Rotate Plug

iF concept design award

It would be difficult to imagine our lives without all the electronic appliances we now use on a daily basis. They make life so much more easy and convenient. What can be annoying, however, is the mess of electric cords that get knotted up easily. The use of this simple design allows the plug to rotate freely, prevents the electric cords from getting tangled and reduces the possibility of an electrical fire. The design of the power switch on the plug is environmentally friendly as only a gentle press switches it off.

Simple, yet effective. Diminishing possible risks of broken and damaged cords and wires, the plug also constitutes a practical safety solution.
