The Locus Workstation by Focal Upright Furniture is constructed of aluminum, steel, furniture-grade plywood and polymers which offers you the consumer an amazingly sturdy and fashionable height adjustable workstation. This standing desk can comfortably accommodate a person ranging in height from 4’11″ to 6’8″. The desk top is easily raised and lowered; lifting mechanism is rated to 180 lbs. The desk top can be used either flat or angled up to 15º (The coolest height adjustable desk can be used as a moderate drafting desk). Includes a synthetic leather work surface, two cup/pencil holders and cable management clips for the desk leg. Available with a choice of American walnut, white oak or laminate (black or white) desk top. Upgrade includes an LED task light. The desk is sourced globally and assembled in Rhode Island. See Product Guide for complete list of materials.
How It Works
Keep it Green by helping to save our enviornment by selecting Locus Workstation. The lifting mechanism of the Locus Workstation is a simple and elegant German-made system designed to effortlessly glide up and down. Turning the small hand crank on the front frame of the desk drives a series of three hardened steel rods and gears. The gears are self-locking, so the height of the desk won’t slip once set. The one-to-two purchase on the crank gearbox means you don’t have to turn it many times to make your adjustments. The simplicity of the mechanism ensures years of service.
The desk dimensions are:
Desk top: D 30″ x W 48″
Desk dimensions D 30″ x W 50″ x H 36-48″
Desk top can be angled from flat to 15°
The desk can comfortably accommodate a height range of 4′ 11″ to 6′ 8″
The seat dimensions are:
Shortest position: L 37″ x W 25.5″ x H 31″
Tallest position: L 45″ x W 25.5″ x H 41″
Easy fold for storage: L 37″ x W 25.5″ x H 14″
The seat can comfortably accommodate a height range of 4′ 11″ to 6′ 8″ and weight up to 300lbs.
Can the desk be used as a flat surface?
Yes! It pivots from flat to a 15˚ angle. There are adjustment dials on either side of the desk.
Can I use the Locus Seat with a different standing desk?
Yes! The Locus Seat can only be used with upright standing desks. Just be sure the seat base can fit beneath your standing desk.
Can the desk be used with a regular office chair?
No, we do not recommend this. The desk lowers to 36,” which is several inches higher than a typical desktop. We promote an upright lifestyle rather than sitting in a typical office chair.
Can I put the LED task light on either side of the desk?
Yes! The light is installed by you, so you can decide which cup holder to remove and replace with the light base.
Does Focal make a monitor mounting arm? If not, what monitor mounting system do you recommend for use with the Locus Desk?
No, Focal does not currently offer a monitor arm. The monitor mounting arm featured in our desk demonstration video is the Workrite Poise. We use it with one of the arm extensions removed and attached to our fixed shelf (it needs to be attached to a flat surface). It is available for single or double monitors. We can also recommend the Symmetry Office Allure for use with tilted desk surfaces and with single or multiple monitors. For the iMac, Cinema and Thunderbolt displays, we offer our own iMac bracket.
How do my computer cables stay tidy and out of the way?
We recommend the optional cable management tray, which will be available in Spring 2013. In addition, each desk comes with small black clips on the back of the desk leg to guide the power cord down to the floor.
What is the work surface I see in the images of the desktop?
Your Locus desk comes with a slightly grippy synthetic leather work pad. It helps prevent objects rolling off the tilted desk. It is not adhered to the desk and can be removed.
How do I adjust the desktop?
There are two adjustment levers on either side of the desk; these adjust the tilt of the desktop. There is a hand crank in the center of the cross bar that allows you to gently raise or lower the height of the desktop.
What is the difference between the standard EVA seat cushion and the nubuck upgrade?
All seats come with a comfortable EVA closed-cell foam seat cushion. The standard seat has a choice of three colors: black, chili pepper and citrus. If you want to upgrade to the nubuck cushion, you will receive the EVA seat cushion upholstered in a synthetic nubuck. Nubuck is a very soft, sueded synthetic leather.
How much does the workstation weigh?
The Locus Seat weighs about 35 lbs and the Locus desk weighs about 87 lbs. The seat has two wheels that allow it to be easily moved about.
Can the desk top accommodate two computer monitors?
The desktop dimensions are 30” x 48.” The best way to arrange multiple monitors would be to use clamps or brackets to position the monitors at slight angles. Additionally, our fixed upper shelf will be a great place to attach one single monitor.
