The Albright // Mid-Century Modern Adjustable Sit + Stand Desk

A Modern Classic

With clean lines and light hues, the Albright is the perfect surface for supporting your work - whatever you do. The solid maple table top contrasts perfectly with the refined metal base, balancing functionality with a minimalist work setting.

  • Refined comfort
  • Storage for all of work’s needs
  • Sustained support

ABOUT

Storage for all of work’s needs

Albright has two slender drawers with cutaway handles, providing a convenient place to keep your papers and stationery. The rest of the desk is kept clean and minimal, ensuring you can focus on your daily tasks. Finished on all sides, the Albright is suitable for open concept offices and works as well sitting in a task chair as it does standing up.

Refined Comfort

The minimalist desk is combined with the award-winning Jarvis Desk Base to make moving from sitting to standing, effortless. With an industry-leading lift capacity of 348 lb (158 kg), Albright has excellent stability in both high and low settings.

Sustained Support

The Albright’s programmable handset allows you to swiftly adjust from a minimum tabletop height of 26.75” to a maximum of 52.25”(perfect for average and larger sized people). Recent studies in workplace ergonomics recommend that for every hour, spend 40 minutes sitting and 20 minutes standing. When you're at work (whether sitting or standing), keep your screen at eye level; your wrists are straight and parallel to the desk surface.

THE FINISH

Desk

The Albright is made from solid maple, but can be ordered as a special in any of our solid wood options (will add 2 weeks to the lead time).

The desk case is handcrafted to order in your choice of hardwood finishes.

We finish your Albright on all sides as well as the bottom to ensure the wood is well sealed against changes in your office's temperature and relative humidity.

We use a high-performance, water-based urethane that's beautiful, environmentally friendly, and very durable (passes all KCMA performance requirements).

By special request, the table top can be finished with Rubio Monocoat - a molecular binding coat that is awarded Eurofins indoor air comfort gold standard.

Drawers

Drawer fronts & cord doors can be made in the same finish or a different accent color.

Base

The base is available in black, gray or white.

LEAD TIMES

As each desk is made to order, check https://rocketmission.com/pages/lead-times for more.

We do offer temporary tops to get you by if you need a desk ASAP – that gets you the desk you need now (so you’re not sitting on the couch) while we make the desk you want.

SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability

Recycled / recyclable content

Made predominantly of steel, which is highly recyclable

Air Quality & VOC Emissions

Good - low VOCs, water-based used in lacquer.  Slight odor to the finish for a while as it cures.  If you are sensitive to odors we recommend the Rubio Monocoat.

Wood selection

All solid woods selected have increasing populations (i.e. more wood is growing than is being cut)

Q+A's

Are these desks made to order?

Yes, we handcraft each desk to order, so please allow us time to construct your desk. If there are any time considerations or special circumstances regarding your order, please let us know right away so we can take care of you. We can sometimes prioritise desk orders if requested. This incurs an additional fee to pay our workers for overtime.

Is the back of the desk in the same finish as the front?

Yes! The back of the desk will appear very similar to the front – the idea is to allow use in a range of interiors - whatever setting or space you require.

Is there any assembly required with the desk?

Yes, but it’s extremely straightforward. The desk ships in two separate sections. The assembly level is in line with a flat-pack furniture project with a quick assembly of the frame and then attaching the desktop to the frame with a screwdriver.

How long will it take to get my desk?

As each desk is made to order, check https://rocketmission.com/pages/lead-times for more.

We do offer temporary tops to get you by if you need a desk ASAP – that gets you the desk you need now (so you’re not sitting on the couch) while we make the desk you want.

Can I see color samples?

Yes, we offer color samples free of charge here: https://rocketmission.com/collections/materials

Are you the designer?

Yes, I am – I have been a woodworker since I was a kid (I’m now in my 40’s). I have a passion for art & design and a couple of engineering degrees. My furniture is a mixture of those experiences. I design, and we make everything in our shop in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

What kind of wood is it?

We make the desk bodies out of solid walnut, cherry, white oak, or maple. We use baltic birch plywood for drawer boxes and internal parts (where appropriate).
