The unique design of theFocal Sphere Standing Desk has completely broken the mold from traditional ergonomics and standing desks - adding a new standard of movement, posture and design - that no other desk can rival. Here's why you need a Focal Upright Sphere Desk (and make sure you choose an active seat to go with it):
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 any of the Focal Upright "Active Seats" with your Sphere Desk, and you now have the ability to move and stay active for ALL hours of your work day.
Let Focal Upright Founder, Martin Keen, introduce you to Sphere - as he designed it...
The Sphere Desk provides an immense amount of desk space - but thanks to it's curved shape, no point of the desk ever extends beyond the reach of your arms. The sphere desk can fit comfortably in any office corner, but is also stylish enough to stand alone in the middle of the room. The Sphere also includes thoughtful features like a tilting desktop, built in cup-holders - and add-ons like the Sphere Monitor Shelf, cable management tray, and built in task light. The Sphere is made of extremely high grade materials, and backed by a strong warranty.
FOCAL ACTIVE SEATING
To understand the foundation of the Focal Upright Active Seat design, imagine yourself floating in outer-space. When your body is free to fall into its natural position, your waist bends at about a 135º angle. And what a coincidence, when you sit (er... "lean") in a Focal seat, your waist bends at that exact same angle - and your back, legs and hips love every second of it!

I was instantly thrilled with how much more active and alive I felt sitting at this new, higher desk with the rock & roll backless seat. I stand up more during my work day and it feels like a welcome departure from being "stuck" in a chair and desk. Thanks again from a very happy customer to have ventured to buy a new, architectural space age work platform.
I love this desk. Setup was easy. Lots of micro-adjustments to get it right, but once I figured it out, I adjusted to standing very quickly.
Standing while working has an odd psychological effect. Instead of being nestled down and stooped over in a chair, I am standing in a command position. Somehow it makes me feel more important and more in control.
For me this desk is a life-saver. I have lots of age-related spine issues, all of which make sitting at a traditional desk very uncomfortable. With the Sphere my posture has greatly improved and my carpal tunnel symptoms have basically disappeared. That's huge!
My wife noticed that there is a carryover into the rest of my daily activities. I am much more aware of my posture and don't slouch nearly as much as I used to.
Overall: The Sphere desk makes my workday much more tolerable. It is beautiful and ergonomic. The Focal team has been uniformly friendly and easy to work with.
Only problem is now my wife wants one too.
