General

What do we stand for?

Our work and products are humble by nature as we strive for a clean and minimalistic design. We aim to serve our community by improving well being through our well designed products that are well built and made to last.

 

Why do we only use wood for manufacturing our products?

Wood is warm, natural and it is far more sustainable than metals or most polymers.

 

HumbleWorks products may have some imperfections, why is this?

We mainly use natural materials like wood and we celebrate its small natural imperfections. Wood is warm and it's slightly imperfect characteristics resonates with our brand, as opposed to pieces that are mass-produced from plastic, metals or glass.

Our products are designed to last have to pass a very strict quality control regarding materials and functionality, with special attention to detail.

 

Where are our standing desks and laptop stands produced?

All our pieces are designed in London and manufactured just a few miles outside the city.

 

What's the fabrication process of our standing desks and laptop stands?

As we strive to source everything locally, we work with a simple process that includes rapid prototyping and CNC cutting with local manufacturers.

Products

Why does my STAN1 and STAN1.5 need  tension cables?

Our standing desks operate with a cantilever mechanism allowing them to offer  incredible load bearing along the whole structure so you can place your screen or laptop with full confidence. 

Steel suspension cables and pins balance the hourglass form of the stand and contrast beautifully with the organic wood frame and they do this by reinforcing the weight distribution along its centre of gravity. 

 

How to adjust my desk and screen?

Correct desk height and computer screen position are fundamental for improving comfort and minimising injury risk in the office. To begin with, set the keyboard shelf at elbow height; your elbows should be at a 90-degree angle.


As a guide, the average 5’11” (180 cm) person would place their keyboard shelf at a 44 inches (111 cm) high.  As a general recommendation, you may want to position your screen 20–28 inches (51–71 cm) from your face.

Do try to  ensure that the screen is at your eye level in order to avoid tilting your head down.


As a quick reference, the distance should be no less than the distance between the tip of your middle finger and your elbow. The idea is that you should never need to tilt your neck up or down.

Care

How do I care for my Humbleworks standing desk?

  • Scuffs, scratches, marks or blemishes:

If wiping away with a dry cloth doesn't help, a fine grain sandpaper should do the trick.

 

  • Spilled coffee:

The standing desk collection is made from natural plywood and could stain if you spill coffee or dark liquids over them. In the event you do spill liquids over your standing desk; remove all excess liquid immediately and try step 1., i.e., a light sand.

 

  • To prevent any staining, apply a clear protective varnish.

Please follow all instructions carefully and if all else fails, feel free to get in touch with the Humbleworks team, we'd love to help!
