Blue Spark Table by Skrewgun


Inspired by wanting to reduce the visual clutter of all the electronic devices we charge every day, designer Sean Barrow's Blue Spark table uses a smart combination of organic materials, metal and technology to create a beautiful, functional piece of furniture. Made from pin oak sourced from an urban forestry program in Olympia, Washington, the table hides six outlets -- for charging your cellphone, iPod and whatever else needs to be sporadically plugged in -- behind the serene glow of a blue LED light; flip the switch in the back, and the whole table "turns off", cutting the power and cutting back on phantom loads while providing a functional side table. Says designer Barrow, "I feel that some morning I am going to wake up and this thing is going to be in my kitchen, making some coffee and frying up some eggs."
