Sisu Bamboo Standing Desk

Our bamboo desktops are made from fast-growing, sustainable Moso bamboo, which is technically a grass that acquires a hardwood like character. 

*** This listing is for 1200 x 800mm desks that are in stock and available for delivery in 3-5 working days ***

The reeds are hardened and caramelised to bring out the unique, rich colours that vary from light golden to dramatic shades of honey brown and darker brown like the density bamboo.

Handcrafted in the UK, the gorgeous grain patterns on the top and edges make this one of our most popular desks.

Our bamboo desktops are made with 20mm, caramel bamboo with rounded edge corners and matt lacquer finish. 


Bamboo Standing Desk

Bamboo is sustainable and super fast growing, up to 1 metre a day. The giant species Moso, belongs to the fastest growing plants in the world. It reaches its final length of up to 20 meters within a couple of months. It takes the stem around 4-5 years to mature and acquire its hardwood like characteristics and the caramel colour is produced naturally through the steaming process during production.

Side Pressed Bamboo Desktops

This is where the bamboo strips are positioned vertically and glued together. This creates a narrow line pattern with the bamboo nodes visible in a subtle way as shown in the product images.

Density Bamboo Desktops

With density the bamboo strips are crushed and then glued under extremely high pressure and results in a much harder product. The way the bamboo is compressed often results in small voids and fissures in the surface and gives a slightly open textured appearance that you don’t get so much with side pressed bamboo. Close-up images below showing the small voids can be seen in the additional information tab.

Natural and caramel side pressed bamboo is also available in a 30mm thickness top.  Please contact us for prices. Density bamboo is not available in a 30mm thickness.

All desktops are supplied without pre-drilled position holes. The telescopic frame allows customers the flexibility to position the legs according to personal preference.

We spend one-third of our lives working, which means that our work environment really matters. We were made to move so let your desk help you do that. Bottoms up for a better back and healthier body!


Bamboo Desktop Construction

After harvesting, stems are split lengthways and the outer skin removed. Untreated strips have a light yellow colour (natural), but can be steamed for a light brown colour (caramel). After treating and drying, the strips are ready for construction:

Plain pressed - strips are placed horizontally and glued 
Side pressed - strips are placed vertically and glued and
Density - strips are compressed and glued under high pressure.

The way density bamboo is compressed often results in small voids and fissures in the surface and gives a slightly open textured appearance. Close-up showing the small voids.


Desktop care

As with any natural products, twisting and warping can occur in varying temperature conditions. We strongly recommend that bamboo desktops are not used in environments with air conditioning or positioned immediately next to an active radiator.

Although the lacquer used is robust even these materials can be damaged. To ensure that your desktop provides years of great service please follow the product care guidance:

  • Always use a mouse mat - wear and tear such as constant contact with moving items is not covered under the warranty.
  • Don’t use any cleaning agent that contains an abrasive, ammonia, bleach, spirit or other aggressive constituents like sanitiser sprays.
  • Use a warm, damp and slightly soapy cloth to wipe over.
  • Don’t use any spray cleaners as they can damage the protection of the lacquer finish or use wax, as a build-up can spoil the finish.
  • Special care should be taken not to damage the lacquer finish during the first two weeks of installation.
  • Lacquer can take several days to be heat-proof and up to two weeks to fully cure.
  • We strongly advise placing hot objects on mats rather than the bare top particularly during this time and as a general rule to avoid damage.
  • Particular care should be taken to wipe up spills immediately. If they are not cleaned immediately, a permanent stain can result.

Cable grommets

Cable management grommets help constrain and organise cabling. Two aluminium grommets, one in each corner of the desktop at the back.

Large drawer and pen holder

Lockable Castors

These desks are heavy, so if you want to be able to easily change the position of your desk on a regular basis castors are a recommendation. Set of 4 lockable castors.

Award winning DPG1C height control panel

Cable management trays

A cable tray is a convenient way to get wires and cables neatly stowed. Wire tray and solid metal options with simple under desktop fixings. Wire trays available in black and silver, solid metal in grey and white.
