Woodie Milano has launched a crowdfunding campaign for their latest project, Woodie Hub, a modern power strip to support your mobile devices.
We have been hiding away our power strips for years and with good reason. Although we all need to charge our devices, an ever increasing challenge these days with phones, laptops, tablets and more, we would rather not look at those white plastic extension cords. By hiding these power strips away however we limit their use and we increase our annoyance level yet again. I myself am also guilty of walking to the other side of the living room to charge my phone, since it never lasts the entire day, rather than to have the power strip next to me.
When looking at the power strip, you’ll notice it has hardly changed for decades and where the technology may have been cool somewhere in 1972, it’s outdated in 2016. So with an outdated design and outdated technology, it’s only a wonder why it took so long to really change. Some people tried to make them look better and some tried to update the outdated technology, but for some reason nobody bothered to tackle both issues at once. At least, nobody until now.
The Woodie Hub was designed to create a power strip which is meant to be shown, rather than hidden, filled with all forms of relevant charging options. The sockets will accept plugs from 150+ countries in the world and are already certified. The USB cannot be missed anymore these days, with so many devices using it. And with the introduction of the Qi Wireless charging, the Woodie Hub could of course not stay behind.
With versions available in Wood, Concrete and Marble there will always be one for any interior design. An evolution of the power strip, after decades of stagnation. If you love this evolution as much as we do, we would ask you to support us here.
Tuvie has received “WoodieHub” project from our ‘Submit A Design‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their design/concept for publication.
