Research from Harvard* found that sitting all day can increase the risk of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer. While your job may require you to work with a laptop or computer regularly, a standing desk can help you reduce the health risks of sitting too much. Besides that, working while standing can also help to boost your productivity as your mood and energy improve. With an extensive variety of standing desks available in the market, which then is the best standing desk in Singapore? In our Best of Home series, we have curated the latest Best Standing Desks in Singapore, providing quality recommendations to suit your lifestyle and budget. For the ultimate work experience, check out office chair and gaming chair recommendations.
Best Standing Desks in Singapore
1. EverDesk Max
Great value-for-money ergonomic standing desk
The inventors of the wildly popular ErgoTune office chair have come up with a winning formula for standing desks – the all new EverDesk (a massive upgrade from the previous ampDesk). Both EverDesk Max & Lite feature an extensive range of space-saving add-ons to help with anything from desk organizing to ergonomic enhancement. These features are provided to help you in developing healthy desk habits to increase your productivity, mental state, and energy level. Simply put, the EverDesk is an incredible desk that allows you to take control of your life, health, and work.
The new looks of the EverDesk are lovely – you can choose between the classic engineered wood, gorgeous natural wood, or the unique Wildfolks collection. We opted for the natural wood collection with aged darkened walnut as we absolutely love dark wood furniture, though the Ecuadorian Dark Walnut (Samanea Saman) from the Wildfolks looks pretty incredible!
UniGroove™ workspace organiser
Talking about wires.. it feels pretty irksome when you see messy wires all over the place, and that’s where EverDesk comes in to help. What we love about the EverDesk Max is that it has additional functions and accessories to aid with cable management.
UniGroove, for instance, is a notch towards the edge of the desk that allows users to organize unsightly desktop wires. Additionally, the groove functions as a phone or tablet holder. Do also get the cable tray to stow your plugs and cables in one place, hidden from sight. If you hate desk clutter, the EverDesk Max has places for each of your knick-knacks.
Maximum comfort with Health Coach™
Working from home might result in significant issues to your health since home workers pretty often suffer from back and muscular discomfort. To reduce these aches, the EverDesk Max is equipped with useful features like the Health CoachTM and an extended height range. This health coach gently nudges users to get up at intervals, so you’ll know when to take a mini stretch break to achieve healthier work habits. Furthermore, the desk can go either a full 10cm lower or 4cm higher than most tables, ensuring perfect sit, stand, and stretch comfort regardless of your height.
We also highly recommend getting the float monitor arm or freedom monitor arm. This useful arm allows you to adjust your monitors to just below your eye level so that you do not strain your neck too much if your monitors are placed too low.
Anti-collision systems with great stability
EverDesk’s GyroAxis anti-collision system, which uses the most sensitive sensors in the market, can detect obstacles when moving up or down to prevent any collisions. Even at maximum height, you won’t have to worry about your desk as it has a T-shaped column design that distributes stresses equally over the frame and legs for optimum stability and zero wobbles.
What we love about EverDesk Max:
- Made with exceptional materials with rigorous testing
- Ultra-quiet and very stable
- Health Coach for healthier work habits

2. Omnidesk Pro 2020
Customizable and ergonomic standing desk built with quality materials
The Omnidesk Pro 2020 features signature table tops made from the highest grade MDF wood and cured with a specially formulated powder-coated surface. What separates it from the rest of the pack in terms of furnishing is this micro-textured powder coat surface made for mouse tracking, enabling the desk to function as a giant mouse pad. Omnidesk has also engineered the perfect ergonomic curve for a superior standing desk experience. With a perfectly angled curve, standing and leaning with forearms on the edge of the desk no longer causes pinched nerves in the long run. Best of all, the entire production process is stringently monitored and tested to ensure that the product is eco-friendly.
Power-packed features with 2020 upgrade
The 2020 iteration features a suite of upgrades that will reimagine your space while maintaining the same aesthetic and functionality that people know and love. The Omnidesk Pro 2020 console comes with four smart memory programmable presets for saving your favorite profiles, as well as a higher sensitivity anti-collision mechanism and a convenient power-saving controller to reduce power consumption.
With the electronic height-adjustable Omnidesk Pro 2020, you can find your ideal sitting or standing position. Electric motors allow you to raise and lower the desk to your exact preferences as well as create memory profiles for different users. They had also revamped the Omnidesk Pro 2020’s desk feet, which now include a pair of specially forged steel legs as well as completely reinforced rubberized feet. This proprietary desk feet can now withstand whatever life throws at them, thanks to a 50% increase in lateral stability. Furthermore, with an all-new custom-built motor, the Omnidesk Pro 2020 is 40% faster, allowing you to get into your ideal position quicker and quieter.
Future-proof ecosystem for gaming and work setups
What we love about this standing desk in Singapore is its extendable frame that fits multiple sizes of tabletops from 42” to 74“. This provides a future-proof ecosystem for future upgrades for larger and new tabletops including gaming and work setups. The Omnidesk has an incredibly huge range of high-quality add ons and accessories, forming an entire ecosystem. These accessories are specially designed and manufactured or curated from the best sources, making integration with your Omnidesk as seamless as possible and also aesthetically pleasing.

