Additional Information

Description

Designer and sculptor Brian Alexander has always been fascinated by the way people interact with their environments and the objects around them. By studying people’s behavior, he gets a sense of what they find intuitive, which he then works into his creations. “I try to slip people little affirmations through my designs, things they can identify or connect with on a very basic level,” he explains. “You can see it in their faces, the reactions they have when something flows with them rather than against them.” A holder of 20-plus patents for office furniture and accessories, Alexander clearly knows his way around the workplace and what people need to be comfortable and productive in it. His Renew Desk (2013) lets you go from sitting to standing and back again so you can keep moving throughout the workday – vital to improving energy and focus and to lowering health risks associated with a sedentary lifestyle. Its motorized lift operates easily with an intuitive lever: pull up to raise, push down to lower. Beyond adjustability, Renew also sports ample legroom and beveled edges for eliminating bumps and bruises, and concealed screw heads for a sleek finish. Simple assembly required. Backed by a two-year manufacturer’s warranty. Made in U.S.A.

Michigan-based designer, artist and workplace consultant Brian Alexander grew up on a family farm, with “lots of space and very little framing, very little ‘this is mine, and that’s yours’ mindset.” With that grounding, Alexander became interested in the way people interact with their surroundings and the objects around them, and he’s devoted himself to “making things people use and live ...

Care and Assembly

View Instructions
Care & Maintenance With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here. The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller Products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary. Coated Metal For normal cleaning, wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the instructions on the label. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen. Do not use abrasive, acid, alcohol–based, or solvent–based cleaners; they may damage the paint finish. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative. Polished Aluminum For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum. Wood & Veneer This includes Herman Miller products finished with wood veneer or recut wood veneer, except the oiled Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman with Rosewood, Oiled Walnut, or Oiled Santos Palisander veneer unless specifically noted. Normal Cleaning Dust regularly with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the directionof the wood grain.Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth. Once a month Clean the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner formulated for wood furniture. Wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth. Twice a year Apply a good quality furniture polish with a soft cloth. Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes. Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based. Stains Herman Miller veneers meet strict testing standards for resistance to wear, light, stains, water, and pressure. To reduce the risk of damage, take some precautions: Use coasters for glasses and mugs. If a glass top is added to the veneer surface, be sure it rests on felt pads. Don't place a potted plant on a veneer surface unless it's in a water-tight container or in a drip tray.Don't let vinyl binders stay on a surface for very long. Use protective pads under equipment with "rubber" cushioning feet. Some chemical compounds used in the feet on office equipment, such as printers and monitor stands, may leave permanent stains or marks. Minor repair of water rings, stains, and scratches Rub the surface lightly in the direction of the wood grain using No. 000 steel wool. Apply a scratch-removing polish with a color and value that simulate the veneer. If the scratches are deep, consult a professional furniture refinisher. Other Damage Wood is susceptible to bruising and scratching from heavy office equipment, so we encourage a protective surface is placed underneath. Objects should be lifted instead of dragged across a surface. Protective pads should be used under items with a rough bottom, like pottery. Denting, caused by extreme pen pressure when writing, can also damage veneer. Use desk pads or some other protection where a lot of paperwork is done. Sunlight can damage veneer as well, so veneer surfaces should not be in direct sunlight. To help a surface age evenly, users can periodically move items on their desks so that the entire surface is exposed to an even amount of light over time. In addition to light, extremely high or low humidity is a damaging environmental factor. Herman Miller suggests maintaining a relative humidity of 35-65 percent. Laminates For normal cleaning, wash the laminate with a soft cloth and a solution of mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. For minor repair of burns or other stubborn marks, apply a nonabrasive liquid kitchen cleanser with a soft cloth soaked in warm water. Rub in the direction of the grain; use caution to avoid damaging the surface texture or gloss. If no grain direction is visible, rub with a light, circular motion. Do not use powdered abrasives or other harsh cleansers like hypochlorite bleach, hydrogen peroxide, nitric or hydrochloric acids, or lye; they may deface the surface and change the finish color. Formcoat For Normal cleaning, wash with a soft cloth and a mixture of a mild detergent and warm water; wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth. Avoid the following types of cleaning agents: Lysol cleaners, abrasive cleaners (Soft Scrub, Comet, etc.), and acetone based cleaners. For spot cleaning, spray with Fantastik®, 409®, or Kleerdex Company's Kleer Off General Purpose Cleaner and wipe until dry with a clean, soft cloth. To clean metal marring, use a product call ZUD, which will remove the metal marring without changing the gloss or color of your Formcoat product.

Terrible Instructions, damaged parts, poor design
The assembly instructions for this unit are TERRIBLE! The delivery people took over three hours to assemble with numerous phone calls to the Company during the process.

The design of the product is flawed - see picture. The cord comes out but there is no channel so the leg rests directly on the cord (see photo - eventual fire hazard). Also - the bolt does not screw all the way down so if you have hard wood floors - you will gauge your floors and/or rip your carpet.

Finally - the cord cover came damaged (see photo).

Not a great experience. They missed their delivery date by over a week. I had to chase down the delivery. Customer service does not follow-up as they indicate.

ONLY consider the electric version
I LOVE the standing Herman Miller desk, having the whole surface raise is absolutely fabulous!!! There were a couple unexpected quirks compared to how our salesperson described this that others considering similar set-ups could benefit from knowing.

The crank is not underneath, it is actually in the work surface. There is an access point at each end of the table so that is a plus, I am concerned about the surface getting damaged or the crank part getting chipped so I try to be extra careful. It takes more than a few cranks to raise and lower the surface, 80 to be precise and I am only 51. Most people who want a standing desk have neck and shoulder issues so this will just aggravate it or create issues they didnt have.

My biggest recommendation is to go with the electric version, it is more than worth the extra cost.
