Eco Friendly Desks

We create intelligent, durable and eco-friendly desk solutions designed to deliver a solid return on your investment.  DDB is committed to helping create and protect sustainable forests. In partnership with the National Forestry Commission, we’re proud to plant one new tree for every solid wood DDB product that we sell. Not only does this help offset our impact on the environment, but it’s one way we’re making sure that the resources we use today will be available for future generations. 

  • Kind to the environment

    We use sustainable wood materials to manufacture our solutions to the highest standard, that is why we guarantee our desks for 25 years

  • Free collect and recycling service

    Our service helps to minimise wastage and is designed to help you dispose of your tired desks responsibly

  • Environmental Responsibilities

    Recognising our environmental responsibilities, we have partnered with The National Forest scheme to help plant more trees.  For every wooden i-desk installed we will donate £1 towards planting a new tree.

Discover a smarter way to work

From education to the corporate sector, we work tirelessly to discover a better way for desk users to achieve peak performance. Get in touch to learn how our DDB can help solve your workspace challenges.

Testimonials

Yes the new ICT Suite is in use – the Head, Jon Reynard, has just emailed me this regarding the new i-desks :

‘They were great and the finished suite is amazing!! I would recommend them to other schools if they need me to.  I have had loads of very positive comments from the teaching staff who are looking forward to using a modern environment to teach in.  i-desk have done great job, communication was excellent throughout the project, the fitters were nice guys and you delivered on time.  The NCS engineers also remarked on how good it was to have accurate plans to work with, this made their job a lot easier too.

“The project to install i-desk flexible furniture was borne out of the need to maximise the utilisation of a traditional PC lab. Before the installation of the furniture the use of the PC lab was limited to sessions which required the use of the PCs – the layout of the room with fixed PCs on desks was not conducive to any other taught session. As a result the room was only getting used 50%, or thereabouts, of the timetabled day – not great when space is at such a premium. Because of the simplicity and effectiveness of the i-desk design moving from PC desk to seminar table at the push of a button – the University’s timetabling team are now free to schedule seminar style sessions in the room as well as PC sessions, thus increasing utilisation to nearer 85%!   4 labs have been converted to date, and the solution will roll out to other labs over the coming months. Not only does the solution increase efficiency, but it also looks good to.”

I believe that, altogether, we have achieved an innovative approach to supporting independent research and study skills as well as motivation for pupils and staff to use ICT across the curriculum to great effect without having to book ICT spaces

The challenge was to refurbish a library foyer area and two open access corridor spaces. The i-cyber proved to be an ideal solution to de-clutter the library foyer as well as offering increased security and robustness and provide the two corridor spaces with 24 hour touch down IT access for students.
