The outlet strip does not exactly constitute one of the gems of design. Its design is more or less infl uenced by sheerly practical considerations. Once it has been worked into our domestic cable clutter, we try to hide it discreetly somewhere in our home setting — and we all know quite well what that looks like. This is exactly where Philipp Scholz comes from when he deliberately puts the focus on the power strip. Not only does he choose an entirely different material, i.e. wood, but he also equips this roundwood casing with a broomstick, or rather a plug-pole, at whose upper end you can also fi nd the switch for this multi-box. This is exceedingly handy — and looks much better than those plasticine brown-white-black plastic power strips.
