- We have chosen it because… It’s not nice to have cables, wires and sockets always lying around or tangled on shelves and coffee tables. And it’s rather messy too. However, in this day and age we really cannot live without our smartphones, pcs, tables and mp3s. But, if we go for these brilliant pieces (clean, simple, streamlined, and functional), we will be able to recharge our devices everywhere we want without the need for chargers and sockets. What’s more, pieces from the Composition and the On The Surface series can be assembled together and taken to any room we want, so our home will always be tidy and tailor made.
