wirepod by joris laarman

from artecnica:

'WirePod is a flexible gray power pod that begins with a three-prong plug and branches out into four curled arms, each with a single three-prong socket. Its arms and body roll and unfurl as needed to adjust for your functional living space. WirePod is the first piece in Artecnica’s Wiremore™ collection, a series of electrical products that challenge conventions by transforming power cords and wires from concealed objects into visible, active design elements that energize living and working spaces.'

designed by joris laarman, this won the 'best new product' award at the new york international gift fair. it reminds me of a radiator that he designed, which was one of my first blog posts (here). another really good power cord concept is the 'containership power' by giffin'termeer, which i did a post on here. as far as i know, neither of the power cords can actually be bought (unfortunately), and i'm sure they will both have high price tags when and if they are, but they both look great!
