Colony: The Wire Pot
Colony: The Wire Pot¥28,000 from Balmuda
The concept is simple enough on this one: conceal the location where your power strip and your ten million computer-related power cables meet. For your viewing pleasure, the jumble can now be contained in this elegant porcelain pot. Although the site is in Japanese and I don't speak a word of it, they seem to be making a reference to traditional Japanese ceramics in the design, but with a distinctly modern use. Not sure if they'll ship outside of Japan. Also not sure I'd want a hugely expensive porcelain pot sitting under my desk, waiting to get smashed by my clumsy feet. Pretty anyways.
