Our Design Philosophy
Our vision for Altizen has always been to create a standing desk that will be an integral and well-loved part of your work day.
We believe that design is more than just beautiful aesthetics. It is about empathy for our users and creating delight when you start using our product. We want you to enjoy all the subtle touches, both visible and invisible, that makes for a great user experience.
That is why we design every Altizen from the ground up for true ergonomics. It’s unlike any standing desk before, or for that matter, any desk before.
What We Mean By True Ergonomics
True ergonomics is the defining feature of every Altizen standing desk. The challenge was to create a workspace that is comfortable and encourages activity, in an office environment that often reinforces sedentary work.
Through a 2 year design process, we pored over every detail with board-certified physiotherapists. A sophisticated motor provides easy adjustment that does not involve pulling or cranking. The 98 degree tilt to our pillar enables optimal screen-eye distance and the 6mm contoured radius of the worksurface makes for comfortable typing. A generously sized worksurface that lies flush with your tabletop means sufficient space for your work tools. Independent screen adjustment helps customise your screen to the right eye height.
Through meeting and exceeding these stringent requirements, Altizen has become the only standing desk endorsed by leading physiotherapists for its ergonomics.
Our Obsession With Beauty and Quality
As standing desk users ourselves, we know the importance of having an elegant standing desk you can be proud of, that will withstand the test of time. That is why we designed the Altizen with contoured edges, creating a beautiful, continuous appearance with no sharp points or pinch points. Each Altizen is designed to be as comfortable and natural to use as possible.
We also selected exceptional materials, including cold-rolled steel, the very same steel used for high-end automobiles. Cold-rolled steel lends superior tensile strength and a smooth, clean surface, which helps elevate Altizen to a new level of wobble-free stability and scratch-resistance.
An Emphasis On Safety and Reliability
Safety is at the forefront of what we do. Our products are present in both office and home environments, each one presenting their own safety challenges.
That is why we ensure that all Altizen standing desks undergo strict safety certifications by the international safety agencies SGS and Intertek. So that you can have peace of mind for yourself and your loved ones.
Reliability is also another non-negotiable factor for us. We subject our desks and motors to a stringent fully-loaded 20,000 times reliability test to guarantee quality and performance that you can count on.
