Lander Standing Desk Base
Our most sophisticated and highest-performing base is the Lander. This is the same base that iMovR pre-assembles onto all our Lander Line desks, rated the #1 standing desk by USA Today year after year. Manufactured in America, its industry-leading 15-year warranty reflects the incredible reliability and durability of its precision robotics-built LINAK linear actuator componentry.
Featuring a super-intuitive height control "gesture paddle," Bluetooth connection to a smartphone app, and an extremely sturdy frame, the Lander is our most-recommended base for a DIY project. Its specs are impressive; it lifts up to 360 lbs, travels at 1.6″ per second, adjusts from 23.5″–49.5″ (6" height extenders available), and comes in three colors: white, silver, or black. Use it to build desks from 47″ to 95″ wide.
Lander L-Shaped Standing Desk Base
The Lander L-Desk Base is a 3-leg version of our most advanced DIY standing desk base. It features all the same sophisticated technology as the 2-leg Lander base: a super-intuitive height control paddle, a future-proof Bluetooth connection to a free smartphone app, and an incomparably sturdy frame for even your most ambitious DIY projects.
The Lander 3-leg Electric Lifting Base is made in the USA. Its industry-leading 15-year warranty reflects the incredible reliability and durability of its precision robotics-built LINAK linear actuator componentry. This 3-leg lifting frame supports a main desktop of up to 89″ and a return of up to 59″. With the added third leg, this base lifts up to 540 lbs, while still traveling at 1.6″ per second. It features an adjustment range of 23.5″–49.5″ (6" height extenders available), and comes in three colors: white, silver, or black.
Lander Lite Standing Desk Base
Made in America, its industry-leading 15-year warranty reflects the incredible reliability and durability of its precision robotics-built LINAK linear actuator componentry.
The Lander Lite Base boasts the same distinctive technology advancements and ease-of-use of the original Lander Base, but with "lighter" features and a lighter price. Like its bigger siblings, this base has the intuitive height control paddle to enable smooth, double-tap height changes, the future-proof Bluetooth-enabled controller that pairs with a free smartphone app, and the whisper-quiet motors that the Lander line is known for.
With a lifting capacity of 225 lbs., a travel speed of 1.6″ per second, and your choice of single stage (26.6″–46.75″) or dual stage (23.25″–49.25″) lifting columns, the Lander Lite base will support a wide range of DIY desk builds for the average user. Use it under a desktop from 41″ to 71″ in width, and 24″ to 30″ in depth. The Lander Lite base comes in white, silver, and black.
Jaxson Standing Desk Base
The Jaxson is the first standing desk with revolutionary brushless motor lifting columns for an exceptional price, performance, and reliability. This is the most tech-forward standing desk with features like Bluetooth & NFC, infrared presence sensing, a health coach smartphone app, and high-sensitivity collision detection. We completely redesigned this base to blend in any room. We got rid of the hard angles that make a desk look like industrial equipment, and made every edge rounder and softer. The soft-contoured edges and warm base color finishes match any home or commercial office decor.
The Jaxson base accommodates desktops up to 72″ wide and from 24″ to 30″ deep and height adjustment range of 26.9″–45.9″ (Single-Stage Base) or 21.5″–47.6″ (Dual-Stage Base). The Jaxson base comes in Basalt Black, Starlight Silver, and Alabaster White.
Studio 470 Standing Desk Base
The iMovR Studio 470 Base is ideal for building a compact, budget-friendly standing desk for a studio apartment, dorm room or "hot desk" area for laptop users. Featuring smooth dual-motor performance, precision tolerances, low standby power consumption, and built-in wire management, this electric standing desk base delivers an unmatched value. Compared to other desktop bases, the Studio 470 is light without sacrificing stability or durability, having earned ANSI/BIFMA certification rating for desktop sizes of up to 31.5″ × 63″.
