OPLØFT – Make your desk height-adjustable

OPLØFT - the 3 key points
OPLØFT - the 3 key points

OPLØFT is a super slim height-adjustable work surface that turns any regular table into a standing desk. This essentially enables you to intuitively change posture and position, to maximize your work comfort. With OPLØFT you achieve all the ergonomic benefits without discarding your regular desk. This makes OPLØFT an affordable and sustainable solution. 

 EASY AND INTUITIVE TO USE

OPLØFT is easy and intuitive to use. Simply push the handle to unlock and feel how the work surface becomes almost weightless. Raise or lower the desk to your specific height, let go and the stepless locking system ensures a stable desk at any height.

OPLØFT - easily adjusted to any height. No cords, electricity or actuators needed

  • "I really like the up motion. Yeah. It is cool. You don't expect it to help you" - Employee, Soho office community
  • “Extremely well-designed. Simple, stable and surprisingly easy to use.” - Frederik Moesgaard, ‎co-founder at TYFC 
  • "Like that feeling. So the light floating feeling. That it is not a big massive table" - Employee, Soho office community

ERGONOMICS

"Sitting is the new smoking" is a statement which is used more and more often. Many of of us sit down way too many hours every day, which over time can result in backpain, neck pain and headaches. The key to avoiding those health risks is varying your working position throughout the day; change from sitting to standing, change the position of your legs, shift the weight from one leg to the other. OPLØFT unlocks a wealth of variety.

DETAILING

We feel comfortable in our office and we created an atmosphere we think is pleasent and presentable. We did not want to compromise with the aesthetics by discarding our tables and replace them with regular height-adjustable desks. We are familiar with all the benefits of a dynamic working environment and good ergonomics, but could not find the right solution. That is why we started developing OPLØFT almost a year ago and we are very pleased with the result. It is important for us to merge Nordic style, quality and intuitive design and we feel the product reflects all of the 3 parameters.

The cross structure lifting system ensures that OPLØFT extends beyound the edge of the desk providing room for your legs when standing. The construction, high quality materials and spring elevation system makes it possible to lean against OPLØFT and unload your legs a bit when needed. OPLØFT handles an applied force of a least 40 kg (88 lbs) providing a similar stability to a regular standing desk.

OPLØFT's spring elevating system provides the necessary force to deliver an almost weightless feel to the lift. No cords, electricity or actuators needed. You simply need to pull the handle and lift the desk to your specific height. When releasing the handle OPLØFT locks at your favorite height.

The sleek design and dimensions of OPLØFT makes it suitable for most professions. OPLØFT weights approximately 12 kg (26 lbs) which makes it possible to move from desk to desk and to store when needed.

Risks and challenges

We are aware of the hard work and knowledge that development and manufacturing takes, and we feel confident to fulfill these requirements. All three team members have engineering backgrounds, and we have years of experience with product development, project management, construction, user involvement etc. from previous projects.

To minimize the risk of unforeseen circumstances and challenges, we have developed and constructed three prototypes, with the final one only requiring a few minor changes before we can start production. We have been in contact with all of our suppliers, and as OPLØFT do not contain any electric or complex components we feel confident that production can start within 3-4 months, ensuring first shipments within 6 months.
