Quick-Install Standing Desks

imovr lander lite

Do you need a quick-install standing desk? When it comes to the prospect of assembling a standing desk we find that our readers generally fall into two camps:

  1. People who love a good DIY project, have the proper tools, and wouldn’t dream of paying for someone else to assemble their desk, and…
  2. Everyone else. This includes people who dress nicely for work, who don’t have the patience or technical skills for an “IKEA project,” and those who don’t have the proper power tools to make the job go faster.

If you fall into Group 2, these desks are for you. The rest of you dudes can go check out our DIY section and learn all about the best bases and desktops to use in constructing your ultimate standing desk.

Out of all those desks there are only a handful that you can assemble in under 20 minutes, and fewer still that’ll assemble in less than 10. Our full roundup of quick-assembling standing desks breaks them down from quick to even super fast.
