About Float

The key to remaining healthy while at work is to alternate between standing and sitting positions. Float makes standing almost effortless and instant. By eliminating awkward cranks and noisy, slow motors, Float removes obstacles that typically discourage the use of height-adjustable desks. Operating Float is as easy as standing up.

Innovative Simplicity

Float’s unique technology allows it to adjust up or down while accommodating changing weight loads. This innovative counterbalance mechanism also makes the table simple to adjust, so the user can always find the ideal height for health and comfort.

Refined Sustainability

Built from sustainable materials for years of dedicated service, Float is a highly durable standing office desk. By incorporating recycled steel and minimal parts, it delivers on Humanscale’s dedication to creating high-performance ergonomic work tools. All Float table tops contain no added formaldehyde.

Intelligent Customization

Float has clean, minimal lines that complement its modern functionality. Accommodating multiple sizes and shapes of tops, Float can easily incorporate into any office or home environment. Ergonomic essentials such as keyboard systems, monitor arms, and task lights seamlessly incorporate into a Float workstation. Its inspiring design also allows for unrestricted space for legs, knees and feet beneath the work surface.

Perfect with no fuss
I purchased the Float desk and keyboard system and could not be more pleased. The height can be adjusted to your liking, and lowering/raising it is very easy and smooth. I purchased everything when I moved to Brooklyn about 6 months ago and so far everything has held up as expected. Highly recommended!

Can't say enough good things
We have 4 of these in our office. Since getting it, I spend about 80% of my day standing now and even have clients requesting to stand instead of sit. I have an electric table at home but I much prefer the float.
