When you do a search for OKUM (the Los Angeles based brand behind this cool alternative power outlet) the tag line is "Memorable Everyday Objects". That says it all really, and we are so pleased to be able to showcase this everyday object today.
The oon multi-outlet power cord is a creative and considered solution to the invaluable white plastic versions most of us have in our interiors. As with all great design, it is a simple merging of the function and form that reflects the way that we use this product today.
The timber spheres don't just look good but help to stop the cord from twisting and tangling, and the cubes contain the sockets, polarised for safety.
With most households having a multiple range of devices that require charging, or have bulky adapters, the oon has been designed to accommodate that, with three electrical sockets able to rotate and flex, ensuring that we don't have to battle to squeeze everything next to one another!
There is a choice of three colour ways, corresponding zigzag cords and the timber is a beautiful Connecticut maple that goes through an eleven step process to transform from the rough cut timber to the smooth finished product.
The result is a product that lives up to the brand ethos of memorable and everyday - we absolutely love it, and will be lobbying to widen production to cater not just for the U.S market!
