Forget wireless charging hubs. ZENS has just unveiled a Qi wireless charger that can be built into nearly any piece of furniture. Desks, bedside tables, and chairs all qualify, allowing you to take your tech obsession to the next level.

The Netherlands-based company says that the new integrated wireless charger has been developed to take advantage of a burgeoning wireless charging trend in homes, offices, and even hotels around the globe. The integrated nature of the charger means that you don’t have to worry about cable management, making for a fuss-free experience that is also easy on the eye.

The ZENS charger makes use of the Qi wireless charging standard and will supposedly work with over 500 Qi-certified products on the market today. This includes the latest Samsung Galaxy phones, the last four generations of Google Nexus devices, and the recently-announced Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL.

ZENS will provide you with a grinder for making the hole for the built-in wireless charger, so you don’t need to worry about getting the dimensions wrong. The charger will then cover the hole up, which should ideally create quite a seamless look.

If you eat meals at your desk, you’ll also be happy to know that ZENS has designed the wireless charger to be resistant to water, coffee, or other liquid spills. We imagine that it’s quite a hassle to have to pry a damaged charger from your desk, so this is definitely a welcome feature.

It is slated to retail in early November at select stores and online sellers for €49.99.
