With COVID forcing more and more people to work from home, we find ourselves sitting at a desk more and more and it simply is not good for one’s health to be sedentary for that long. The folks at Autonomous may have the solution with a smarter desk that can be utilized in a standing position.
The team behind Autonomous is all about practical, functional minimalism. They firmly believe that the user experience is the most important factor to take into consideration, so while products should have a great degree of function, they should also be intuitive and simple to use, to unleash their full potential. In a recent Harvard Health Blog, they highlighted a new study that suggests that a standing desk can reduce factors that lead to obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer (especially cancers of the colon or breast), and resultingly premature death. The Smartdesk 2 by Autonomous is an affordable solution to those seeking to supercharge their workspace and their productivity.
The fully adjustable Standing Desk 2 features a robust SPCC steel frame paired with your choice of beautifully finished High-quality MDF wood or natural bamboo, with a variety of color options to match your office or home workspace. With a full sit to stand range of motion, the desk features 4 programmable height settings with a smooth, silent dual-motor system capable of lifting up to 300 lbs at the press of a button.
This affordable standing desk costing just USD 379, allows consumers to increase energy levels and focus while personalizing the workspace to fit you, instead of you fit it. Reassuringly, all of their desks have also been certified by the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA), Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), and the Global Safety Body UL.
After using the Smartdesk 2 exclusively in our office for the past month, there are a few takeaways we wanted to share. First of all, the desk itself while quite heavy is fairly easy to set up and get going, it took us, simpletons, about 30-45 mins from start to finish. It also very nearly whisper quiet and silky smooth when being raised or lowered which we loved. Lastly, as for its claims on boosting productivity, it keeps you more focused and less prone to daydreaming. You can’t exactly laze back in your chair and doze off or you will find yourself with a sore bottom. Put simply, we feel better standing than sitting for long hours at a time and that just has to be better for you, no matter which way you spin it.
To sum up, if you are about mastering your work from home space, this may very well be the tool we all need to stay focused when there are so many distractions at home that can take you away from your work and we are OK with that!
