Following up on its previous high-tech standing desk, the Stir Kinetic Desk, the Apple-inspired design company Stir has recently released the Stir Kinetic Desk M1 ($2,990), a new option that drops the price while adapting a more contemporary, curvy design, with rounded waterfall edges. Available in a black or white finish, the desk is CNC-machined, providing a seamless finish, with a powder coat applied over the engineered wood.
Like its sibling, the M1 packs in quite a high-tech suite of features, however, that go beyond mere aesthetic appeal, providing smart, cloud-connected features for adjusting the desk and integrating with your Mac, iPhone, and other accessories.
A touchscreen in the corner allows you to control features of the desk, such as automatically raising and lowering it to move between sitting and standing positions, and the M1 includes a Whisperbreath feature that will remind you to change positions.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity on the M1 allows you to take advantage of cloud features such as syncing your Fitbit directly from the desk, and even provides auto-login features to make things easy when sharing your desk between multiple people. The built-in firmware allows the desk to learn and adapt to individual users, tracking usage and remembering data and preferences.
