Okum is a studio based in Los Angeles that has updated the modern power cord. Instead of simply using the outlet attached to the wall, the team has designed this new product with an added layer of functionality.

The cord comes with additional power outlets, intertwined with maple wood blocks to ensure that the product looks good. Most people don't think to update power outlets to become a fashionable item, but the reality is that these things are scattered around the house on a daily basis. Having the Oon, as Okum studio has called it, combines both function and aesthetics with this design, making for a creative solution to a problem that not many have even thought about in the past.
