Daniel Wehrli, Plug in Baby. Why should designers care about accessories? Plug in Baby originated as a redesign of a once well known product. One that almost disappeared despite its practicality. The so called bootjack is a small tool which aids in the removal of boots if they are dirty, heavy or if sitting down is too tiring. While existing products do not meet contemporary aesthetics, this fun product makes it into modern housing. Nevertheless it makes live easier. It can be used by elderly people or younger.

While the range of topics goes from accessories to indoor and outdoor furniture, all have a common approach to design of the young office based in Switzerland.

They are highly functional pieces created from experience and observation of behaviour, designed with a certain sense for craft as well as technology.
