SwitchOff / Wireless Charging Pad


How could we reconnect with nature and with our inner selves?
That is what SwitchOff is made for. It is a wireless charging pad for your smartphone that disable all your notifications while in use in order to avoid any kind of distraction. SwitchOff comes with an app designed for energy efficiency in OLED screens where you can set the time and program your meditation schedule. The pad also plays nature sounds and flashes a calming light to provide a complete immersion experience. It's shape was inspired by pebble rocks and it comes in two neutral colors combined with raw fabrics. SwitchOff was designed to help you heal your body and mind.
