ABOUT

Sit and Stand with Ease

Powered by the award-winning Jarvis Desk Base, Gemini smoothly lifts you up in seconds. Gemini remains sturdy when working at height with an industry-leading lifting capacity of 348 lb (158 kg). The programmable handset lets you quickly adjust from low settings for a child to sit to a height for a 6.5ft (2m) tall person to stand.

Ergonomic support

The desk is designed with an integrated keyboard tray, enabling you to sit with a traditional task chair or stand throughout your day. Ergonomic studies suggest that for every hour, spend 40 minutes sitting and 20 minutes standing. When working (whether you sit or stand), keep your screen at eye-level; your wrists straight and parallel to the desk surface.

Combined Storage

The table top offers extensive space for laptops, desktops, and papers. The full-extension storage drawers provide ample room, keeping your workspace free of clutter.

Integrated Cable Management

With an integrated cabling storage area, Gemini allows you to store and hide your power and data. Strategically placed outlets in the desk’s underside and back of the drawers provides the perfect space to keep power strips and run monitor cords out of sight.

THE FINISH

Desk

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

The desk is protected with a beautiful, highly durable, water-based, and low-VOC urethane finish. 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.

Woods 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).
