when electricity turns into design

Design by Tengbom


Swap cable chaos for Swedish design. Iris 
Powerhub challenges the traditional multiple sockets and sets a new industry standard in terms of both design and function.

“No one enjoys cable chaos” sums up the insight behind the exciting project and collaboration between Kondator and the Swedish architect firm Tengbom. Since there were no attractive traditional multiple socket solutions on the market, we simply took matters into our own hands and created a world unique, sleek and flexible electrical solution. Without compromising on either function or appearance.

The result; Iris Powerhub – designed for stylish and portable charging.

From dull sockets to stylish design gadgets

Iris was born in the focal point of aesthetics, technology, innovation, and sustainability. Plastic and angular shapes have been replaced by a circular design, wrapped in gray or sand-colored felt. With four electrical outlets as well as two USB charging sockets and a hidden cord winder, Iris not only excels in user-friendliness but also in attention to detail. 

Throughout the design process, sustainability has been a priority. Iris consists of carefully selected materials – how about a felt mat created from recycled PET.

Iris Powerhub with its soft shape and minimalistic expression is a flexible yet beautiful solution to cable chaos in all environments.

Advantages of Iris

Innovative and world unique 
Iris is a one-of-a-kind invention and world unique on the market - a powerhub that was born out of the need for a branch outlet that was both stylish and functional.

A stylish piece of furniture
Although electricity is one of our most important functions, we usually do everything to hide ugly sockets and cords away. With Iris Powerhub, the focus was instead on design. With its soft shape and stripped-down expression, Iris is as much a stylish piece of furniture in the room as a charging station.

The new campfire to gather round
In today’s society, we constantly seem to be on the look-out for electrical points to charge a mobile phone, computer, tablet or any other electrical gadget. Iris is the solution to the ever-increasing demands that portable technology places on access to easily accessible and portable charging. At a time when the charge is also often shared with work colleagues, friends and family, Iris Powerhub becomes a beautiful solution to cable chaos in all environments or the new campfire to gather around.

Throughout whole the design process, sustainability has been in focus. Iris consists of carefully selected materials where, among other things, the felt mat is created from recycled PET.

Flexible and fantastic function
With four electrical outlets as well as two USB charging sockets and a long cord winder, Iris Powerhub is unbeatable in both level of detail and user-friendliness. Iris is also easy and flexible to move around as needed. The felt-covered lid also hides all contacts in a nice way.
