An object aimed to help you create a more comfortable workstation at home. Likable, fun, and aesthetically pleasing. Introducing: co.
The concept of the cable organizer design started with an observation following a happy accident: “My phone charger’s cable wrapped around my lozenges for sore throat in my backpack, then I started to ideate whether I can use this phenomenon to design a cable organizer,” co. creator Ádám Miklósi explains on his website. Inspired by the cylindrical shape of the pastille packaging, the freelance designer used Shapr3D and V-ray software to bring his vision to life and then prototyped the virtual 3D models. These took took shape in a range of materials from plaster, to 3D-printed FDM and silicone, and to CNC-milled aluminum.
“I checked various use cases and decided to make 3 different types of cable holder in mini (2x2), medium (3x3), and large (2x5) sizes,” he continues. And as the cables are bending around the cylinders, the system supports them securely without damaging them, with the possibility of stacking two cables in a row.
If you want to have a go at co., the cable system’s digital production files will soon be accessible to anyone, but in the future, it is also planned to be available for purchase as a ready-to-use product. For details, follow Ádám Miklósi’s Instagram page.
In the meantime, explore the design journeys behind the creator’s previous projects: the Red Dot award–winning Slē sled made with plywood and kerf technology, the cheap and mass-producible Simple face shield developed during the pandemic, or the details behind the Uppgradera collection consisting of 3D-printed accessories that help overcome the annoying flaws of popular IKEA household products.
