Work Note: Standing Desk Update

The Ikea Bekant desk frame is our new standing desk solution.

Back in April, we took down our Ikea hacked standing desks until we would find an adjustable solution. As of last week, we’re standing again. Martin made us aware of the Ikea Bekant frame that comes without a table top and costs 430,- Euros.
