High concept furniture customized for technical function is SMARTdesks’ raison d’etre. The Cirrus Motorized Standing flipIT Desk-Podium is an example of the AV technical customization SMARTdesks is famous for. SMARTdesks’ proven, fully engineered assets are designed for each customer in a flexible customized solution, made to order. The criteria for this product was that it had to match the interior design style of existing furnishings, so the specific laminates were used for an exact match. The 60 x 26 top and modesty panel were altered to permit the installation of a rack mount AV enclosure with lockable access from the connection side, SMARTdesks’ patented flipIT monitor mount system that provides a multi-use work surface, and motorized legs to accommodate height adjustment with a static load design limit of 225 lbs.

The height adjustment from 26” to 45.7” is made at 2” per second using simple up-down buttons. The twin columns and twin motors are controller synchronized from a zero set point at the lowest position.
