We’ve made selecting a small standing desk converter as easy as adjusting the height.

Sleek. Simple. Stylish.

The design of the Clover Electric Sit Stand Workstation rises above the rest. The height is seamlessly adjustable to suit taller users while maintaining stability.

No assembly is necessary. Though we recommend the bolt-through feature, you can choose between that and the clamp.

A comfortably sized work surface of 700mm x 500mm is the perfect medium for smaller workspaces where minimalistic style meets maximum output.

And for those that like to be kept on their toes? This beautifully designed desk converter features its very own software. The software aims to create further awareness and control of posture and balance.

Why It’s Great

  • Sleek yet stable design

    Kangaroo Pro Sit-Stand Desk (Best Portable Solution)

    Kangaroo Pro Sit-Stand Desk

    We love that this desk requires the absolute minimum installation. That is, no drilling or clamping and therefore a much more portable small sit-stand alternative. 

    But how stable can it be then? The Kangaroo Pro Sit Stand Desk features an additional support leg that fits under the working platform to add steadiness to your standing workflow. 

    The heavy solid steel base provides additional stability while felt pads underneath the base ensure smooth and safe positioning shifts whilst protecting the surface of your desktop.

    The main keyboard platform can easily and quickly leap from sitting to standing height by the use of a gas cylinder or lift, making it easy to adjust throughout the day.

    An additional feature is the ‘stopping bolt’ mechanism, which may be used to easily return to the ideal pre-set standing height after sitting.

    The platform size is spacious and comfortable with an extra 100mm depth in comparison to the Clover – every Joey’s ideal introduction to a world of small sit-to-stand desks.

    This adjustable desktop addition is available in a classic black option amongst other practical possibilities to hide all sorts of paw-prints in a busy home or office setup.
