Wall-Mounted Power Bars

The Free Socket is a hybrid between a traditional wall-mounted outlet and a power bar. It is installed into the wall where it rests until a person needs an outlet at another part of the room where there is easy no access to one. The Free Socket is removed from its base and is extended where needed. By marrying the two, the Free Socket allows people to always have a power extension on hand without the hassle of its getting in the way or becoming misplaced when not in use.

Designed by East China Normal University, the Free Socket is not only equipped with an extension cord, it also is multi-tapped and boasts a USB socket. It is a 2012 iF Design Talents entry.
