New Tech-Drawer from Mark Wilkinson Furniture
Mark Wilkinson Furniture has launched a new Tech-Drawer to charge Internet-connected mobile devices. The design adds up to, four USB connection points into the body of a standard drawer (eight for a double drawer) and can also house standard three-pin plug points.
"Homeowners these days have a collection of devices to fill their family lives," says the manufacturer.
"In fact houses are becoming full of smart phones, tablets, reading devices and laptops and the tangles of cables required to keep them operating is becoming more and more challenging to manage - so much so that houses are running short of wall mounted power-points and family members are having to queue to keep their phones charged."
To help solve this challenge, Mark Wilkinson's design team has redesigned the single and double drawer in its kitchen, study and bedroom furniture to facilitate connection to charge-wires or to power wireless charging pads.
The picture shows two devices under charge in a plain drawer, although, being a bespoke manufacturer it is possible to have divider sections fitted, much as they are in a cutlery drawer, to accept the different types of device and to store individual charging cables.
