There's nothing worse than being too cold/hot in your shedworking environment. Thank heavens then for Herman Miller's C2 which they say provides micro climate control in a desk top personal appliance. They claim the C2 is an "environmentally friendly, energy saving solution that enables individualized temperature control". It is 10" tall and looks a bit like a white pear, using technology from the automotive industry so that at the touch of button you get a personal stream of cooling or warming air, with temperatures ranging from 65 to 101 degrees Fahrenheit. It also includes an air filter to improve air quality and because it uses thermo-electric technology there are no exposed coils, chemicals or harmful emissions. You can run it continuously. "We know people are most productive and satisfied in their work when they have the tools and personal control that allow them to work in the comfort and manner they prefer," says Robyn Hofmeyer, General Manager of the The Be Collection, Herman Miller's range for workers in all offices.
