This is where a sit+stand desk, such as the Centro Lift, can make a difference. “There are many mental and physical benefits to standing desks – both in work and school environments,” said Bill Becker, BDI’s Design Director and CEO. “The Centro Lift desk combines beauty and functionality with its unique design that also serves a greater purpose. The new Centro design joins the Sequel Lift Desk in BDI’s line of ergonomic office products that support consumer demand for furniture that promotes a healthier lifestyle.”
Standing during the workday is known to boost productivity and energy levels, and also has the health benefits of lowering blood sugar levels, reducing back pain, and helping burn as many as 170 more calories a day. But standing too long has its own health challenges, which is why the ideal solution is a height-adjustable desk.
Designed by Matthew Weatherly, the Centro Lift Desk can be raised and lowered between 24.75” and 49.75”. With the touch of a button, the motorized desk adjusts to the user’s preferred height – seated, standing or anywhere in-between. The programmable digital keypad controls the powered leg system, and can set up to four user-programmable presets. Centro Lift is also available in two desktop sizes: Model 6451 measures 60”W x 24”D and Model 6452 measures 66”W x 30”D to support various workspace needs.
Other key features of the Centro Lift Desk include:
- A grey micro-etched glass top, which offers a smooth, durable fingerprint-resistant work surface
- The digital keypad can be installed on the left or right of the desk for user preference
- An integrated cable management system and wire management ledge keeps cords organized and out of sight
- Optional storage drawer, with model 6452 only, helps keep office essentials within easy access
