Aside from some interesting shapes theres really no way to upgrade or improve on shelves…or so I thought. Sung-Pil Hwang from the Nothing Design Group has created these prototypes which would plug into light sockets and not only emanate light but charge your different portable devices.
I think this is such a great design concept, they are not only chic in appearance but they are also very practical and functional. My boyfriend and I have a plethora of portable devices from gaming systems to ipods and they are always scattered about the house charging on various plugs. This shelf would be great to not only clean up that mess but provide storage for magazine, books, plants, etc all while looking very hip. Hopefully they will perfect this concept and get these on the market asap!
