Power Strip (1) represents an innovative evolution of the traditional white power strip and aims to revive the fascination with technology. Unlike the conventional multiple socket, often inconspicuously hidden in the home, Power Strip (1) is designed to be placed prominently on the desk to provide power to portable devices.

Power Strip (1) is equipped with two EURO sockets, a SCHUKO socket, an inductive charging panel and a 65-watt power supply that has four USB-C ports, one of which has a fast-charging function. The arrangement of the charging ports defines a clear hierarchy for the connected devices, making lower-voltage devices more accessible than higher-voltage ones.

Power Strip (1) also provides the ability to turn the entire multi-outlet on or off with a single push button. To make the current state of the multi-outlet visible, the push button remains in the depressed position when the outlet is on and provides light feedback after each state change.

The LED strips are not only for visual design, but also inform users about its power consumption. The two LED strips have different lengths, and only the shorter one lights up when low-voltage connections are used. This means that only the longer LED strip lights up when higher voltage devices are connected.

On the bottom of Power Strip (1) there is a space for neatly routing the power cable, which runs through side outlets and can be fixed with the help of a rotating cable clamp.

Overall, Power Strip (1) features a distinctive transparent design and is an outstanding addition to any desk. It symbolizes the importance of electricity and supports users in their everyday lives.
