The E2 // Modern Sit + Stand Desk

A Modern Classic

The E2 is a beautifully crafted piece of modern furniture.  With folded miter joints, solid wood construction, and your choice of colors - this is a truly stand-out piece of furniture.  Walking up to your desk in the mornings will be a joy with the E2.

With the cut out leg area, the E2 works just as well seated with a traditional task chair as it does a standing desk.

Features smoothly operating, full-extension drawer slides, a dedicated cord storage area, and an electric, adjustable standing desk base.




Durability as standard

The choices haven’t changed—make your E2 truly yours by selecting your favorite wood, stain, and drawer colors. Waterborne finishes are durable and environmentally friendly. Whatever you choose, this robust, handcrafted piece will last a lifetime.

Move & Relax

Powered by the award-winning Jarvis Desk Base, the E2 glides quietly at the touch of a button. With an industry-leading lift capacity of 348 lb (158 kg), the E2 is perfect for ergonomic working - remaining sturdy and secure when working at height.

Ergonomic Support

The programmable handset lets you quickly adjust from a minimum desk height of 30” to a maximum of 57”(perfect for average and taller people). If you’re on the small side, you may need to raise your seat a little for maximum comfort while sitting. 2020 Ergonomic studies recommend that for every hour, spend 40 minutes sitting and 20 minutes standing. When you’re at work (whether sitting or standing), keep your screen at eye-level; your wrists straight and parallel to the desk surface.

For an even slimmer version, see the Evolve Slim, or add an Evolve File Cabinet for a complete office suite.

The desk case is handcrafted to order in your choice of hardwood finishes.

The desk is protected with a beautiful, highly durable, water-based, and low-VOC urethane finish. By special request, the table top can be finished with Rubio Monocoat - a molecular binding coat that is awarded Eurofins indoor air comfort gold standard.


Drawer fronts & cord doors can be made in the same finish or a different accent color.


The base is available in black, gray or white.


As each desk is made to order, check for more.

We do offer temporary tops to get you by if you need a desk ASAP – that gets you the desk you need now (so you’re not sitting on the couch) while we make the desk you want.



Recycled / recyclable content

Made predominantly of steel, which is highly recyclable

Air Quality & VOC Emissions

Good - low VOCs, water-based used in lacquer.  Slight odor to the finish for a while as it cures.  If you are sensitive to odors we recommend the Rubio Monocoat.

FSC Woods used

All solid woods selected have increasing populations (i.e. more wood is growing than is being cut)


Are these desks made to order?

Yes, we handcraft each desk to order, so please allow us time to construct your desk. If there are any time considerations or special circumstances regarding your order, please let us know right away so we can take care of you. We can sometimes prioritise desk orders if requested. This incurs an additional fee to pay our workers for overtime.

Is the back of the desk in the same finish as the front?

Yes! The back of the desk will appear very similar to the front – the idea is to allow use in a range of interiors - whatever setting or space you require.

Is there any assembly required with the desk?

Yes, but it’s extremely straightforward. The desk ships in two separate sections. The assembly level is in line with a flat-pack furniture project with a quick assembly of the frame and then attaching the desktop to the frame with a screwdriver.

How long will it take to get my desk?

As each desk is made to order, check for more.

We do offer temporary tops to get you by if you need a desk ASAP – that gets you the desk you need now (so you’re not sitting on the couch) while we make the desk you want.

Can I see color samples?

Yes, we offer color samples free of charge here:

Are you the designer?

Yes, I am – I have been a woodworker since I was a kid (I’m now in my 40’s). I have a passion for art & design and a couple of engineering degrees. My furniture is a mixture of those experiences. I design, and we make everything in our shop in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

What kind of wood is it?

We make the desk bodies out of solid walnut, cherry, white oak, or maple. We use baltic birch plywood for drawer boxes and internal parts (where appropriate).
