The need for electricity is omnipresent - whether for work, study or public living space. Especially in cafés, visitors are always looking for ways to easily charge their devices. "Boon" presents itself as an innovation that offers a solution to the long-standing problem of cables running across the room, while also creating an efficient as well as theft-proof power infrastructure. This is done by hanging sockets from the ceiling in a similar way to lamps. This product innovation ensures a comprehensive power supply in cafés. An integrated power supply only requires a dedicated USB-C cable.

The light switches off when touched, and users can pull the socket down to them using a pulley function. This approach takes advantage of the existing ceiling infrastructure in cafes and restaurants, which is ideally suited for the use of track systems. The socket/lamp module is integrated into these systems and can be adjusted in length according to the specific requirements of the location. In addition to its functional practicality, this product impresses with its simple choice of colors, harmonious design language and high functionality, creating an elegant solution to an everyday problem. Seamless integration into the café environment ensures an aesthetically pleasing overall appearance.
