Air. Nextdesk.

More a work of art than simply a desk, the NextDesk Air top surface is so amazingly thin that it appears to float on air. The world’s thinnest desk surface measures a remarkable ¼ inch. To maximize strength, the Air top surface is laser cut from a solid piece of recycled aluminum. A thin top layer of tempered glass provides stunning visual depth and light refraction.

The NextDesk power lift system brings your desk to life while keeping all hardware elegantly hidden inside the column. With best in class speed at 1.7 inches/sec, a programmable memory system, best in class height range, soft-start / soft-stop technology, it’s no wonder why NextDesk gets the best ratings from leading technology review sites. NextDesk offers stylish finishes and options to make the NextDesk uniquely yours. Create your own custom NextDesk based on your personal style.

Thanks to soft touch convex and concave buttons, there’s no need to interrupt what you’re doing to change your position. Now adjustments can be made by simply feeling the correct button. And once you’ve found that perfect height for sitting or standing, getting back to it couldn’t be easier, thanks to three programmable memory buttons. Perfect for multiple users, a clear LED digital display lets you know the exact position of your NextDesk Air. With 267 different positions, you and anyone lucky enough to borrow your NextDesk Air are sure to find the perfect height for any task.

Every Air features a solid recycled aluminum frame available in five unique finishes. We are often asked why NextDesk chose aluminum when steel is much cheaper. That’s because no other material in the world compares to aluminum when it comes to strength, sustainability and visual beauty. Aluminum is the most abundant metal in the earth’s crust and recycled aluminum uses just 5% of the energy required to make new aluminum, with no change in quality. It has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, it is non-corrosive, and let’s face it, it looks awesome when it’s brushed and anodized.

The greatest environmental challenge facing the furniture industry today is the presence of formaldehyde. The vast majority of desks use pressed-wood products, laminate, veneer or MDF. Although most countries still allow use of these substances, we’ve already eliminated each of them from NextDesk Air and all NextDesk products. We’ve also eliminated the use of solvent-based paints, putting NextDesk years ahead. US based design and assembly allows for tight control and monitoring of how NextDesk is manufactured, ensuring that both our customers and our workers are safe.
