plug.x is a modular plug system for electronic devices. The system consists of two parts: a specific power plug and a variety of exchangeable extensions. A particular coupling mechanism allows to easily attach and detach all kinds of extensions with aesthetic or practical functions. Besides simple geometric forms in different sizes and colors, the user can also mount functional extensions like cable holders, hooks or brackets.
We realized a lack of options to integrate the look of the cable and plug into the design of electronic devices. However, the power supply is an integral part of every electronic device and should therefore be designed just as the object itself.
High-end design objects like lamps rely on their sculptural appearance and integration into the living space. Every electronic device needs an outlet and a connection to it.
With plug.x we offer designers, manufactures and end-users an easy and flexible way to customize the appearance of their devices into the living space. Designers get the opportunity to continue their design through to the outlet, while end-users gain the freedom to personalize it to their individual surrounding and preferences.
plug.x is not only about making things look good, it also brings practical benefit by offering functional extensions for a variety of use cases.
