First announced in June 2011 the Humanscale Float height adjustable table was
originally scheduled for launch in November 2011,however the launch was delayed.
It now looks likely the Float will become available during May 2012.
Once it is definitely available we will add a full review of it.
In the meantime lets take a quick look at what’s in store.
What’s the Float all about?
Humanscale prides itself on producing innovative products that don’t just follow what everyone else is doing. And Float looks to continue this trend. The table is named Float due to the way the height adjusting top moves. It has a patented counter balance mechanism which provides its height adjustability.
By simply pressing a lever on the underside front edge of the top it activates the mechanism and the top effortlessly ‘floats’ to the desired working height with little interaction from the user.
And the adjustability range is good allowing a full 20 inches of height adjustment between 27 and 47 inches.
In appearance its slim legs look a lot sleeker than many other adjustable height tables. There are no chunky crossbars on the underside either.
What will Float cost?
The 48 inch wide top version has a list price of $1900 and so expect a nett price from online retailers of about $1200. There are also 60 and 72 inches wide top versions which will cost a little more, maybe an extra $100.
