In an unexpected shift from its usual M.O. of creating software instruments, Output has come up with a studio desk called Platform that hits a sweetspot for home producers and musicians, bringing both form and function at a very reasonable price of US$549. You’d be hard pressed finding comparable studio furniture in that price bracket.
Uniquely tailored for music production, Platform has a bridge for studio monitors, 9U of vertical rack space, sleek cable management, and an optional pull-out keyboard tray. It’s got a clean, modern look that’s available in natural wood or hand-stained finished.
One of the coolest facts about Output’s studio desk is it’s made out of real wood from renewable sources. Proceeds from every desk sold go to a foundation started by Ryuichi Sakamoto called More Tree, to support reforestation and carbon offset projects.
Currently, the desk is only available in the US however global shipping is surprisingly cheap, just $59. That’s less than you’d pay for Ikea to deliver to your door.
