using are no longer than 1" thick! We don't want you to accidentally drill through your desktop!
- Will I be able to assemble this desk by myself?
Attaching the frame to the desktop can be done by one person. However, you might want to have a friend's help to turn the desk right-side up after you put it together. Check out our video showing just how easy it will be to assemble your UPLIFT Desk.
