Win Amazon Echo by naming our new “HOT” Desk

Since the arrival of desks in the middle of the 17th Century, the desk as we know it – a hard-flat top or surface placed on legs or supports – has evolved very little and is essentially the same today as it has always been, designed for a single purpose only.

However, the modern desk as we know it is about to take a giant leap forward with the introduction of a heated desk from i-desk Solutions. The desk will no longer be just a piece of furniture to study and write at, but also an efficient heater, to keep you and your surrounding area warm!

Heat the Person Not the Room



Research by the Dutch research institute TNO (Dutch Organization for Applied Scientific Research) shows that contact heating through the wrists is the most efficient way to warm the body. If the undersides of the wrists are warm, the whole body will be warm. By working at a computer, using the mouse, or writing, the wrists are placed on a cold desk top. Using similar technology to underfloor heating panels, the heated desks use a fraction of the energy and power consumption experienced with conventional radiators and heaters.



Heated desk key features & benefits:

  • Significant energy cost savings and reduced carbon footprint
  • Infrared heating film delivering comfortable spot heating
  • Improved wellness and wellbeing of students
