Humanscale Float Table

item#: HUS608

The Humanscale Float Table is the next generation in height-adjustable desks. The Float Desk is named for its ability to nearly "float" into position when moving up or down. It does this with easy, one-hand counterbalance weight adjustment, without electricity, and without a cross beam, freeing up valuable leg space. Along with nearly-effortless sit-to-stand height adjustment, Humanscale Float Tables also offer the safety of a constant-force mechanism and lighted indicator which only allows adjustment when the desktop and its contents are counterbalanced properly.

Optional Keyboard Tray

An ergonomic keyboard tray is an excellent accessory for your height adjustable desk, and the Humanscale Float Keyboard Tray has been specifically designed for use with the Float Table. Its specially-designed platform, track and mechanism allow for full storage under your Float Table's desktop, even with a 24'' depth top. The streamlined mechanism design features the standard 15° of negative tilt found in all Humanscale mechanisms, but removes the independent height adjustment from the keyboard tray mechanism, instead allowing you to use your Float Table's height adjustment capabilities to adjust your keyboard tray. The Float Keyboard Tray comes in black or white, and also lets you choose between foam, gel or slim gel palm rest.

  • HUS403~B~F: Black with black foam palm rest
  • HUS403~B~G: Black with black gel palm rest
  • HUS403~B~S: Black with black slim gel palm rest
  • HUS403~W~F: White with gray foam palm rest
  • HUS403~W~G: White with gray gel palm rest
  • HUS403~W~S: White with gray slim gel palm rest

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The counterbalance mechanism on the Humanscale Float Table makes it a breeze to alternate between sitting and standing, which of course helps to promote blood flow and thus increase productivity. It also makes for a safer height-adjustable desk, preventing the possibility of injury that can come with incorrect counterbalance. And the Humanscale Float Desk does all of this without one of those obtrusive support beams that can get in the way of your leg space.

Sleek and Flexible
August 5, 2015
I can't recall who first introduced me to this desk, but it was on my wish list for a long time as a necessary ingredient for my "dream" home work space. And when a local store was getting rid of their floor model of a 2' x 4' model of white top on white base, the exact color combo I wanted, I snatched it up as the first step toward my goal. At first I used the desk as an additional work surface in an office with a traditional sit-down desk, and experimented with using my computer on the high vs the low surfaces. Over the last year I gravitated toward using the Float Desk more as an island, occasionally popping laptop off of its dock to do some work, but I prize the desk mostly for NOT having a computer on it, and letting me spread out what I was working on. Now that I have installed a wall of (perfectly coordinating) white Elfa solid white shelves (including a row of deep shelves at my ideal working height) I can have my computer and assorted office tools at standing height, (or lower, on lower shelves) and the float desk can be moved to be a peninsula addition or as an island, depending on my mood and need - and of course I can lower it when I want to sit and put my feet up for a bit. And did I say that this combination of white Elfa with white Float Desk makes for an awesome custom-look office?
It has a fresh, clean modern look. I like the low profile of the legs, unlike the massive look of the bases of some of the other adjustable-height desks on the market. The big pro is that it is mechanical - no cords involved! One less thing to break down! Lets you put the table anywhere you like, even in the middle of a room (which is where mine is right now). It comes with feet that reverse from a shiny metal side for carpeted floors, and a softer felted side for use on hard floors.
Cons are few, and mostly if you aren't familiar with the way the lift system I'll clue you in. When you push the lever to allow the table to float up, or to allow you to press it downward, be prepared that the action will vary wildly depending on how much weight is on the table. If nothing heavy is on the table, it can pop up and surprise you and require an unexpected amount of effort to push it down. If you have something heavy on it already, the action is more sedate going up, and you have an assist in pressing it downward. I also wish it came with locking casters instead of just plain feet, because I'm a big fan of rearranging my work-space to suit the type of project I'm doing...and cleaning under things thoroughly. And I wish there was a built-in spot for the little metal tool that lets you adjust the tension in the hydraulic apparatus.

Love the table but assembling it was tough for me. The instructions call for several sizes of hex bits.

One of the best home office purchases that I have ever made. I work from home and this "desk" is so easy to adjust for a sitting or standing position that I change it several times a day. My back says "Thank you!".
