While the Yaasa Desk Basic and the Yaasa Desk Pro II are clearly closely related — two thoroughbred pieces of ergonomic, height-adjustable furniture developed with a strong focus on style and performance — they are not identical twins.
The differences start with the visual. The first thing you’ll notice when you see our tables side by side is that the two are very different animals indeed. On the one hand is the Yaasa Desk Basic, which demands attention with its avant-garde design, featuring clean and linear shaping of the tabletop, legs and feet. On the other side is the Yaasa Desk Pro II, which lures you in with smooth, seductive curves in all the right areas.
However, it’s not just the frames: the question of handsets is another important distinction between these two excellent contenders. The Yaasa Desk Pro II features the “classic” Yaasa handset placement, set into the tabletop so that it lies flush and discreetly inline. With the Yaasa Desk Basic, we decided to try something new: the desk is the first Yaasa table ever to incorporate its handswitch below the line of the tabletop, which allows for easy access, an installation option for left-handed users, and contributes to the more angled visual effect.
These contrasts are further accentuated by the customization options for the two tables. As the Yaasa Desk Basic’s harder exterior would suggest, it takes an uncompromising stance to tabletop design: 135×70 cm, take it or leave it. However, the Yassa Desk Pro II is altogether more accommodating, providing three different options for tabletop sizes (139 x 75 cm, 160 x 80 cm, and 180 x 80 cm) that make possibilities for office spaces of all sizes.
Did you know? Regardless of which height-adjustable desk you choose, you can always enhance it with intuitive extras. Yaasa Cable Management keeps your cables safe, neat and tidy in sitting and standing positions and can be mounted onto both the Yaasa Desk Basic and Yaasa Desk Pro II with minimum extra effort.
Of course, furniture — and especially height-adjustable office furniture — is not just for looking at. Your sit-stand desk will form an important part of your daily working routine, which is why the range of functionality you want and need should form an important part of your buying decision.
The main reason that people buy height-adjustable desks is largely consistent: to gain the ability to switch between sitting and standing positions at ease. If you are focusing solely on the basics of ergonomics, the Yaasa Desk Basic has everything you need. It moves up and down to whatever position is the most comfortable for you (between 71 and 120 cm) and it does this quietly, smoothly, and reliably. Better still, you gain an attractive item of height-adjustable furniture that shares many of the same technical characteristics with the more expansive Yaasa Desk Pro II, at a more affordable price.
However, sometimes a table isn’t just a table. With its wide range of functionality, the Yaasa Desk Pro II takes the concept of a height-adjustable office desk and transforms it into an all-encompassing ergonomic experience. While you do your work on the table, you can be sure the table is working for you. Here are just a handful of intelligent features that can enhance your new, ergonomic lifestyle.
- Collision Detection. Reduce the risk of costly system damage with Intelligent System Protection. By stopping the table before collisions become too severe, the Yaasa Desk Pro II ensures a more relaxing journey from sitting to standing and back again.
- Memory Positions. Save up to two predefined memory positions in order to adjust to the perfect height effortlessly.
- Height Display. Always know where you are with the Yaasa Desk Pro II’s at-a-glance LED display.
- Key Lock. Simple stroke the keypad to lock it and ensure that you don’t move the table accidentally.
To complete your new ergonomic workspace, you’ll definitely want to consider adding an ergonomic office chair to your desk setup. For this, look no further than the Yaasa Chair. This beautifully-designed and expertly-upholstered seat is the perfect complement to both the Yaasa Desk Basic and the Yassa Desk Pro II, or indeed any other office desk you are using.
