“My hatred for wires and cables has spiked up a few notches since making a move to a new apartment this weekend. The amount of hidden electronic tendrils unleashed upon dismantling my home office could probably be strung together to China (where probably most of this equipment originated) and back. And now at the new apartment, I’ve been reminded hiding necessities like powerstrips requires some planning, dictated by where nearby outlets have been situated. Sometimes you can’t hide away the mess through typical means. Cue in something like the Powerblock to block out the mess.
A future forward faceted plastic rock design cradles a powerstrip inside while also hiding low positioned wall sockets. It even flatpacks for simple shipment and construction. It’s been available in white for awhile now, with the black edition just announced, both for about $50.
