Shelf (2018 Personal Exploration)

Portless Trend

The way in which we power our devices is inconsistent with the way our devices can be powered. Shelf was a systems approach meant to explore how to decentralize power in the spaces we spend the most time and free us from our ties to the nearest outlet.


My first step of development was creating a powerbrick that could charge small wireless devices such as phones or an watch. I used the Qi standard and studied existing powerbooks and chargers.

Shelf Charging Station

The Shelf system is inspired by the idea of the borrow and return nature of shelves. Users will take out a power brick to use within a given space and return them to be charged when finished.
