The break hub

The Break Hub is a USB charging station for devices. It is based on a brief from IKEA emphasizing on togetherness, playfulness and creativity. The Break Hub is meant for family and friends spending time together where everyone puts their smart device on silence, into the tray and close it. Meanwhile, they focus on doing something together with all of their attention, knowing that their device will be fully charged after their quality time. It is a part of creating an everyday routine to be together during meals, evenings etc. The aesthetics are aimed so that the hub can be a part of the decor in the living area so it’s close by and easier to make the smart devices disappear for a set period of time.
