What are Biomorph desks made of?

Biomorph takes pride in using high-quality materials for our desk and table surfaces. Our surfaces are manufactured from MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard), a recycled wood product that offers exceptional rigidity, strength, and precise finishing. The surfaces are a 3D Laminates that offer superior impact resistance, abrasion resistance, and chemical resistance. Our 3D Laminate profiles feature a durable MDF core and seamless construction. This means components are water resistant and free of seams and joints that expand or contract with seasonal humidity.

Alternatively, we also offer surfaces made from maple plywood, a premium furniture-grade plywood with a revealed edge and a genuine blonde maple face.

At Biomorph, we prioritize durability and longevity.  Typically, our larger desk and table surfaces have a thickness of 1″.  We understand that color choice is important, which is why we offer finished surface samples in all available colors upon request.

With Biomorph, you can trust that our desk and table surfaces are built to last and provide a visually appealing and functional workspace for your needs.

Why do the maple plywood surfaces vary?

Biomorph values the natural beauty and unique characteristics of maple plywood. It is a strong and high-quality furniture-grade plywood with a revealed edge and a genuine blonde maple face that is finished with our clear lacquer. It’s important to note that inconsistencies, color changes, and the grain of the veneer and edges are inherent features of natural wood and are not considered imperfections.

Each desktop is crafted from a distinct sheet of plywood, resulting in variations in color and grain from one desk or surface to another. This adds to the individuality and charm of each piece. Additionally, natural maple veneer can undergo color changes over time, particularly when exposed to sunlight. Environmental factors such as dryness or humidity may cause small splits or textural changes in the grain. It’s essential to understand that these natural occurrences are not eligible for warranty claims.

We celebrate the organic nature of wood and believe that these characteristics contribute to the allure and uniqueness of our products.

What should I know about assembly and installation?

When you purchase Biomorph desks, tables, add-ons, and chairs, assembly instructions are included with your order. These instructions will be sent to you upon purchase and are also available online on our Downloads page.

Most of our products come with their own assembly tools, such as allen keys. However, for certain tasks like mounting surfaces or opening larger crates, a power screwdriver or a power drill with a phillips bit may be required. It is recommended to have these tools on hand during assembly.

If you need any assistance during the assembly process, we are here to help. You can reach us at 888-302-3375, and our team will be available to provide guidance and support.

Additionally, we offer an installation service for an additional charge. This service includes delivery, assembly, and removal of packaging materials, which is highly recommended for larger or commercial installations. If you are interested in this service, please contact us for a quote.

Will Biomorph desks reduce repetitive stress injuries (RSI)?

Biomorph desks provide a healthy and ergonomic alternative to static and non-flexible workstations. The adjustable surfaces offered by our desks address concerns related to neck and back strain, repetitive stress injuries (RSI), and discomfort, ultimately enhancing productivity.

Research and reports have highlighted the benefits of incorporating standing and an active workstyle into daily routines. Working while standing promotes better posture, reduces the strain on the neck and back, and can help alleviate the negative effects of prolonged sitting. By offering adjustable surfaces, Biomorph desks empower users to switch between sitting and standing positions, enabling them to maintain a more dynamic and health-conscious workstyle.

The ability to adjust the desk height and find the most comfortable and suitable position for each individual contributes to a better ergonomic setup. This, in turn, reduces the risk of developing musculoskeletal issues and helps prevent productivity loss caused by discomfort or pain.

At Biomorph, we recognize the importance of promoting an active and healthy work environment. Our adjustable desks provide the flexibility needed to accommodate different working preferences and promote well-being in the workplace. By embracing an active workstyle with our desks, individuals can experience the ergonomic benefits associated with standing and reap the advantages of improved posture, reduced strain, and enhanced productivity.

How do I adjust the desk from a sit to stand position?

We take pride in offering height-adjustable desks across all our models, providing you with the flexibility to customize your workspace. Depending on the desk model you choose, you’ll have various options for adjusting the height of your desk surface to meet your individual needs and preferences.

Our desks feature electric-powered height adjustment, allowing you to effortlessly raise or lower the desk surface with just a touch of a button. With the precision control of the electric mechanism, you can easily find the perfect height that promotes comfort and productivity throughout your workday.

In addition to height adjustment, some of our desk models offer dual surfaces, meaning each surface can be independently adjusted to different heights. This feature allows you to create an ergonomic setup that suits your specific requirements, whether you need different heights for multiple monitors or prefer a sit-stand configuration.

To explore the detailed specifications of each desk model and its specific height adjustment mechanisms and features, we recommend referring to the product specifications provided for each individual desk. These specifications will give you a comprehensive understanding of the customization options available for that particular model.

Our commitment to flexibility and ergonomic functionality ensures that our height-adjustable desks cater to a wide range of preferences and requirements, empowering you to create a workspace that supports your well-being and productivity.

How much weight will Biomorph desks withstand?

Biomorph desks are constructed with durable and robust steel frames, ensuring their strength and stability. The desks are designed to support heavy load-bearing surfaces, allowing you to comfortably accommodate your equipment and work materials.

The weight capacity of our desks varies depending on the specific model, with some models rated to handle up to 400 lbs (181 kg) of equipment without difficulty. These weight ratings demonstrate the desks’ ability to withstand substantial loads and provide a reliable workspace for your equipment.

To ensure high standards of quality and performance, most of our desk frames are BIFMA rated. BIFMA (Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association) is a recognized industry standard that sets guidelines for the durability and safety of commercial furniture.

However, it’s important to exercise prudence when loading your desk and placing equipment. While our desks are designed to handle heavy loads, it is always advisable to consider the weight distribution and placement of equipment for optimal stability and safety.

By choosing Biomorph desks, you can have confidence in their sturdy steel frames and heavy load-bearing surfaces, providing you with a durable and reliable workstation for your equipment and work materials.

How do you calculate how much space is necessary for the desk?

At Biomorph, we understand the importance of efficient space utilization, and all our desks are designed with specific footprints to maximize the use of available floor space. The footprint refers to the actual area occupied by the desk and the user when the desk is in use. Use our Design Guide to help find the perfect desk for your specific needs.

You can find the footprints for each desk model on the ‘specs’ tab provided for that particular model. These footprints provide you with precise dimensions to help you assess how the desk will fit within your workspace.

Our corner desks are specifically designed to fit into corners or can be placed at a 45-degree angle to a wall, allowing you to optimize corner spaces and create efficient workstations. This design feature helps make the most of your available space while providing a comfortable and functional workspace.

For linear desks, they can be laid out in a way that is space-efficient for doubles, trios, or quads, accommodating multiple users or creating collaborative work areas. These desks can be freestanding, giving you the flexibility to arrange and configure your workspace according to your needs.

If you require assistance with space planning for multiple unit installations, our Biomorph Custom Solutions Service is available to help you. This service provides personalized guidance and expertise to help you optimize your space and create an efficient layout that meets your specific requirements.

At Biomorph, we are committed to providing not only ergonomic and functional desks but also solutions that make the best use of your available space.
