    those are wonderful… though, they don’t look as though it would be terribly difficult to make your own.

    He needs to combine this idea with the (sadly not-winning) design submission for high-voltage pylons shaped like giant humans:

    I can’t wait for the small trencher that will gouge a 2″ deep trench across your desk/floor, whatever, so we can bury those unsightly wires!

    I find them like I find the real thing: ugly. All they need now is a little forest clear cut on the side of a mountain.

  5. They’d have to be clamped to the desk, but they look cool!

    If ever there was a post that needed the hashtag “#firstworldproblems”, it would probably be, “Miniature power-line towers to hold up your gadget cables”.

    I do find when on a road trip some of the giant towers stretching out along the plains quite meditative and surreal though.

    I wonder if that phallus on the right was intentional….

    If those aren’t Sennheiser HDs, then I’m a monkey’s uncle. The dude’s got taste, that’s for sure.

    Great idea except don’t we all aim to hide those cables?

  10. I like the full-size versions, stretched out over an expanse of land. On a desk, it seems to clutter everything up though. I think there’s a reason that there are infinitely more discreet wire-consolidating options for desks.

    I love these things! 

    I’ve been obsessed with power line towers as long as I can remember. There’s something both ominous and dramatic about them.

    Just in time for everything to go wireless.  Unfortunately powerlines are one of the things that North Americans have used to make our landscapes ugly.  Imagine walking down the street and not seeing cords hanging everywhere…

    These would look great on top of the piles of paper, empty DVD cases, jars of pens and screws on my desk.
