Uses of nanotechnology furniture

Scientists have been studying nanometers for years, but it’s only recently that engineers have been able to develop the technology needed to create an amazing array of applications such as waterproof clothing, cosmetics, sports equipment, bandages that help wounds heal more quickly, computers, mechanisms for targeted drug delivery, socks that reduce foot odour, as well as scratch-resistant office desks and chairs.

Here’s the nanoscience bit… concentrate!

A nanometer is mind-bogglingly small – about one 80,000th of the width of a human hair. According to Nanotech for Dummies, “Nanotechnology is the study and use of structures between 1 nanometer (nm) and 100 nanometers in size”, involving the fine-tuning of “materials at atomic, molecular and macromolecular scales, where properties differ significantly from those at a larger scale” in order to produce materials that are different from those that would occur naturally.

Nanotech desks

When it comes to office furniture, nanotechnology produces a material that has a number of advantages:

  • Although it feels soft, it’s tough, really tough!
  • It’s resistant to dry heat, which basically means you won’t have to use a coaster when putting your cup of tea down.
  • It’s resistant to abrasion and even if it does get marked by tiny scratches, they can be ‘healed’.
  • It’s water repellant.
  • It’s easy to clean, and even tough stains can be removed with non-abrasive household cleaners.
  • With a matt finish, it’s non-reflective.

Cleaning instructions

It’s about as simple as you get when it comes to cleaning. Most of the time all you’ll need is a non-abrasive cloth and warm water. If you want to be more thorough, use a non-abrasive household cleaner too.

For tougher stains, check the Care Guide to find out more about the cleaning tools and products you can and cannot use.

The Care Guide also gives instructions on how to heal tiny scratches on nanotech surfaces with an iron and some kitchen paper. It not only feels like magic, it also means your nanotech office furniture will look great for longer.

Customer Reviews…

The service provided was first class and I only have positive things to say about the experience. From the outset at the planning stage, right through to the installation, Mike kept us fully informed and up to date with delivery times, etc. I would be more than happy to recommend Quills to anyone who might be looking for any quantity of new furniture.

Catch 22

Quills team members were always responsive, knowledgeable, proactive and have been a pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend Quills to colleagues and other companies for works of this nature.

From the start of the project everything was handled excellently and nothing was too much trouble. Top quality service.

The Dogs Trust

Very efficient service with timely quotation and delivery.  Stock was held centrally when we were unable to accept delivery at office premises and this was arranged at no additional charge. We were very happy with the furniture purchased and delivery and installation went smoothly.
