Loops & Cheese A cable management sculpture by David Hsu

Home > Winners > #52588


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Loops & Cheese

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
A cable management sculpture

INSPIRATION:
While cooking a pasta dish for the family one evening, and seeing an iPhone cable left on the ground that was intended to be on the table ready for the next charge, I started thinking about using ribbons looped in a way so that cables could be nestled within, and placed on the edge of the table so the cable would not fall off. While searching for some cheese in fridge to add to the pasta, I came across some swiss, which provided inspiration for the holes that saves on material.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Designed to be produced on demand by 3D printing, Loops & Cheese's nylon-based form is flexible yet strong, perfect for minimizing stress on cables. Since cable management systems for desktops they should not be eye sores. If you cannot hide it, then display it proudly.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Slip the device onto the edge of the table, then rest the cables either between the loops for easy removal, or through the loops for a more permanent placement.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project was conceptualized, prototyped, and production started in 2013

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
3D Printed with Laser Sintering, Nylon.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Available in 3 Sizes. Table Thickness 1: 50mm x 60mm x 25mm Table Thickness 2: 50mm x 65mm x 25mm Table Thickness 3: 50mm x 78mm x 25mm

TAGS:
3d Printing, 3d printed, SLS, Cable Management

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
Part of the reasons for using 3D printing as a production method was to take advantage of the fact that it could be on-demand and more local - where a machine would be available to the consumer. However, the cost is still rather prohibitive especially when durability is taken into consideration. Today, 3 years later, this is still a problem that we hope will resolve itself with more time.
