Hover Lite from DeskMakers is a budget-friendly and versatile sit to stand desk solution.
Workplace ergonomics research has shown that changing posture throughout the day is one of the most beneficial actions people can take as they work. We are always glad to see new improvements in products that promote healthy ways to work. Whether working at home or reconfiguring your office for the post pandemic return, Hover Lite offers a great opportunity to make a creative, positive change with health benefits.
DeskMakers’ Hover Lite is the latest innovation in sit to stand desk solutions. Simpler and easier to use, this adjustable height desk line is the ideal budget-conscious solution when compared to the current sit/stand desk alternatives in the industry. Offering the same award-winning features as Hover, Hover Lite’s simplified design allows for quick setup, near effortless adjustability and a lighter footprint – all at a lower price point.
How has this product evolved since it was originally introduced?
While this is a new introduction for DeskMakers, we are using a similar design to 2016 Best of NeoCon winner Hover, value-engineered to provide a lower-priced solution with similar benefits. It’s a simpler kit of parts, but still features the same clean lines and modern design people come to expect from DeskMakers.
Does Hover Lite support agile and activity-based workplaces that are becoming so prevalent in new and refurbished facilities?
Hover Lite allows end users to transition for sitting to standing with the push of a button, keeping them active throughout the day. Studies have shown that standing while working, even for just 30 minutes at a time (four hours a day or more) can have a major impact on your health and body, including greater concentration and productivity, as well as reduced pain, discomfort, and fatigue.
Can you give an example of how this product will help our readers design and implement great workplace solutions?
Hover Lite’s versatility extends beyond price – to fabrics, finishes and the ability to integrate with other products. Offered with a variety of options including two height-adjustable bases, multiple digital controls, wire management selections, and three electrical beams to choose from, Hover Lite is a versatile solution that complements any space. While Hover Lite can be specified as a freestanding unit, it’s ideal when used as part of a configuration for open-plan spaces. The collection easily integrates with the entire DeskMakers and Scale 1:1 line to match virtually any scheme.
