This is a “first look” synopsis on the Terradesk manufactured by the Effydesk company based out of Vancouver, British Columbia. A full review of their line of standing desks is coming soon.
The Terradesk by Effydesk is an environmentally-friendly standing desk option made from 10,854 recycled chopsticks and offered with three different desktop sizes including 47″, 59″ and 70″ widths and a depth of 29 inches. This environmentally sustainable product has a cool butcher-block tabletop finish and offers 20,020 gram carbon storage. We can confidently say that this desktop option is one of the most unique in the industry.
Effydesk offers the Terradesk in three different color finishes (Oak white, oak black and oak wood) and two frame colors — black or white. Effydesk backs its Terradesk with an 8-year warranty which appears to cover only the lifting base. While the online warranty disclosure seems to exclude the desktop, a live chat with a rep from Effydesk revealed that they have a “two year warranty” of the desktop, however they would not put this in writing on the website, so we’re not sure how valid that really is. Given that this is an uncommon process that is proprietary to ChopValue, Effydesk’s Canadian partner in making butcher block out of recycled chopsticks, we would be a little cautionary about the durability of such a product. Effydesk does offer a 30-day trial period on its standing desk, but that’s little guarantee against delamination of the desktop of years of up/down cycling and frame flexing. So if and when we do receive a Terradesk for lab testing this is one of the things we will definitely be looking out for in our evaluation of the material.