Omnidesk Pro 2020 – The WildWood Collection
Customisable, ergonomic standing desk with stunning wood designs
Blown away by the Omnidesk Pro 2020? Wait till you experience the Omnidesk Pro 2020 – The WildWood Collection. Featuring a carefully curated range of premium stunning solid wood tops with meticulous craftsmanship, the WildWood collection provides 3 additional sophisticated designs for homeowners – natural Hevea solid wood, Acacia solid wood, and rich brown Hevea. Personally, we prefer darker wood designs to match our home interiors (think black marble, gold fittings, etc.), and fell in love with the rich brown Hevea!
Power-packed features with 2020 upgrade
With the Omnidesk Pro 2020, its features were improved tremendously from its 2018 predecessor. The useful four smart memory programmable presets allow you to save your favourite height profiles while featuring higher sensitivity anti-collision mechanism and a useful child-lock feature. This definitely helps make it safer when our little one grows up and starts walking around our home! The Omnidesk Pro 2020 also features a 50% increase in lateral stability and 40% faster movement speed, allowing you to get from 60cm to 125cm in a jiffy.
We also appreciated the improved cable management tray as well. What was previously dedicated solely to the 72″ version now fits all sizes, and this allows us to keep all the cables away neatly. If you prefer the Omnidesk Signature Ergonomic curve to rest your arms, check out the Omnidesk Pro 2020 instead. We just simply love the WildWood collection too much!
Infinitely expandable ecosystem for gaming or work setups
What’s great about Omnidesk is that it isn’t just the typical standing desks, but it also comes with a suite of accessories for your desired work or gaming setups. We opted for their Titus premium desk mat for a clean, modern look, and it feels great to the touch! We also highly recommend getting the Arc Stealth Single or Double (we had the double since we have two monitors for better productivity), which allows you to achieve a more ergonomic working position with the monitors flush to your eye level or slightly below. This helps to prevent neck strains, which is really helpful! The Atlas anti-fatigue mat is also great to alternate between sitting and standing positions throughout the day.
The Omnidesk Pro 2020 comes with an extended warranty of up to 7 years in total and has a max load of 130kg. For more affordable options, check out the Omnidesk Zero Electric and the Omnidesk Kenshi for a static gaming desk.
What we love about this WildWood Collection:

Designed for a productive work-from-home experience
Working from home demands us to have a well-structured and ergonomic table to increase our productivity. You can have all that and more with the AdapTABLE Desk ATAS, ensuring a productive work-from-home experience. Don’t worry, even if you are too focused on work, the desk has a built-in sedentary reminder alarm that reminds you to stand up and take a break, promoting a stress-free environment and a healthier lifestyle. After all, sitting for a long period of hours can cause back pain and tight hamstrings, which can be detrimental to your health in the long run.
Moreover, you can customise the minimum and maximum height of this table according to your preference in case of any obstructions that are within the adjustable height range of your table. Its high-end electric height adjustable frames are made specially for heavy-duty use (probably the highest capacity in the market at 150kg) and coupled with the omni-stabilizer frame design, offer superior wobble-free stability at standing height.
Ensures the safety of our little ones
As parents who work from home, two of our favourite features of this standing desk are the child lock safety function and short circuit protection. Children tend to be curious all the time so these features give us peace of mind that they will not get hurt as we work. The desk also features an anti-collision sensor system that detects collision with nearby objects and safely retracts backward to mitigate damages, maintaining a safe environment at home. At the same time, ensuring the longevity of your desk.
Complements the aesthetic of your home
We also appreciate how AdapTABLE offers one of the most diverse range of tabletop options including deluxe laminated engineered wood, solid carbonized bamboo, and various affordable solid wood options. AdapTABLE actually specialises in custom solid wood table tops, so if you want your desk to come in odd shapes and sizes or with functional features like ergo-curve, slopes, or cutouts, just let them know. AdapTABLE also curates solid wood in single slab format, offering a unique centerpiece (no two setups will ever be the same!) for your home, suitable for both dining and work desks. Additionally, you can customise your desk further by selecting your preferred cable management system, handset, as well as other add-ons.
Promotes upcycling of existing table tops
AdapTABLE actively promotes upcycling to do its part in helping to achieve global sustainable forestry, reduce waste and at the same time help users save money. If you already have a desk at home, you can upcycle your tabletop and purchase just the electric height-adjustable frame to convert your existing set-up to a height-adjustable version. All forms of wooden table tops can be easily retrofitted onto their frame. Recycle and save $$$ at the same time, our Earth will thank you!
