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. Controller electronics can be positioned to permit installation of options, such as the flipIT® Workstation.
The flipIT® has revolutionized the way computers can be used in a meeting or classroom space. This patented device rotates LCDs into a semi-recessed position— perfect for the user to view the screen and to have unobstructed sight lines throughout. Computers can be instantly put away when the focus shifts from computer use to lecture or other means of presentation. This opens up presentation possibilities— flipIT® allows freedom of access under complete presenter control.
Ultimately, the Cirrus design can be customized to suit the specifics of any installation and technology configuration. SMARTdesks offers a wide selection of power and data connectivity, cable management, and even under floor power and data distribution systems. Technology integrators use SMARTdesks as a resource for providing the technical furniture solutions for any conference space, active learning collaborative classroom, or computer lab. SMARTdesks design collaboration is included at no additional cost.
