The modern desk as we know it, is about to take a giant and radical evolutionary leap forward with the introduction of the i-heat desk from DDB Ltd.
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. Traditional heaters and radiators heat the room from the top down and are expensive to run, a heated desk from DDB Ltd. has anintegrated heating element panel in the desk top that heats both the underside and surface of the desk producing spot radiant heating to the legs and hands of the user, specifically the wrists.
The i-heat uses a fraction of the energy and power consumption experienced with conventional radiators and heaters. When switched on, a heated desk draws on approximately 60 watts of power compared to a normal radiator that can draw up to 3 kilowatts. This technology has the potential to reduce energy costs and significantly lower your carbon footprint.
