TheFocal Locus Standing Desk Bundle pairs Focal Upright's two most popular products into the perfect standing desk bundle. The Locus Bundle combines the Focal Locus Desk and the Locus Chair at a special bundled price to help you save.
The Locus Desk is extremely functional and well designed. It combines high quality materials (assembled in the US), with a design that fits the human body better than the traditional rectangular desk - thanks to features like a curved front edge, tilting table top (up to 15º), built-in cup-holders - and customizable additions, like a monitor shelf and cable management.
The Locus Seat is designed to keep you in an upright and active position, and promote movement. Instead of the traditional "Ergonomic" chair, the Locus Seat puts your hips in an open 135º, to keep your hips and back loose, with naturally tall posture. The locus seat also allows you to sway and move, keep your body active and your core just slightly engaged. A foot rest and anti-fatigue mat are built in, making it comfortable and easy to go from sitting to standing.
Movement: Never stop moving - even when you "sit"
The science is very clear: excess sitting and a sedentary lifestyle deteriorate health and shorten life-span, and even an hour-a-day of exercise isn't enough to counteract the effects. To be truly active and healthy, you have to maximize your non-exercise activity. Pair the Locus Seat with your Locus Desk, and you now have the ability to move and stay active for ALL hours of your work day.
The desk is the perfect size. It was fairly easy to assemble. Best of all, my purchase is something positive for my health. My first day has been great. I found that standing really wasn’t tiring. The cushion is wonderful.
The Locus Desk top looks great. Black Walnut is beautiful stuff.
I'm loving my new desk. It's been 2 days now all set up and using the thing...Thanks so much for everything, you guys are great!
Here are my experiences so far:
1. I feel better - I genuinely feel physically better at the end of each work day. Instead of low backache, I feel stronger from the trifecta of sitting, standing and core stabilization.
2. I feel more creative - Maybe it's because my brother is an architect. He creates buildings that you can touch and walk through. My Locus Workstation can take on the profile of a draftsman's workbench. I prefer the slightly tilted position of the desk as if I was an architect shaping the skyline. Instead, I write, market & sell software (which I happen to love). My newfound workstation makes me feel like creating a-new.
3. The transition from sitting-to-standing is quicker - This might seem like a minor nuance benefit. It's not. The ability to quickly jump up and walk around or change positions quickly is like Usain Bolt (he's really fast) running a tenth of a second faster in 100 meters. It's bad ass. The result is that you get up more often to move around. Instead of sitting stagnant for an eight+ hour workday, you move about more often.
I am an absolute fan of my Locus Workstation!
Born with Ehlers-Danlos-Syndrome, I suffer from various joint pains. The Locus Workstation provides me with a desk that is fully adjustable to a perfect ergonomic setup. This way, I can comfortably work on my computer for a very long time. Gone is the time where I would get up from a regular office chair feeling stiff with back pain or numb limbs. Sure, this is not a cheap desk, but what a great investment!
