SINGAPORE - The team behind local custom PC builder Aftershock PC has launched the Omnidesk, a motorised desk that can raise or lower its height with the push of a button.
The basic Omnidesk model consists of a plain table top (either black or white) with steel legs sturdy enough to withstand up to 130kg. Users can adjust the height of the desk from 60cm to 120cm and save up to four preferred heights that can be easily restored by pressing a button.
All models have a depth of 76cm, but users can choose between two sizes of 120cm or 152cm long. The more expensive Omnidesk Pro model is slightly curved at the front for better ergonomics.
According to Marcus Wee, co-founder of Aftershock PC and Omnidesk, standing desks have become popular in offices in recent years. "We want to revolutionise the way people choose their desks and let them construct their personal work and play space, as if they were building an Aftershock PC from ground up," he said.
The company sells a range of add-ons for the desk, from monitor arms for multiple screens to a computer mount that attaches a desktop PC to the desk leg. Buyers can also choose the finish of the table top, from bamboo wood to a textured coating similar to that of a mouse mat.
The Omnidesk comes with a three-year warranty for the mechanical parts. Prices start at $630 for the basic model. Pre-orders start now (https://theomnidesk.com) and the desk is expected to ship in two to four weeks' time.
