With the Yaasa Desk Basic, we’ve introduced an important new member to the Yaasa product family – smaller, lighter and more intuitive than ever before. As with the Yaasa Desk Pro II, premium stability, technology and performance are delivered as standard. This intelligent office desk is the perfect choice for health-conscious users who want to concentrate on the essentials without compromising on quality.
Yaasa Desk Basic
- Electrically height-adjustable (71 – 120 cm)
- Quiet, intuitive and smooth drive
- Easy assembly and high stability
- Modern, simplified design
- Available in 135 x 70 cm in two color options
With smooth, simple adjustability, the Yaasa Desk Basic ensures an easily-achievable ergonomic body posture both when sitting and standing. Adjustable at the touch of a button, this flexibility protects your body, improves overall health and can even increase your productivity.
The Yaasa Desk Basic does not need any extras. With simple upward and downward movement, the desk is intuitively usable and provides countless benefits to your health. However, thanks to its pre-assembled tabletop, you can mount important accessories, including Yaasa Cable Management, onto your desk without any extra effort.
While its simple, standard look contrasts with the more expansive Yaasa Desk Pro II, the Yaasa Desk Basic is not one bit less powerful. The quiet, yet rapid motors in the desk ensure prompt height-adjustment without lags. In addition to a smooth driving experience, the desk also features a highly sensitive anti-collision sensor.
Yaasa stands for modern and considered design. The Yaasa Desk Basic is no different: with clean, straight edges, elegant surfaces and a utilitarian handswitch mounted beneath the tabletop, it fits perfectly into the Yaasa product line and every office space.
To the point

The Yaasa Desk Basic makes it easy: one size, one function. The simplicity of this excellent adjustable office desk provides an uncomplicated and intuitive user experience.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Yaasa Desk Basic
The desks are created entirely by Yaasa – from the initial idea, concept, and design to their manufacture, which takes place in collaboration with trusted production partners in Europe. Our Yaasa Desks are not resale products, something that is apparent in every aspect of the products.
During product development for our desks, we focus exclusively on your personal comfort. So we believe it to be just as important that the entire process – from ordering to assembly to use – is as pleasant as possible for you.
Setup is very simple and can be done easily within a short amount of time, without any special expertise.
While other companies’ desks can feel like sterile office furniture, we believe furniture should be not only practical and comfortable, but also design-friendly. That’s why we focused on creating a modern, minimalist design that blends seamlessly into office and living spaces.
The design and concepts for Yaasa Desks come from our team. They are then implemented and manufactured in collaboration with our European production partners. Together, we create products that combine modern design with innovation and functionality. Our goal is to improve your life in a lasting way. High quality is therefore a standard with Yaasa.
Yes. We are conscious of our responsibility as a company. As a result, we always consider the production and working conditions at various companies when choosing our production partners.
Yes, the Yaasa Cable Management system was designed to complement the desk. Details about the Yaasa Cable Management can be found here. Our Product Development department is also hard at work creating new features and accessories for the desk.
No. The Desk Basic frame is not pre-assembled. Furthermore, the height-adjustable interval is lower than the Desk Pro II due to the use of different inline motors.
The Desk Basic tabletop is made of chipboard coated in melamine resin. The tabletops are available in two colors. The Desk Pro II table top is made of Eurodecor chipboard available in three colors. Furthermore, unlike the Desk Pro II, the Desk Basic tabletop is not designed with rounded edges.
The hand switch is fitted underneath the tabletop. You have the option of mounting the hand switch on the left-hand side or right-hand side beneath the tabletop. The hand switch for the Desk Pro II is permanently mounted to the bottom right-hand side corner of the tabletop.
The Desk Basic design focuses on simplicity. Therefore, laminates for the Desk Basic are not available.
More and more people spend most of their time sitting down – a trend that is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future, given the progress of digitization. At the same time, the effects of too much sitting are well known: tension, pain, lethargy, even herniated disks – the list goes on and on. While ergonomics are becoming increasingly important, and now form the basis of almost every workstation, the underlying problem is rarely addressed.
A sit-stand desk gives you the flexibility you need to get through your day-to-day work while staying healthy and in shape. You can switch between a sitting and standing position as often as you like and adjust the height to your specific needs each time taking pressure off your spine and giving various muscle groups time to recover and relax. Sit-stand desks can reduce or even completely prevent the many negative health-related, mental and physical effects of excess sitting.
The flexibility offered by electrically adjustable desks also makes them perfect shared desks. No matter the height of the employees using the desk, it can be adjusted to the correct ergonomic height at the touch of a button, within seconds.
A minimum height of 71 cm and a maximum height of 120 cm make the desk suitable for most body heights. However, it is hard to make general statements based on height, since ergonomic posture depends on more factors than just height.
The desk can be used by children age 8 and up as long as they are supervised or if you have instructed them on the safe use of the device and they understand the associated risks. Children under the age of 8 should be kept away from electrically adjustable desks, their controls and keypads.
You can find the correct height with a simple rule of thumb: lay your forearm flat on the desk and adjust the height so your forearm and upper arm form a 90° angle. Your thighs should also form a 90° angle with your calves. Make sure your feet are resting flat on the floor, your arms are relaxed on the desktop, and your shoulders are loose. The same applies for standing: make sure your forearms and upper arms form a 90° angle when you are standing up straight.
