Karl Zahn brings order to chaos in these clever cord designs. Working to develop entries for design competitions and his own portfolio, these Karl Zahn creations come primarily from his ‘Repurposing Technology’ and ‘Covers’ projects.

The industrial designer’s collection features Wall Cleats for wrapping excess extension cords, Covering Plates to mask unsightly wall damage, Picket Fences for concealing cable chaos and my favorite, the Energy Savings piggy bank, which turns an old power plug into a tucked-away treasury. Karl Zahn is the ultimate designer handyman. Stats for Clever Cord Hardware Trending: Older & Buzzing
