What if power plugs were art pieces, instead of generic items made from plastic? This project was part of a course about designing form and building high quality models.

I applied the theory in the development of Sier, a power extension cord especially made for placement on table corners.

Power extension cords are normally hidden away. Placing them on table corners makes the sockets easier to reach.

The color and materials like the linen cable refer to interiors from the past.

The rounded corners and line pattern are inspired by the Amsterdam Metro stations designed by Sier van Rhijn.
