The Evolve // Height Adjustable Modern Standing Desk with Drawers featuring The Jarvis Electric Base

The Modern Desk, Evolved.

There are few easier and simpler ways of helping to alleviate the daily aches and pains of desk-work than using a sit-stand desk. Evolve is ergonomically designed to support your movements throughout the day with a modern aesthetic - combining natural and refined materials to create a unique desk system.

  • Float into work
  • Support throughout the day
  • A wealth of customizable options
  • Optimized performance


Float into Work

Powered by the Jarvis Desk Base, shifting from sitting to standing has never been easier. With an industry-leading lift capacity of 348 lb (158 kg), Evolve remains comfortable and sturdy when working at height. The programmable handset lets you swiftly adjust from low settings to a height for a 6.5ft (2m) tall person to stand.

Support throughout the day

The Evolve's programmable handset allows you to swiftly adjust from a minimum tabletop height of 29" to a maximum of 54” (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 are straight and parallel to the desk surface.

A Wealth of Options

The desk is available in several sizes and materials. Finished on all four sides, the Evolve works as both an open-office and reception desk. The Evolve features integrated cable and cord management, keeping your simple desk neat and organized.

Optimized Performance

The integrated keyboard tray is optional for the Evolve. The standard Evolve design is optimized for standing or perching on a taller chair. If you plan to sit (especially at a task chair with armrests), the integrated keyboard tray will allow an ergonomically correct sitting position (reads, the desk won't rub your thighs).

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.

Woods Selection

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).
