概要

The CableBox is a clever container for hiding & tidying the mess of tangled cables usually found behind the computer, the TV, or under the desk.  It is big enough to hold most power strips, surge protectors & electrical extensions, as well as the ever growing number of accessory power cables themselves. Two slots either side of the Cablebox enable the power cables & strips to be placed in the box in a couple of minutes, and then the lid closed, without even needing to unplug the power cables. Dust accumulation is reduced, as is fire risk. The house & office cleaning is also simplified.

受賞対象の詳細

応募対象が達成しようとした目標

Power cables for the home entertainment and computer equipment clusters is an ever growing phenomenon as the number of electrical devices increase daily. The numerous power cables, strips and adaptors become entangled, collect dust, and present a real fire risk. The CableBox organizes this clutter into a single dust free container, quickly installed with no interruption to power supply.

デザイナーのコメント

I sought to create a simple solution to the tangle, risk & cleanliness problems everyone experiences today with power cable clutter. Preferably the solution should not require unplugging or re-configuring entire wiring systems, but simply to conceal any existing clutter while allowing easy access to the cables whenever required. The solution should also provide an easier to clean living space.

使用者、社会等への取り組み

どのような使用者・利用者を想定したか

All households, offices and commercial premises environments experience power cable clutter in one way or another. The CableBox therefore has a very wide application to those individuals or enterprises wishing to: 1. esthetically improve their personal or professional environment 2. increase safely & reduce fire risk, 3. eliminate accidental tampering

その使用者・利用者にどのような価値を実現したか

The clear major benefit is to create a safe, clean and clutter free area around the desk, TV, multi-media clusters, cash desks, communication centres that is economic and easy to install & maintain. The esthetic design ensures that the CableBox is an unobtrusive addition in any home or business environment

社会・文化および地球環境の視点から解決すべき問題点

Cablebox gives people an ultra simple solution to manage all those cords around power strip.

その問題点に対し、どのように対応したか

Virtually every product purchased today comes with AC adapter to plug in and charge. People therefore use a power strip, creating a large tangle of cords and dust traps that are hard to clean.

審査委員の評価

ほこりがたまりやすく、見た目にも心地よくない延長コード周り。これに対する商品はいろいろあるが、これは最小限の部材と整理されディテールで、生活の中に存在する他の電気器具などのたたずまいに近いものになっている。
