Sola Office Offers Solid Walnut Work Surfaces with Sit-Stand Functionality

CHANTILLY, VA — Nov. 2018 – BDI takes a stand in elegant office design with its newest Lift Standing Desk: Sola. Designed by Matthew Weatherly, Sola is the latest introduction in BDI’s line of height-adjustable sit+stand desks, and delivers a beautiful, contoured aesthetic for the more sophisticated office environment.

The stand-out feature of Sola is its solid walnut work surface. The beautiful, natural walnut grain offers a more transitional feel for office decors, while the lift mechanism, pull-out keyboard drawer and wire management features that come standard offer all the modern amenities needed for today’s work spaces. 

“Our Lift line of standing desks are a growing category in our office division, namely due to our innovative features that make these unlike other standing desks on the market,” said Bill Becker, CEO and Design Director. “Beyond our quality design and engineering, thoughtful features enable users to have an efficient and seamless work environment, with all their technology and workspace needs attended to.”

Sola is designed to raise or lower to any height between 24.5” and 49.5”, and offers an ample work surface that is 59.5” W x 28” D. The smooth lift mechanism located in the sturdy leg assembly is controlled by a digital keypad that allows up to four pre-programmed user settings, helping consumers reach their ideal sitting and standing height with the touch of a button.

Sola’s distinguishing smooth and rounded edges are even carried over to the contoured flip-down, pull-out drawer. “Sola is designed with a more sculptural, organic feel,” says Weatherly. “I also wanted the desktop to have a tactile quality that encourages consumers to touch and feel the surface, while offering premium materials that could be found in more sophisticated office spaces.” 

Other thoughtful design elements include a rear modesty panel for discretion while sitting, and a wire management channel and tray to keeps cords organized and out of sight. A power strip fits into a dedicated space under the desk, offering one convenient location for plugging in equipment, while the pull-out drawer is lined with non-slip material to keep office essentials in place.

A partner Mobile File Cabinet offers space for a printer, files and other office essentials, and is designed to be height-appropriate no matter whether sitting or standing.

Sola is available in solid walnut with a warm, Toasted Walnut finish, and is now shipping to finer retail stores nationwide.
