BEAUTIFUL DESIGN WITH LATEST TECHNOLOGIES

Create a dynamic atmosphere with a ddb workspace solution. Encourage employees to engage and communicate

  • The unique and beautiful range of ddb office designs are built to inspire and promote creativity. With technological advancement comes change.
  • A ddb workspace solution has been developed to integrate seamlessly with technology and adapt to the demands of the modern office. With clever cable management systems and choice of desktop controls, a ddb desk promotes a tidy and safe working environment.

COLOUR, FEATURES AND FLEXIBILITY

A ddb workspace solution can be created to compliment a specific style, theme, colour or corporate identity.

  • With a huge choice of colours and high-grade surfaces, a ddb desk can be designed and produced to suit a specific need or brief. A ddb desk is upgradeable which means it can be adapted to any environment or change in use.
  • All desks are made using the highest quality sustainable materials and can withstand some of the toughest environments, making them last for many years. That’s why a ddb desk offers incredible total cost of ownership and return on investment.

WELLBEING AND COMFORT

The wellbeing of the user is foremost in mind when creating a ddb workplace desk. If heat, light and posture is addressed, a healthy, comfortable and productive workplace is achieved.

  • Our sit-stand designs are programmed to encourage people to move more by using a clever 4 positioned electronic actuator feature. Our i-heat technology is available on a number of desk top options and is developed to provide users with localised heat to the individual, therefore helping to reduce fuel bills and maintain comfortable working environment.
  • The beautiful sleek Aerodesk has a light bar feature which offers a choice of light colours including one that simulates natural daylight. Great for those dark or winter days.

WORKING FROM HOME?

However, sitting for hours at a dining table or with your feet up on the sofa with a laptop balancing on your legs might seem perfectly reasonable right now but, have you ever wondered why employers don’t expect you to work on household furniture in the office?

Poor workspace and facilities can cause all sorts of health risks, with joint stiffness and back pain being the most common complaints.

ddb Ltd have created the homeworker range of space friendly desks with all the necessary features that your office desk would normally provide. The ddb homeworker desk fits neatly into your house, whatever the size and ensures optimum positioning and comfort to help you remain motivated and healthy.

The desk designs are easy to build and provide a sturdy, yet highly practical and compact workspace. Standard features include:

  • Adjustable Monitor Arm
  • Laptop Tray at the back
  • USB charger
  • Embedded wireless charger
  • Keyboard tilt function
  • Cable tidy port
  • Choice of colours and sizes

All ddb desks are made using sustainable materials but did you know that selected lines can be made from 100% recycled plastics?

OUR REVIEWS

You should be rightly proud of the hard work and vision put into what will be an excellent student resource. I do!!!! [love it] Brilliant. …what a fabulous result It looks amazing

"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."

"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"

Mike Lavelle

Executive Head Teacher at Lincroft School
“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.”
