How lifting column design influences the look of modern office desks

As sit-stand desks become an integrated part of modern office setups, the demand for customisable designs increases. Designers and manufacturers look for systems that are flexible, yet easy to integrate, and offer individual design options, ranging from column shapes to colours and special performance needs.

Grand design plays an ever increasing role in modern office environments. Companies and their employees are looking for furniture that is not only functional but also matches their corporate culture and inspires and aligns with the corporate visual identity.

LINAK® naturally supports this trend, allowing desk manufacturers to stay flexible, utilising the extensive LINAK desk system programme.


Make the shape yours

LINAK® desk systems are made easy to integrate. This allows you, as a manufacturer, to focus on asking: What is my style? What character do I want to add to my desk design? 
The many different LINAK lifting columns come in a variety of shapes and sizes. So whatever style you are looking for, you can have it. Choose from rectangular, round, ellipse or square profiles, in 2-stage or 3-stage versions in either regular or upside down set-ups.

On a more technical level, you have a wealth of options when it comes to individualising your lifting columns. You can add different brackets, add a built-in Anti-Collision™ sensor, or increase the load capacity from standard (800 N/leg) to heavy load (1,200 N/leg).

Show your true colours

The trend is for unique designs, and unique desk designs require unique options. LINAK® products for desks come in three standard colours: black, grey and white. They blend in easily in any desk design.

However, if you want to design a desk with a system in your very own colours, all lifting columns and feet can, of course, also be delivered in your preferred colours.


Have a clean design option

If you are looking for extra clean design options, LINAK offers a selected series of lifting columns in a DL PLUS™ variant. It is currently available for rectangular columns DL5DL6, DL20 and DL21, square columns DL18 and DL19, and round columns DL10DL11 and DL14. With this option, lifting columns have been produced with a special focus on visible details. This design variant gives DL PLUS lifting columns invisible gliding pads and plane edges.


If you would like to know more about LINAK® desk systems and how to merge them with your line of design, please contact your local LINAK office.
