The best standing desk in Australia: Our top choice of the year


If you're looking for a standing desk for your home office, the Omnidesk Ascent is our current #1 pick.

The Omnidesk Ascent has been named the best standing desk in Australia by Finder's shopping experts.

The Ascent beat out more than 20 competing brands and 80 other desk models.

We chose this model for its sturdy design, clever organisational system and fast, reliable motor.

Here are a few product features that our reviews team were particularly impressed by.

  • Fast operation: The Omnidesk Ascent has a motor speed of 60mm per second which is up to 3 times faster than other motorised standing desks on the market. Extending the desk to its maximum height of 125cm takes under 15 seconds. This is particularly handy if you like to switch frequently between standing and sitting positions throughout the workday.
  • Sturdy frame: The desk is constructed from a choice of durable tabletop woods supported by a 37kg 3-column steel frame. It has a maximum load of 130kg which is around 30kg-40kg more than the average. It is therefore capable of supporting multiple monitors and desktops, including large gaming and video editing rigs.
  • Easy-to-use interface: The Omnidesk Ascent uses an LED controller with 7 tactile buttons including 4 programmable preset heights. The panel also has Bluetooth functionality, allowing you to access the controls directly through your phone. The app also tracks the time spent sitting or standing at the desk.
  • Cable management: The desk comes with an inbuilt cable management bar, grommet hole and three-piece magnetic cable tray to vastly reduce tabletop clutter.
