The Butler Home Organizer/Wall Clock by Curtis Micklish

Home > Winners > #28203


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Butler

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Home Organizer/Wall Clock

INSPIRATION:
The main inspiration for this piece came from the frustration I have with not finding my go-to items, as well as the general messiness they seem to create as they previously had no real home within the home, unlike most other things in the home. I enjoy finding a unique function within the design so the Butler was no exception.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It seems like at least once a week you can’t find your keys, or wallet, or …, so the Butler was created in an attempt to resolve this predicament. This design is made to fit your wallet and keys in the top sleeve, your iphone on the side slot with a concealed space for your charging cord, and glasses/hat/scarf or whatever other go-to item on the slide out walnut piece. The backside includes a routed out section for your charging cord as well as an extension cord in case your mounting area on the wall is not next to a outlet.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Unlike most iphone docks that are just that, a dock, this piece creates a home for all the items that you carry in your pocket, and keeps them all in one organized place, ready to for your next trip out the door.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
I began drawing concepts for this piece in January 2012. After a couple different prototypes, I came up with a finished product and began sharing it to design media and producing it May 2012.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This piece is handmade by myself using a combination of baltic birch plywood and Black Walnut. One of the main concentrations I had when designing this piece was to ensure it would work with the constantly changing iphone dimensions. With than in mind, the height can vary from version to version on an iphone, but the width changes frequently, so integrating the sliding piece allows it to fit and work linearly for years to come, with which ever version phone you have.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
10" x 9" 2 1/2"

TAGS:
Butler, iphone dock, home orgaizer, wall clock

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I use the same technique for most of my designs, whereby I look to solve a problem I see in my own home. In this case, the problem was two part: (1) Wasting time searching for my keys, phone, wallet and glasses in the moring (2) Having a house with keys, phone, wallet and glasses strewn about in a disorderly fashion. With the problem at hand, the thought process began to create something that couple organize all these items in to one nice, modern piece.

CHALLENGE:
The creative challenge was figuring out how to put 5 different things in one fairly hidden place, and mainitaining an organized and minimalistic aesthetic. How can you group these things together in a place that actually would be pleasing to the eye?
