When paired with the ultra-sturdy Fly Deck monitor shelf—an option available exclusively on the Ensign—you also get extra storage space and raised monitor height ergonomics. Available in seven shapes from 41″ to 59″ in width, 28″ in depth and with either a straight or curved front edge, this designer desk is built on iMovR’s state-of-the-art, American-made Lander Lite lifting base backed by our industry-leading 15 year warranty.

The Ensign's Standing Desk
In conceiving of the Ensign’s Desk, iMovR's lead furniture designer, Vincent Leman, sought to blend classic Scandinavian design elements with a state-of-the-art lifting base. The result is a stand-out piece of fine furniture, not just an ordinary standing desk like you’ll find anywhere. With a gorgeous wood grain that is similar to a maple pattern, the distinctive yet familiar 12-ply edge treatment is what we associate with prized Scandinavian design.
As compared to all our other solid wood desks which feature a more traditional look (1.25″-thick), the Baltic designer line features an intentionally more modern, thinner and sleeker appearance (0.7″-thick), yet while offering even better rigidity and stability due to the multi-ply nature of the Baltic birch wood’s construction. Particularly if you live in an area with high variability of moisture and temperature, nothing beats Baltic birch for resisting warping or cracking over the decades.
The optional Fly Deck is an exclusive feature of the Ensign’s Desk, designed especially for users who prefer to use a shelf for their monitor or all-in-one computer (e.g. iMac) rather than a monitor arm. The ultra-sturdy 10″ × 41″ × 4″ Fly Deck is rated to 300 lbs. of centered weight, and finished throughout to the same heirloom quality as the desktop work surface. Adding the Fly Deck also creates all the extra top-side storage you can need.
The Elegance, Strength, Durability, and Sustainability of Baltic Birch
Emanating from the northeastern region of Europe around the Baltic Sea (chiefly Russia and Finland), Baltic birch plywood has long been prized by the world’s finest cabinet makers for its strength and consistency. Many high-quality musical instruments, such as guitars and percussion are made from Baltic birch.
Its core is completely unlike traditional plywood you might find in lumber yards or big box stores. The layers of inner plies are 1 mm-thick solid birch veneer, cross-banded, and laminated with strong adhesive. It’s a recipe that results in a void-free core with a number of distinct advantages over other desktop materials. We use only the top grade (B/BB) of Baltic birch to make our desktops.
Beyond its gorgeous maple-mimicking aesthetics, Baltic birch is incredibly strong and stable. Compared to natural hardwoods of the same or even much greater thicknesses, it is far less susceptible to flex and movement over time and with changes in temperature and humidity. Furniture makers love Baltic birch for its uniformity, which allows for precision joinery and impressive durability.
Baltic birch is also sustainable, growing to maturity more quickly than many of our native, North American species. It takes less than half the raw wood material to make a desktop that looks like maple yet is much stronger and more stable, making it a "greener" option. It’s also a much safer material than the cheap plywoods that flood the market from China and other countries, which are unregulated and, more often than not, glued together with toxic glues you would never want in your home or business.
Choose from nine gorgeous custom-blended stains or just the natural, unstained finish. We use only GREENGuard-certified, formaldehyde-free stains and sealants in the meticulous hand-crafting of these desktops, to give them a shimmering gleam and protect the beauty of the wood for many years to come.
Built on a Premium-Quality Height-Adjustable Base
The Ensign’s Desk is proudly engineered and manufactured in the USA. Innovative advancements like a built-in health coach and Bluetooth-connected app make your transition to a healthier work life easier than ever before. With commercial-grade ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014 certification and an industry-leading warranty, you’ll enjoy the confidence of knowing your desk was built to last.
Intuitive Height Control Paddle with Built-in Health Coach
The Ensign’s Desk’s height control paddle makes it the easiest desk in the world to use. Simply tap twice up or down to adjust the desk to your next height favorite. Want reminders to stand? Its built-in coach will gently remind you to stand at intervals you can set, either by flashing the LED in the paddle, sending a push notification to your phone, or both. Studies have shown a 117% increase in standing time by activating the health coach feature.
Smartphone App Unlocks Advanced Controller Options
We are continuously working to enhance the app with additional features to help you maximize the health benefits of your Ensign’s Desk. With seamless Bluetooth connectivity you can remotely raise your desk, set up to four favorite height positions, establish custom reminders to stand (with optional push notifications), and more, all without touching the desk! Great for hot desks and shared spaces.
Quiet and Reliable
The Ensign’s Desk can heft up to 225 lbs. while you can hardly hear the hushed motors. Some electric desks use fast but noisy motors, while some use slow but quieter motors; only the iMovR’s adjustable bases can lift this much weight at a blazing 1.6 inches per second and be this quiet. The Ensign’s Desk is available in both a single-stage (two-segment leg) or dual-stage (3-segment leg) XT version. Average-height users can save by selecting the single-stage base, while extra-tall and extra-short individuals will want to opt for the dual-stage for its wider height range. The dual-stage version also offers improved stability at the higher height settings.
Fully-Assembled in Just Minutes
Every other standing desk you can buy entails tackling a DIY assembly project or hiring an installer. And there’s always the risk of an assembly error or one failed component that keeps you from enjoying your new desk. Why risk the hassle? The Ensign’s Desk comes factory-tested and 90% pre-assembled; you’ll only need to attach the feet to the legs with four screws each, using the supplied Allen wrench.
This is a NEAT™ (Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) certified product; its usage will help combat the negative health effects of a sedentary lifestyle. Standing while working is the first line of defense against sitting disease, as the small movements you make throughout the day while standing increase your body’s energy expenditure and heart rate.
Customize your Ensign's Desk
Choose from dozens of size, color, and height configurations, as well as a plethora of matching accessories to customize your desk to ergonomic perfection.
Choose your Desktop's Front Edge Shape:
The front edge of the Ensign's desk comes in your choice of a traditional straight edge or an elegant curved edge.
Add the Fly Deck:
Exclusive to the Ensign's desk is the Fly Deck, a versatile shelf that sits 4″ above your desktop surface. With some all-in-one computers and larger display monitors, the Fly Deck can be a more stylish alternative to a monitor arm, and its 41″ width gives you lots of space for other peripherals as well. The Fly Deck supports up to 300 lbs. of centered weight.

