using mobile products, seoul-based design studio PESI — an acronym of possibility, essential, standpoint, interpretation — has communicated new interpretations and possibilities of experiences through a design-partnership named ‘creative square’ with samsung electronics co., ltd. as the use of mobile products is increasing, the studio analyzed not only the form and function of the product itself, but also the environment where the mobile product is used will change significantly.
the ‘on the surface’ and ‘composition’ collections
instead of using complex, and bothersome USB connectors, PESI created two wireless charging products generating an environment that naturally mixes in with the living space. ‘on the surface’ is a design of wireless-charging product converged with table accessories. based on the inherent form of the existing flat wireless-charging product, we have visualized the convergence as if a table accessory rises to water surface. it has a detachable wireless charging module on the bottom surface and shows another use of each case type even when it is not in use. container, clock, mirror, speaker and tray — a total of five types of cases are available and compatible with basic wireless-charging modules.

‘composition’ is a tray-type design of wireless charging product expandable to various tray furnitures. it offers a wireless charging environment in one perfect furniture form, rather than another electronic product. by combining the structure at the bottom of the tray, it can be expanded into new furniture types and various combinations can be made with the colors and materials. the battery is built-in so that once it is fully charged, consumers just remove the cable and move it freely into living spaces.
