Standing Desk Experiences

Hello everyone,
I am looking to buy a new standing desk for my home office and was looking around for companies that ship to Switzerland. Looking around in the web and subreddits, I had to quickly narrow down my options to IKEA as the other companies commonly discussed (Fully, Autonomous.ai, Jarvis .etc) don't ship to Switzerland.


So, I finally settled (forced to, rather) on the IKEA IDASEN.


I then went on to Galaxus and saw that they offered just the base for almost half the price :-O

3. https://www.galaxus.ch/en/s12/produc...desks-11053762
4. https://www.galaxus.ch/en/s12/produc...-desks-7484362


I'm fine with getting a top separately, from IKEA or just drill holes into a plank of wood from Bau+Hobby etc.

But I couldn't find any reviews about the above other than the customer reviews on the product page.

Would love to hear from people who've used the above or similar products before I finalize the purchase.

Thanks!

Re: Standing Desk Experiences

At work (which I haven't been to in a while), we have Lista Office tables.
They are awesome.


I think there are these:

Re: Standing Desk Experiences

Yep concur with rainder_d, these are great desks - particularly those with discrete cable management too

Re: Standing Desk Experiences

I’ve got the IKEA BEKANT standing desk: https://www.ikea.com/ch/en/p/bekant-...ite-s49282084/

They are really great! It’s electrical, and you can’t really beat the price. The desk is very sturdy
My only issue that 160cm is a bit too large for me in my flat, so I’m thinking of downsizing to the smaller version. Let me know if you’d be interested in a little used standing desk

Re: Standing Desk Experiences

Fully.eu definitely ship to Switzerland.

I have 2 x Fully Jarvis in my home office that I bought a year ago. I bought acoustic separator panels from them about two months ago and they were shipped in a couple of days.

Their customer service is awesome, their desks are awesome. Don't rule them out.

I also have one of these (the 160 cm version), and would agree that it's good value for money. Plenty of room for all the recently-added home office stuff (including a large monitor) alongside my personal IT equipment. My only worry is that one day, the electric motor will conk out when the desk is in mid-journey from down to up or vide versa. It does sound a bit fragile.

Re: Standing Desk Experiences

Choose one with 2 motors (faster speed, quieter) and memory option (convenient for to switch between modes)

I've been stung a lot by companies that ship to Switzerland but I ended up getting dinged a lot of extras for customs, brokerage fees, and other admin fees. Aside from the base price, what did they charge for VAT and customs?

Re: Standing Desk Experiences

Ended getting one from Steelcase. Customer reviews and the 10 year warranty convinced me. Good, sturdy stuff.... :-)

Re: Standing Desk Experiences

hi all.... after nearly 1 year at home office both my desk and the office chair need replacing.

fully.eu seems to have really nice options. I am OK with buying a desk online but skeptical on the office chair

any advice specifically on a good office chair?

Re: Standing Desk Experiences

I went with Steelcase but HermanMillar is also an option. So is IKEA.
Some people also recommended Game Chairs as well :-)

Re: Standing Desk Experiences

I have a Herman miller Aeron that brought with me from the states - I would swear by it. Previously had a 100 cheap amazon chair, and it killed me. But love my Herman Miller Yes - they are expensive, but less than what you would spend at the doctor on back problems.
