Humanscale QuickStand and Float Sit-Stand Desks for Back Office

Active Workspace

As we work longer hours and the landscape of the modern office continues to shift, our health and wellbeing while at work are more important than ever.

Finding work tools that adjust to the user, promote spontaneous movement and counter the negative effects of sedentary behavior is key for wellness at work.  The active workspace is a thoughtful new concept that encourages balance, so workers can build more activity into their daily routine for long term health.

The active workspace doesn’t require constant movement, but encourages gentle activity throughout the day to foster health, well being and productivity.


The key to remaining healthy while at work is to alternate between standing and sitting positions.  Float® makes standing almost effortless and instant.  By eliminating awkward cranks and noisy, slow motors, Float removes obstacles that typically discourage the use of height-adjustable desks.  Operating Float® is as easy as standing up.


Quickstand™ makes sit-to-stand easy and portable.  With the ability to move with or indespendently of the screen, Quickstands™ lightweight platform allows the desk to adapt to the user’s changing comfort demands. Unlike other height adjustable solutions on the market, Quickstand™ can effortlessly be moved from one work surface to another.