Choose the Finish for the Bottom of your Desktop:
The darker the desktop stain relative to the natural color of the wood, the starker the contrast between the top and bottom of your desktop. We offer three options for finishing the bottom of your desktop:
- Standard Sealed Bottom: Sprayed with two coats of finish to seal and protect the wood from environmental changes. May show wipe marks from artisan's hand-staining along the edges. Note: Darker stains on lighter-colored woods will show the greatest color variation between top and bottom.
- Spray Toned Bottom: In addition to standard sealing, the bottom is spray-toned with a stain color similar to the final finish of the desktop. Not as elegant as hand-wiping, but provides better color consistency between the top and bottom as compared to standard sealing. May show occasional wipe marks carried over from hand-wiping the top. A practical choice for masking the color contrast on lighter-colored woods with darker finishes.
- Heirloom Quality Bottom: Fully-finished to the same superior standards as the top of the desktop. Hand-wiped stain completely eliminates color contrast between top and bottom for all wood options. Keep in mind the most visually-striking side of the wood slab is always selected for the top surface. While the bottom may show a few more minor imperfections, the stain is exquisitely hand-applied on both sides. The most elegant option for matching the top and bottom of your desktop.
Choose your Base Color:
Choose from black, white, or silver base finishes to match your office décor.
Choose your Base Model:
Select the standard single stage base (27.35″–47.5″) or upgrade to the dual stage XT base (pictured) for a wider height range (24″–50″) suitable for shorter and taller users.
Choose your Standing Mat: Sit Less, Stand More, in Comfort
Take care of your feet and get the most out of your new standing desk! A good anti-fatigue mat means more hours standing in full comfort, by reducing strain on your back, legs, and feet. iMovR EcoLast Anti-Fatigue Mats are made from 100% polyurethane material and won’t lose their bounce or curl up at the edges like cheaper mats. 100% made-in-America, these mats come with a five-year full-performance warranty, and are completely recyclable.
Choose your Monitor Arm:
For the best ergonomics, you’ll always want to keep your monitor(s) at the proper height, distance, and angles. Monitor arms make moving your monitors easy, so you can find the right monitor position whether you're sitting, standing, or ‘perching’ at your desk. They help keep neck and eye strain at bay, and ensure you work in optimal comfort at all times.

Take a Seat
The best regimen for maintaining health and productivity is to change positions throughout the day. When you need to take a seat at a sit-stand desk, iMovR offers ergodynamic office chairs. The Neemo Ergonomic Chair (shown) has incorporated superior everyday, basic ergonomic elements while remaining eminently affordable. The McHale Advanced Ergonomic Chair is both beautiful and ergonomic with an innovative lumbar suspension system that will conform to the shape of your back while encouraging active sitting to keep your core engaged. If you need something that can rest safely on top of a treadmill take a look at the Tempo Sit-Stand Stool or the Tempo TreadTop Office Chair.
Manage Your Cables
Keep your cables safe and organized and your new desk tidy with a Tucker™ Cable Management Kit. These kits are easy to install, and include a variety of versatile and reusable components to allow you to easily reconfigure your cable bundles time and time again. Most users will want to opt for the Pro Kit with Cable Chain for Adjustable Desks, which includes a height-tracking link chain with a full array of mounting and routing essentials for device and cable protection, including a 12-foot, 6-outlet, under-desk surge protector and capacious cable tray. With the surge protector in the tray and the cord cleanly routed through the cable chain, you'll have a tidy, professional-grade cable management system in no time, and the flexibility to position your new desk as close to or far from the wall outlet as you want.
Choose your Power Management Options:
Bring power to the top of the table. Pairing perfectly with the Ensign's Desk, iMovR now offers the Rondo Micro, designed to fit perfectly in the 1.75″ grommet holes of the Ensign's Desk. The Rondo Micro is available with a number of different modules providing a selection of AC outlets and USB outlets in both Type-A and Type-C. Choose up to three units to give your desk the power management it needs. This is ideal for shared workstations where users may want to power their laptops or charge their mobile devices, without having to bend down and search for a free outlet along the floor.
If you desire cable cleanliness and routing off of your desk top, we also offer the Rondo Micro Pass-Through Grommet with Cover (no power) as an accessory for the Ensign's Desk.
iMovR's entire line of power management products are proudly made in Michigan using superior quality components and have been designed to be compliant with all electrical codes across the United States.
Make it Mobile

These caster wheels screw into the recessed threading on the feet of your desk. Just remove the leveling pads, screw in the casters, flip your desk back over—and you’re good to go! Lock the casters when you find an ideal spot for your desk and unlock them when you want to glide to a different one.
