Design by Scott Wilson, 2010.
PowerPod is an artful solution to the mundane task of plugging in. Two functions are delivered in one beautiful package: convenient tabletop access to six power outlets, disguised when not in use by an accessory storage tray. An energy-saving on/off switch with an indicator light reduces vampire power consumption. Surge-suppression is built in with a circuit reset button on the underside and a blinking light safety feature indicates when connected to non-grounded outlets. Made of ABS with UV-filter that prevents yellowing, the Powerpod is accented with brushed aluminum.
Material(s): ABS, aluminum
Dimensions: 6.75" Dia X 6" H
Designer: Scott Wilson
