FlexiSpot Kana Bamboo Standing Desk: Review
If you are looking for an environmentally-friendly option for a standing desk, then Flexispot has got you covered with this amazing Kana Bamboo Standing Desk.
While there are several outstanding features of the Kana Bamboo Standing Desk, the one that stands out is the desktop material. The standing desk features a stylish bamboo wood finish. As you might already know, bamboo is not only eco-friendly but is also highly recyclable. The wood used to make the desktop surface has a tensile strength of about 28,000 lbs. per square inch, making it one of the most durable desks you can use for years.
Moreover, the desktop surface is coated with a 2H lacquer coating resistant to scratches, insects, and water making it a top choice for regular use. The powder-coated steel tubing also helps keep the moisture away from the frame while giving a stunning appearance to the desk.
The Kana Bamboo Standing Desk features a simple yet elegant design with a clean bamboo desktop finish. The standard desktop size, 48” X 24”, is large enough to comfortably accommodate your PC, several monitors, or your laptop. But if you get the product directly from Flexispot, you can enjoy several customization options, including the size of the desk. Apart from the standard 48” X 24” desktop size, the product is available in three other desktop sizes, including 55” X 28”, 60” X 30”, and 72" X 30” so you can order the size that best suits your space needs.
The Kana Bamboo Standing Desk also offers customization options for the desktop's shape, apart from the size customization. The desktop is available in rectangle and curved shapes. While some users prefer to use a rectangular desktop, others prefer to go for the curved desktop shape as it allows the user to get a little closer to the screen. The curved shape of the desktop also features pre-drilled holes, which allow for improved cable management. Both rectangular and curved desktop shapes are available in varying sizes to best suit your needs.
The construction of this height adjustable standing desk is sleek, stylish, and well thought out. It relies on the use of high-quality materials that ensure that you can use the desk for a long time without worrying about replacing it.
The Kana Bamboo Standing Desk frame features a dual-core motor that ensures a seamless change of height with maximum stability at a push of a button.
You can order the Kana Bamboo Standing Desk with three different motorized frames: the Eco, Pro 2-stage, and Pro 3-stage. Depending upon the motorized frame you choose, the desk can operate between 1.26” to 1.5″ per second and offers height adjustment from 22.8″ to 48.4″. Each of the three different motorized frames can support varying weights ranging from 154lb to 220lb and 275lbs., respectively. All three frame options offer between 20” and 26” of height adjustment between standing and sitting modes.
You can choose between the two frame colors, grey and white, depending upon the model you choose, and opt for one that best compliments your room or office.
The Control Panel
Next up on the general features of the Kana Bamboo Standing Desk is the control panel. The small control panel features buttons for making quick adjustments to the height and is available in basic and advanced versions. The basic keypad allows for simple up and down movement allowing you to transition between sitting and standing.
On the other hand, the advanced keypad features a digital readout LED display that shows the height of the standing desk and the basic up and down buttons. The LED display will also automatically enter the sleep mode, which helps reduce the power consumption when the desk is stationary.
Moreover, the keypad also features three memory presets that allow easy height adjustment and switching between standing and sitting modes. It also has an alert set up to remind you to stand after a set period.
Setting up the Kana Bamboo Standing Desk
Once you order the Kana Bamboo Standing Desk, you will receive the package in two boxes; one contains the frame and the other with the desktop. While the desktop is delivered as a single piece, the frame requires some assembly. The frame is relatively heavy (weighs over 60 lbs.), which also indicates the product's durability.
Using the instruction manual, a screwdriver, and a drill, you can set up the frame in around 30-60 minutes. But, you may need help in assembling the frame given that it's heavy.
While the instruction manual contains everything you need to know about assembling the standing desk, it could have been written more clearly for ease and convenience.
Getting to Know the Kana Bamboo Standing Desk
Many height adjustable standing desks available on the market require manual height adjustment. However, the Kana Bamboo Standing Desk is a motorized height adjustable standing desk that has a simple control panel.
The advanced control panel of the Kana Bamboo Standing Desk features a digital display, along with a few buttons. The two buttons starting from the left adjust the up and down movement of the desk.
Then comes the memory setting buttons that are used to set your desired height. You can even save it to one of the three buttons. All you have to do then is to press 1, 2, or 3, and the desk with automatically adjust its height according to the saved settings. You can save the height by using the M button to enter the memory setup. Once you enter the height, you can choose 1, 2, or 3 to store the setting.
An interesting feature of the desk is that the memory setting is still available even after unplugging the desk. So in case of a power outage, you won’t lose your settings.
Lastly, using the A button on the control panel you can set up the sit/stand reminder with the default time set to 45 minutes. When the timer goes off, the beep will let you know that it's time to change your position. However, you can adjust the time accordingly to ensure that you are not sitting or standing for too long.

It allows you to change the height smoothly but the change of height is not quick enough to derange your desk. So you can be rest assured that nothing on your desk will move as you change the height.
Moreover, since the desktop is scratch and water-resistant, even if you accidentally spill some water, you can enjoy some peace of mind as the desktop is waterproof.
