The MILK desk was designed to give you a customizable workspace, in a smart and stylish way;
a workspace to feed your mind and body.
MILK Classic was born from a need. It was impossible to find a desk that could accommodate a crisp Apple MacBook Pro, something that would work with the clean aluminum design of the computer in a time where most hight adjustable tables looked like hospital beds.
Whether you sit up, slump down, or stand and tap your toes while working, imagine a desk to fit your state of mind and body. The height adjustable MILK desk is ergonomic and responsive which helps conserve your energy for the important stuff. And with 4 built-in compartments to hold your pens and clips and discrete cord management system, the MILK Classic is the design world's answer to whistling while you work.
It's grade A all the way. The ideal desk.
MILK Classic is designed to feed your body and mind by giving you a smart, stylish workspace that adjusts to your every need.

With built-in covered compartments to contain your workspace tools, the MILK desk is the design world's answer to whistling while you work. The compartments are connected to the discrete cord management system and double as charging stations to hide your devices, such as your iPhone, to clear your desk further.
These innovative compartments also serve as a place for a fish tank, pen holder, trash bin and storage box.
The top lids to close the compartments are available in black, white, purple and brushed aluminum.
Discrete Cord Management
The MILK desk is designed for a cable-free desktop in every way - its cable tray hides clutter and the hidden compartments hide away your cords and gadgets. The built-in slot along the front edge features a hidden cable cutout and is connected to the discrete cord management system.
Cable exits have been created in the desk to bundle the cables together and keep them hidden under the table in the cable tray. All of the desk's cable cutouts (the cable exits on the surface and one inside each of the desk’s compartments) lead into the discrete cord management system and then into the cable tray.
The power cable exits from the top of the base behind the central column and is the only visible wiring, making the desk perfect for those who want a desk (or multiple ones) in the middle of the office rather than against the wall.
File it under smart
It features a built-in slot along the front edge (on the right side of the desk) for your active paper files or your laptop/tablet. With a hidden cable cutout connected to the discrete cord management system there is always power for your electronic devices.
MILK - a desk that likes to work too. With all it’s features, the MILK desk actively helps to remove clutter on the desktop. And the more your horizontal surface is clear in front of you, the more opportunity you have to promote your creativity.
With the touch of a button, the desk silently raises the height from 73-123 cm to the required position. The top of the table is supported on a single pedestal, which is placed at a distance to provide ample leg room.
While an adjustable desk is great for those who like to fidget, nothing makes a meeting proceed more quickly than having co-workers stand rather than sit. If you use a standing desk correctly you will have fewer muscle problems, an increased sense of well-being and energy, decreased fatigue and appetite – and keep your productivity steady.
One 2014 study in the International Journal of Environment Research and Public Health found that giving a bunch of desk jockeys sit-stand desks reduced their sedentary time by more than three hours a week.
What’s the big idea? Some of us just need more room. The MILK desk provides a generous surface and a beautifully clean canvas for ideas and discussions. With the MILK desk Grande, a bigger version of the MILK desk, you will have all the extra space you need. And for teamwork, the 4MILK desk provides the perfect workspace for teams to work together and achieve more.
Make it your own
The finish and size of your desktop, the color of the desktop stand and the color and material of your compartment top lids are all important details to make your desk your own. How you customize your ideal desk is entirely up to you. Choose from different options to suit your style, space and work pace. Express yourself with a desk customized and built for you.
Taking a be-here-now approach to the design and management of your literal and virtual desktops will contribute to stress relief and improved effectiveness at work. Your ideal way to the be-here-now approach - The MILK desk!
Adjust your desk to your every need
Imagine a desk to fit your state of mind and body. The height adjustable MILK desk is ergonomic and responsive which helps conserve your energy for the important stuff.
With using a standing workstation, you will make a move toward improving your health. Research confirmed that sitting for long periods is linked with health problems, including obesity and metabolic syndrome — a cluster of conditions that includes increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels.
The height adjustable MILK desk is the design world's answer to whistling while you work. It easily adapts to your needs and supports your health.
Reduce or eliminate clutter on your desktop
Clutter on the desktop is a big problem, because piles of paper and stacks of files block the free movement of "chi," or energy, through the workspace, effectively blocking you from achieving your goals.
Surrounding yourself with physical representations of all the things you have to do (articles to read, reports to edit, documents to file), not to mention all the things you take care of (the photo of your sailboat, your notebook, and electronic gadgets), can be extremely unproductive.
The more your horizontal surface is clear in front of you, the more opportunity you have to promote your creativity. The MILK desk supports this approach with up to four integrated compartments and a built-in slot along the front edge - and it also hides all your cables...
