Green, versatile energy for devices that are always charged

Mateusz Haberny’s laboratory is located on the outskirts of the small town of Ciche in Poland, nestled between fir trees and wooden houses at the foot of the Tatra Mountains. About five years ago, Haberny decided to use his woodworking skills to build an iPhone charging station. His enormous success led to the birth of Oak wooda company that now has a team of more than 25 employees committed to “reinventing the workspace.”

The product range is very diverse and includes customizable standing desks and headphone stands, all made from sustainably sourced materials. The wood used is FSC-certified, the felt is cruelty-free and the cork comes from responsible cultivation in Portugal. Oakywood collaborates with A tree planted, a non-profit organization committed to global reforestation: a portion of the profits from each sale are spent on planting trees and Oakywood is particularly committed to areas affected by environmental disasters. And locally he works with the Polish non-profit organization Las na Zawsze (“Forest Forever”), which has been protecting forests across Poland since 2019.

The charger MagSafe (not included) fits comfortably and the cable stays tidy. Place your iPhone (12, 13, 14) on it: it sticks perfectly to the plate MagSafe and stays on the stand at an ideal angle of 25 degrees. An adjustment is neither possible nor necessary. The aesthetics are wonderful and the only thing that can ruin your phone is dents. But the Oakywood craftsmen can’t do anything about it.

According to Professor Margo Neale of the National Museum of Australia, “Indigenous Australians have always left distinctive marks on everyday objects, so this idea simply keeps the tradition current.” Particularly the oven Dhuuyaay Smart Oven, with all-over decoration, is also practical: grilling, toasting, roasting, cooking at low temperatures and air frying. Profits from the sale will go to three charities that support Aboriginal people with programs focused on education, health and access to work.
