The Handsome Kinodai Gadget Hub Holds Your Handsets While They Charge

The Kinodai might first appear to be low-tech, but turn it upside-down and you'll find that it's quite receptive to contemporary technology. The object isn't simply an organizer for your devices, it's a really charming handset holder that functions as a charging hub.

Three lovely layers of pale wood go into manufacturing Takashi Kirimoto's piece. The subtle but visible wood grain pattern gives it a really pleasant appearance, and four slots arranged on angles give the look of casual tidiness when they're filled. The two large slits are for iPads and the smaller ones are for a pair of smartphones.

With the bases of your gadgets fed through these gaps, it's easy to connect their cables. These can be threaded through a hole in the bottom and plugged into the wall; otherwise, the wires can be wound up and hidden underneath the Kinodai.
