Power strips are a dime a dozen, but only a few can be considered innovative. The usual power extensions you see are dull. Only a few have stepped up their game, but with technology and product design getting more interesting, we can expect more remarkable power strips will be introduced.
The Turney is a concept design that shows us how innovation can further make our lives easier. However, there is the common problem of twisted cables and lines plus dust all over. You don’t want messy wires and a cluttered work area, so you need to find solutions.
Designer: Yeeun Son
The Turney is a concept power strip designed by Yeeun Son. The South Korean designer knows about a cluttered space’s fire and electrical hazards. So as a simple solution, the designer turned the power strip upside down. This prevents dust as dirty lines are covered. You can also use the power strip as a charger. It can also be used as a wireless charger by tweaking, like adding a wireless charging coil on the surface.
The Turney comes with four power strip outlets. There are two USB ports at the bottom that can be used for most mobile devices. It’s highly recommended you turn over the strip to cover the cables and wires. This way, people won’t trip over the outlet. In addition, there is no danger of electrocution because it is covered.
Power strips are dust magnets, but with the Turney, you don’t have to worry about them. Standard power strips are really unsightly, but you can hide them with this product design. An upside-down power strip is an intelligent solution. We’re certain somebody has thought about this before, but the Turney has more appeal. Furthermore, the upside-down orientation will not affect most gadgets or devices as you can still charge them quickly.
The Turney Power Strip offers a minimalist appeal as it covers the unsightly wires. It can help in keeping an interior’s minimalist aesthetic. The Turney can simply make things look less cluttered each day. There is that white cover that keeps everything bright and clean. The black on top where devices can be charged wirelessly offers a nice contrast but other colors are also available.
We have seen a number of uniquely-designed power strips in the past. We remember the Multi-Tab Power Strip from a decade ago. The Wall-Ti Tap Power Strip also hides the ugly wires and cables. The O’ket power strip combines and switches up plug arrangements depending on your need. The Turney is a new concept that we think can sell if it goes into production.
