Each of them is hand made, with high ethical standards maintained for workers. They’ve made it to Warwick thanks to a collaboration between the Estates Office, the Energy GRP team and the Library.
The desks feature standard 3-pronged British plugs, so make sure you have the correct adapter with you.