Our designs and concepts come exclusively from the Yaasa team. The desks are actualized and manufactured in collaboration with our production partners in Europe.
The Yaasa Desk Basic is available in one size and two different colors. The tabletop measures 135 cm in width, 70 cm in depth and 1.8 cm in height.
Without packaging the desk weighs 33 kg. The two packages shipped weigh 22 kg (tech pack) and 16 kg (tabletop).
The tabletop measures 135 cm in width, 70 cm in depth and 1.8 cm in height.
The lowest desk position is 71 cm and its tallest position is 120 cm.
The Yaasa Desk Basic has a maximum load capacity of 100 kg in a static position (i.e. if the desk height is not adjusted up or down). In a dynamic setting, in which the table height is adjusted up or down, the Yaasa Desk Basic can easily be loaded with a weight of up to 80kg without losing stability. This applies to a period of continuous operation (2 min ON / 18 min OFF).
In general, the tallest position for height-adjustable desks causes a shift in stability. That is because the statics change along with the height. But we can guarantee you that the Yaasa Desk Pro II was designed to be extremely stable in every height position.
First, make sure all the screws are fully tightened. Then check whether the leveling pins on the desk feet are adjusted correctly, and make sure they are touching the ground. In our experience, desks feel unstable if your monitor wobbles when you work. But that is usually due to the screen itself. Try a monitor with a good, stable base to keep movements from being transmitted.
The tabletop is made of 1.8 cm thick melamine-coated particle board. The foot stabilizers are made from aluminum, and the desk frame is steel.
Yes, the Yaasa Desk Basic table frame is available in Signal white (RAL 9003) with the corresponding NSC code NCS-S 0500-N SMO. The edges have a dark grey tone and the tabletop comes in an off-white: Kronospan 112 PE Stone Grey. The color was chosen deliberately as an off-white is gentler on the eyes than a pure white colour.
The Yaasa Desk Basic table frame in anthracite has a Pantone Black 3 U 2X frame, NSC code NCS-S 8500-N SMO, whilst the tabletop features a dark grey shade Kronospan 0162 BS Graphite Grey. The edges of the table top are black.
You can move the desk 38.5 mm up or down per second.
The desk makes very little noise when it moves up and down.
Yes. The Intelligent System Protection (ISP) feature is the anti-collision sensor for the integrated drive system. If there is an obstacle in a desk’s work area and the obstacle and the desk collide, the load change affects the drive components. When the system registers the load change, all of the gears stop immediately and move in the opposite direction for a few seconds.
Yes, the desk can be operated by left-handed or right-handed users because the hand switch can be mounted beneath the tabletop on either side.
Unfortunately we cannot offer customized designs. We also do not recommend modifying, expanding or rebuilding the desk; this may invalidate your warranty.
First, check the connection between the desk and the electrical outlet. Please note that the desk cannot be operated for more than 2 minutes at a time without an 18-minute resting period. Also note that the maximum load is 80 kg. If the desk still does not move, please consult our troubleshooting guide to solve the problem, or contact Yaasa’s customer service.
In the event of problems or error messages, you can check the troubleshooting guide for advice. If you have any other questions, please contact Yaasa Support directly. We will help you fix the error and take any necessary measures.
The desk is delivered to your doorstep in 2 separate cardboard boxes. The large package contains the tabletop. The small package contains the desk frame along with the legs, the feet and the leveling slider, the side profiles, the plastic covers for the side profiles, the handswitch, the power supply, the power cord, the cover plate for the power supply, the set of screws and attachment clips, as well as the appropriate tool and a cable fastener. The informational materials and setup instructions are also included in the smaller package. The instructions provided in the package give you a step-by-step explanation of how to set up the desk.
The assembly takes approximately 30 minutes. Previous technical knowledge is not required.
First, unpack the small package. Assemble the steel profiles according to the installation instructions. Pay special attention to the sticker marked as “A”. Use the 4 suitable screws to secure the steel profiles. Then attach the side profiles. Pay attention to the “B”stickers. The table columns are inserted into the side profiles and fastened with the 8 main connecting screws. Raise the column slightly so that the main connecting screws fit into the threads provided.
Ensure that all the screws are tightened firmly to ensure the stability.
Now screw the feet into the columns using 2 screws for each foot. Carefully lift the table frame onto the tabletop and secure the table frame in the centre with 2 screws.
Insert 2 screws on either side to secure the table frame to the tabletop on the side profiles and tighten them. Place the 4 plastic covers onto the side profiles.
Secure the power supply at the centre between the steel profiles using 2 screws. Then connect the cables to the power supply unit. It does not matter which socket is used.
Now mount the hand switch onto the tabletop using 2 screws. The hand switch can be mounted on the left-hand side or the right-hand side below the tabletop. Feed the cable through the steel profiles and plug it into the power supply. The cables can easily be hidden in the slots of the steel profiles. Plug the power cord into the power supply and secure it to the plate with the plastic element provided. Turn the table over and pay attention to the hand switch! Finally, connect the table to the power supply, press the “Down” key for 5 seconds until a noise is heard. And voilà: the desk is ready to be used!
If you assemble and disassemble the desk according to the setup instructions, it will not damage the material.
