Designed with precision.
Say goodbye to neck and eye strains with the new UPTIS desk.
An adjustable work desk designed to align with your ideal posture while you work.
Strains on the neck or shoulders are often caused by uncomfortable positioning of your laptop.

Many of us try to alleviate this by stacking our devices on top of books or getting a laptop stand so that the screen is at eye level.

However, it is sometimes ineffective because there is an ideal angle to ensure ergonomic comfort – 12 degrees to be exact; an angle Kokuyo has perfected with Uptis, a work desk that can be adjusted to seven levels to align with your posture.

UPTIS resolves this with its adjustable tilt so that both the eyes and wrists are at an angle complementary to each other.
More than just a functional piece, Uptis is also designed as an elegant space-saving workstation to complement modern work spaces. Utility space is created between one seat to another so that there’s ample space in the middle and around the sides for storing personal items and other devices.

This innovative setup reduces clutter and promotes a sense of personal space, contributing to a more conducive and productive work environment.
