Joining the Two Hemispheres of Work

When you sit in front of a computer all day, you and your chair move, but the technology stays put. The result? A poor connection, back and neck pain, eyestrain, fatigue. The radical solution? Envelop, an adjustable, ergonomic desk that helps you move throughout the day while keeping your eyes focused on the work.

  • The Eyes Always Win

    When you sit at your computer, your body aligns itself so that your eyes focus most easily on the monitor. Because the ability to view the monitor is most important, your eyes will always "win"—even if that means the rest of your body loses. Envelop's unique design features a surface that slides toward you and away from you, with a seventy-degree tilt that keeps technology in the correct ergonomic positions and maintains the visual display at the optimal distance.

  • All-day Comfort

    It's called Envelop because the "infield"—the sliding, flexible support surface—envelops you as you work. As you recline in your chair it slides toward you to provide continuous flexible support for your forearms and wrists on the soft, resilient surface. Because Envelop moves and encourages movement, it lets you take full advantage of an ergonomic task chair with a synchronous tilt. It provides ergonomic support through a wide range of seated and standing postures, including a comfortable recline.

  • A Good Fit

    Envelop fits whatever space you need it to be in. Its clean, trim aesthetic works harmoniously with any design, and you can have it in a wide variety of laminates, veneers, and finishes that lets you match any decor. It's also designed to fit just about anyone's body. The pocket that envelops your body accommodates from the fifth to 98th percentile of both women and men.

  • Earth-friendly

    Envelop has been designed to meet the rigorous Herman Miller Design for the Environment protocol. Made from 32 percent recycled materials, it is 53 percent recyclable at the end of its useful life.

Answer: 
We use it with the Aeron chair, and it is great. You may wish to use an "arm-less" Aeron chair, however, as the desk surface rolls not only toward you, but down, as well. Depending on your height, the fully rolled down desk surface can hit the arms of an Aeron chair.

Answer: 
The Envelop Desk can be used with any of our office chairs including Aeron. Should you decided to go with an Aeron Chair, you'll want to be sure to option on the Tilt Limiter with Seat Angle Adjustment to get the full ergonomic benefit of the desk and it's ability to interact with a synchronous tilt.

Answer: 
I would not recommend a monitor arm support with this desk. The design can't handle the additional weight.

Answer: 
I can assure you both our veneer and laminate surfaces adhere to the same quality and durability requirements and either would be a great option in combination with our Flo Monitor Support.

The Flo Monitor will not leave any marks on the desk if it is attached properly. If you over tighten anything to the surface, it will most likely leave a mark.

The Envelop Desk does carry a 5 year warranty! Should there be any concerns, simply contact us and we will work with you to get your desk serviced or replaced.

Envelop Desk 3 5 2 2
A Huge Caveat This desk is great, but only if you're writing with pen and paper. If you're using a computer, it wobbles continuously as you type. If your monitor is attached to your worksurface with a monitor, the wobble is even more pronounced. February 4, 2014
Great for shorter people This desk is true to its name, as it completely envelops you when configured correctly. For shorter people, in particular, this is indeed a revolutionary product. It is the desk equivalent to sitting in an ergonomic office chair for the first time. Once you correctly configure the Envelop, you realize how much back and shoulder discomfort a standard desk can cause. The caveats that follow are more a product of my enormous satisfaction with the product; I have never spent this much time thinking about a piece of furniture. There could be some improvements. The desk has a tendency to vibrate. If you are a particularly "heavy-handed" typist, this is not the desk for you. The metal tray that is exposed when the desk surface is deployed to its most "rolled down" setting, seems to serve no utilitarian purpose and is unsightly. The designers should make it usable or cover it. Finally, don't lose the thumbscrews! I almost threw them out with the packaging before realizing that they were essential to maintaining a particular desk surface setting. The instructions were not very clear on this point. July 23, 2013
