This second-year Industrial Design project challenge was to design a home organization product that was limited to only metal and wood.
 I decided to tackle power cord management. It's a constant headache trying to untangle wires and cords at your work space, especially when using multiple devices that all need power. I wanted to apply some compact organization to this tangled cord madness, and create an elegant object for the tabletop. 
 I combined a few of my ideas into a standalone desktop unit. I prototyped it in plywood to get the proportions and functionality right.
 These are 1:1 scale, charcoal and pastel rendered, orthographic views of the product.
 I machined the metal base out of steel so that it was heavy and would stay in one place. This is the final prototype I presented.
