Standing on a shelf, Tower easily blends in among your other objects. Our aim with this design, was to transform the router from annoying necessity to something attractive, from a strictly aesthetic point of view.
Two identical pieces of hard fabric sheets, gently curved and leaning towards each other like a house of cards. With its simple design and fabric surfaces, Tower is highly domesticated.
As a freestanding router, we kept our focus on solving those issues that are normally so annoying with routers. By hiding the connection behind one of the fabric clad sheets, we created perhaps the cleanest cable management yet seen on a router. Slide up the sheet to connect your cables. Slide the sheet back down and then forget about them. Out of sight out of mind.
The reception of Tower has been very positive. On Chinese social media, people praise the very domesticated look and the innovative solutions.
