Finnish wire-free charging system Powerkiss which can be integrated into furniture has attracted wide international interest and is now ready for global launch. The business idea developed by young designers has been supported by notable collaborators such as Artek, Isku and Martela.
According to the founder and CEO of Powerkiss, industrial designer Maija Itkonen the company has received enquiries about the device already from over 40 countries.
The wire-free Powerkiss charging experience requires a “Heart” transmitter, which is installed underneath the table, and a “Ring” receiver, which is plugged into the mobile device, such as a mobile phone or a portable computer. The device charges automatically, when the device is placed on the table within the range of the transmitter. Charging takes place as quickly as when being charged through an ordinary socket.
Powerkiss offers a range of adapters, suited for instance for new models of Nokia, Samsung and Apple smartphones.
Majority of Powerkiss devices are used in public spaces such as airports and hotels.
