Case-maker Lian Li has announced its entry into the furniture market with the launch of the DK-12 and DK-16 motorised sitting-standing desks.
Based on the control system developed for the DK-04 motorised sitting-standing desk-cum-chassis system, the DK-12 and DK-16 do away with the glass-housed PC mount in favour of a more traditional wooden desk surface. In both models, cable management slots feature at the rear corners, with the wooden top covered in what the company describes as a 'leather-like waterproof surface
As with the DK-04, Lian Li's designs include a motorised height control situated on the front-right edge. Using this, buyers can adjust the desk from sitting to standing height and back again - from 695mm to 1,185mm. The size differentiates the two models: the DK-12 is 1,400mm wide and 750mm deep, while the DK-16 is 2,100mm wide and 800mm deep. This increased surface area has a knock-on effect on load capabilities: while the smaller model can lift 120kg, the larger variant is limited to 80kg and a taller minimum height of 705mm.
Lian Li has launched both the DK-12 and DK-16 into the channel now. UK pricing is not yet confirmed, with US recommended retail prices having been set at $899 and $1,099 for the DK-12 and DK-16 respectively (around £684 and £835, excluding taxes).
