Aluminium case maker Lian Li enters the furniture market with the introduction of two standing desks. These desks have a particle board body with a fake leather-like top, and legs made from a combination of iron plus aluminium.
The special feature of these tables is that they feature an electric motor that allows you to adjust their height. The DK-12 model has a 1400mm x 750mm surface and is adjustable in height from 695mm to 1185mm. The DK-16 is a larger version, it has a 2100mm x 800mm surface and is adjustable in height from 705mm to 1185mm.
Earlier this year, Lian Li showcased the DK-04 standing desk computer chassis. Unfortunately, these new models do not allow you to build your computer into the desk.
Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd is excited to launch its DK-12 and DK-16 motorized standing desks. Following the success of the DK-04 and earlier computer desk chassis, Lian Li adds a pair of more conventional standing desks to its repertoire. The DK-12 and DK-16 provide health-conscious users a stylish workspace designed with PC workstations in mind. Who better to make a desk for a PC than a case maker?

Many vaunt standing desks not only for health benefits, but even boosting productivity. With everything to gain and nothing to lose, why not start standing?
A Standing Workspace for Serious Workstations
Like the DK-04, the DK-12 and DK-16 are both height-adjustable desks with an automated electric motor. Users can save up to four height settings from 69.5cm to 118.5cm using a small control console on the front of the desks. The robust motor lifts up to 120kg on the DK-12, while the heavier DK-16 is rated to lift up to 80kg. The DK-12 is the smaller of the two desks, stretching 140cm long and tapering 70-75cm wide, while the DK-16 is a longer 210cm and 75-80cm wide. Each desktop is 3cm thick.
A Desk Designed with PCs in Mind
The DK-12 and DK-16 have convenient features for organizing the inevitable mess of cables that clutters everyone’s desk. Two circular cable pass-throughs with metal covers help route and manage cords. A shelf under the desk can hide and store cables and power bricks. The shelf does not obstruct mounting monitor arms with clamps – the DK-12 and DK-16 are compatible with most monitor mounts and support multiple-display setups.
Solid Construction and Desktop Materials
Each desk uses a leather-like waterproof surface on a wooden frame mounted to an aluminum base. The desktop is contoured to better surround the user while standing or sitting close to the front edge. The exceptionally sturdy legs are made from high-quality steel, reliably supporting heavy hardware and elaborate configurations.
