The Evolve - Modern Adjustable Standing Desk featuring the Jarvis Electric Base

$ 1,995

The next great step in work life: the Evolve modern standing desk.  Made thoughtfully to energize you at work with modern design, beautiful materials, and standing desk ergonomics. The Evolve features solid hardwood construction, the Jarvis electric, adjustable desk base, integrated cord management, and joyfully smooth drawer slides.  The Evolve is beautiful in design & function.

The desk is available in a number of sizes and materials.  The desk is finished on all four sides, so the Evolve can be used in open concept office spaces.  Works nicely as a reception desk.  The Evolve features integrated cord management, keeping your beautifully simple desk tidy.  

The integrated keyboard tray is optional for the Evolve.  The standard Evolve design is optimized for standing or perching on a taller chair.  If you plan to sit (especially at a task chair with armrests), the integrated keyboard tray will allow an ergonomically correct sitting position (reads, the desk won't rub your thighs).

The Evolve desk body is made with care along Lake Michigan's South Shore (near Chicago).  The desk body is expertly crafted in solid walnut, cherry, quarter sawn oak, or maple.  The drawers can be ordered in your choice of color and are made of solid wood & baltic birch plywood.  The desk is carefully protected with a combination of traditional and modern finishes.  Traditional beauty with an environmentally friendly waterborne clear-coat.  

The Evolve desk will arrive in two sections.  The desk body will ship from Rocket Mission's home in the Midwest & the Jarvis electric desk base will ship from the Pacific Northwest.  The Evolve desk body is pre-drilled to make attaching the Jarvis desk base a snap.

Ships free in the continental US.

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 rush desk orders if absolutely needed, but requires a rush fee to pay our workers for overtime!

The usual questions.

  • How long will it take to get my desk?

    That depends on the desk.  If you really need a desk now, you can order the desk you want and select the option to order a temporary top.  We'll send the temporary top ASAP along with the base so you can get up and running in no time.

    Otherwise, the Response Desk ships within days.  Hardwood Slab desks a little longer.  Slims, Evolves, and our other desks all are cut, crafted, finished, and packed per order - we make exactly what you want.  That takes a little longer.  Check out lead time page to see how long things are taking right now.

  • How is the desk finished?

    We use a combination of traditional furniture finishes and modern furniture finishes.  Combining artisan beauty with modern technology.

    So, we hand wipe stains, we use traditional shellac to bring out the natural beauty of wood, and we seal it all with a protective, smooth, beautiful, low-VOC, water-based urethane finish (it's pretty awesome).

    If that doesn't suite you, drop a line - we can finish your desk with Rubio Monocoat if you prefer a hand rubbed oil finish.

  • Which desk base should I choose?

    This depends on the desk and you.  A couple of the desks (The Evolve, E2, & Michelle) require an extended range desk base to give you a full range of heights.  So when you order one of those - we don't give you the option - we automatically send you the extended range desk base. 

    Our other desks give you the option - you can choose the mid-range desk if those height ranges work for you.  If you're a bit shorter or taller - definitely consider the extended range base to give you height flexibility.  When in doubt, get the extended range for the added flexibility.

    Other options are purely up to you.  Finishes are personal taste (though our "humble" designer is happy to help you pick if you need help).  The programmable controller is nice if you don't feel like holding down an up/down button.

    If you still have questions, don't hesitate to ask.  We're a small, personable company and are happy to help.
