Not at all, you can use your Kaenae Desks from anywhere you want: in your kitchen, from an airplane terminal, a café... the possibilities are endless as your creativity.


Is my laptop going to fall from the table top?

No need to worry about falls! Your Kaenae Desk comes with laptop stoppers to keep your device from slipping.

You can use it standing up or sitting down. Your elbows should make a 90 degree angle and your back and neck should be straight. We recommend switching positions every 2-3 hours or anytime you feel the need.


Are there any health benefits to working standing up?

According to the Harvard Medical School, standing up is a great way to keep your back and neck straight. Other potential health benefits of a standing desk are based on the findings that long hours of sitting are linked with a higher risk of diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular diseases. 


Can I fit a glass cup or an external mouse on the tabletop?

This is something we are prioritizing for early 2021. We will add new products so you can have space for your accessories on the tabletop.