Reduce or eliminate cables on your desktop
Bluetooth technology enables you to use the most of your peripherals on your desktop, like your keyboard and mouse, your graphic tablet, your speakers and more, without cables. Additionally, you can use some helpful lifehacker techniques, like shorten lengthy cables, get under-desk cables off the floor with a wire basket, or use induction chargers for your gadgets.
Ideally, your desk offers a cable tray to hide away all power cables and offers a hidden multiple socket outlet to get rid of the main power cables. With an integrated cord management system to invisibly connect your peripherals to your computer or to your power adapters, and integrated compartments to hide away gadgets that you don’t need at the moment, your path to a nearly perfectly cable-free desktop is clear.
The designer - Søren Rose
Running his own design studio has been a life long dream. In his earlier years, he started companies for which he worked as the Creative Director (In2media), now one of Scandinavia’s leading web agencies; and Trunk Archive, today’s premier photographer archive that was recently sold to investors. These very different ventures have taught him a lot about niches, branding and running a business.
In 2008 he decided not to be involved with the daily operations of these companies, and to fully dedicate himself to starting a design agency. He spring loaded the Studio’s start by launching the MILK table. It received overwhelming acclaim from both clients and press, so with several full sketchbooks in hand, he jumped into this awesome industry.

The MILK desk is new and I’m not sure about its quality.
The MILK desk got introduced in 2008. Until today it got mentioned in countless publications, like the Wall Street Journal, ELLE and ELLE Decor, New York Magazine, Bo Bedre, Frame Magazine, WIRED and many more. It received a lot of positive reviews and over 600 websites worldwide link to the manufacturer's homepage. Just take a look at the tab "In the Press". We use the MILK desk since the last 8 years every day and it works like a charm since the first day. Without the MILK desk we could not imagine accomplishing our daily work and at the same time support our health.
Why should I pick the MILK desk and not the (enter desk name here) desk?
Let us answer this with the reasons why other customers switched to the MILK desk from other standing desks: The main reason is the design because although it’s an office desk, they wanted a beautiful piece of furniture that they are able to work on - every day. After that comes, of course, the ability to electrically and silently adjust the height, and all our different customers, be it a photographer, an architect or an office worker, had their reasons for integrating the MILK desk into their everyday life and work healthier ever since. And the third reason was the ability to achieve a nearly cable-free desk top with hiding all the cables in the discrete cord management system. Learn more about the be-here-now approach and how it will positively affect your work and life.
Is the MILK desk a good choice for taller people?
If you are taller than most people, the MILK desk is the perfect choice for you. Simply adjust the height to a position that is comfortable for you and use your existing chair. Due to the position of the column in the middle of the desk top there are no barriers for you moving around your desk.
Can I stretch my legs with the column in the middle?
The electrical column positioned exactly in the middle of the desk top, is one of the advantages of the MILK desk. If you move around the desk with your chair, or if you raised the desk and work on the desk from different sides, there will never be an obstacle in your way, that keeps you from moving around. With our own experience of using the MILK desk for over 8 years now, we never had problems stretching our legs.
Why are other standing desks much cheaper?
With the MILK desk as your standing desk solution, you get the most value for your money. No other standing desk on the market offers the features, materials and handling you get with the MILK desk. The MILK desk is more than just a desk! The MILK desk features up to 4 built-in compartments to hide and charge your gadgets, the helpful built-in slot on the front for your laptop or tablet, the discrete and functional cord management system to hide all your cables and cable exits on the generous surface. And it is height adjustable - electrically and silently, with the touch of a button. Why settle for less than the ideal customizable ergonomic desk?
Why do I need an anti-fatigue mat if the standing desk alone should benefit my health?
If you integrate a sit-stand working condition in your daily routine, your health will benefit in many ways solely due to not sitting the whole day long. Your body does a pretty good job to tell you if it is time to stand up or to sit down. While standing at your desk, your muscles in your legs will contract and expand in micro-movements, which will help promote good circulation and prevent exhaustion. This is a completely subconscious process. The anti-fatigue mat supports these micro-movements because the muscles in your legs will contract and expand in order to adjust to the flexible material of the anti-fatigue mat. To make it short, with an anti-fatigue mat you will benefit even more while standing at your desk.
Is there any warranty or guarantee on the desk?
HOLMRIS offers two years of limited warranty on the desk top/table, and five years of limited warranty on the electrical column. We handle all support and warranty requests for our customers directly. Since 2008 we never had any warranty cases at all.
