The Captain's Standing Desk
In crafting the Captain’s Desk, iMovR's lead furniture designer, Vincent Leman, sought to evoke romantic allusions to the age of exploration, when galleon ships plied the currents and trade winds, connecting the new world with the old.
Nautical buffs will appreciate the angular elements of a classic ship captain’s davenport desk and the perimeter fencing of a military campaign desk (intended to keep navigation instruments from rolling off the table in rocking seas), making the iMovR Captain’s desk one of the most charming and unique standing desk designs on the market today.
The Elegance, Strength, Durability, and Sustainability of Baltic Birch
Emanating from the northeastern region of Europe around the Baltic Sea (chiefly Russia and Finland), Baltic birch plywood has long been prized by the world’s finest cabinet makers for its strength and consistency. Many high-quality musical instruments, such as guitars and percussion are made from Baltic birch.
Its core is completely unlike traditional plywood you might find in lumber yards or big box stores. The layers of inner plies are 1 mm-thick solid birch veneer, cross-banded, and laminated with strong adhesive. It’s a recipe that results in a void-free core with a number of distinct advantages over other desktop materials. We use only the top grade (B/BB) of Baltic birch to make our desktops.
Beyond its gorgeous maple-mimicking aesthetics, Baltic birch is incredibly strong and stable. Compared to natural hardwoods of the same or even much greater thicknesses, it is far less susceptible to flex and movement over time and with changes in temperature and humidity. Furniture makers love Baltic birch for its uniformity, which allows for precision joinery and impressive durability.
Baltic birch is also sustainable, growing to maturity more quickly than many of our native, North American species. It takes less than half the raw wood material to make a desktop that looks like maple yet is much stronger and more stable, making it a "greener" option. It’s also a much safer material than the cheap plywoods that flood the market from China and other countries, which are unregulated and, more often than not, glued together with toxic glues you would never want in your home or business.
The QuickShip Captain's Standing Desk is available in two gorgeous desktop options: Natural Baltic Birch or Espresso Baltic Birch. We use only GREENGuard-certified, formaldehyde-free stains and sealants in the meticulous hand-crafting of these desktops, to give them a shimmering gleam and protect the beauty of the wood for many years to come.

Built on a Premium-Quality Height-Adjustable Base
The Captain’s Desk is proudly engineered and manufactured in the USA. Innovative advancements like a built-in health coach and Bluetooth-connected app make your transition to a healthier work life easier than ever before. With commercial-grade ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014 certification and an industry-leading warranty, you’ll enjoy the confidence of knowing your desk was built to last.
Intuitive Height Control Paddle with Built-in Health Coach
The Captain’s Desk’s height control paddle makes it the easiest desk in the world to use. Simply tap twice up or down to adjust the desk to your next height favorite. Want reminders to stand? Its built-in coach will gently remind you to stand at intervals you can set, either by flashing the LED in the paddle, sending a push notification to your phone, or both. Studies have shown a 117% increase in standing time by activating the health coach feature.
Smartphone App Unlocks Advanced Controller Options
We are continuously working to enhance the app with additional features to help you maximize the health benefits of your Captain’s Desk. With seamless Bluetooth connectivity you can remotely raise your desk, set up to four favorite height positions, establish custom reminders to stand (with optional push notifications), and more, all without touching the desk! Great for hot desks and shared spaces.
Quiet and Reliable
The Captain’s Desk can heft up to 225 lbs. while you can hardly hear the hushed motors. Some electric desks use fast but noisy motors, while some use slow but quieter motors; only the iMovR’s adjustable bases can lift this much weight at a blazing 1.6 inches per second and be this quiet. The Captain’s Desk is available in both a single-stage (two-segment leg) or dual-stage (3-segment leg) XT version. Average-height users can save by selecting the single-stage base, while extra-tall and extra-short individuals will want to opt for the dual-stage for its wider height range. The dual-stage version also offers improved stability at the higher height settings.
Fully-Assembled in Just Minutes
Every other standing desk you can buy entails tackling a DIY assembly project or hiring an installer. And there’s always the risk of an assembly error or one failed component that keeps you from enjoying your new desk. Why risk the hassle? The Captain’s Desk comes factory-tested and 90% pre-assembled; you’ll only need to attach the feet to the legs with four screws each, using the supplied Allen wrench.
This is a NEAT™ (Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) certified product; its usage will help combat the negative health effects of a sedentary lifestyle. Standing while working is the first line of defense against sitting disease, as the small movements you make throughout the day while standing increase your body’s energy expenditure and heart rate.
Base color options:
The Natural Baltic Birch finish includes a Silver base, and the Espresso Baltic Birch finish is paired with a Black base.
