This rather beautiful piece of design is the ES 01 extension socket, created by Georges Moanack for Punkt. The idea was to make this ubiquitous household item attractive enough to be part of the room rather than a dusty ball of cordage, hidden under the table. “I wanted to make crawling under furniture to untangle cables a thing of the past, and the design challenge was to find an attractive and accessible solution to this problem,” – says Moanack. The piece features a sleek removable lead, 5 strategically positioned sockets, single power switch, C clip to keep those wires in order and an overload protection. It comes in  a range of versions to comply with the different power supply standards of different countries. Available in three Punkt. signature colors – white, black and red.
