The 'Switch' phone charging stand is a sleek wireless charger that takes inspiration from ocean waves. Rather than being sleek and high-tech, the curvaceous design is sculpted from American Walnut, which sits below a sleek ceramic surface. On the ceramic surface, the design uses a series of micro-suction caps in order to get a grip on the smooth back of a cell phone.

Even though the phone doesn't need to be hooked up to any wires in order to charge itself, it delivers a charge of 1,000 mA within about a 5-7 mm distance, with about 73% accuracy. Some of today's smartphones are now coming with the ability to be charged without cables right of the box, but if you find yourself still tangled up in cords, this is a clever way to give yourself some freedom.
