Plug Lamp Puts an Outlet Right Where You Need It

We are people of the gadget, and thus, we are people of the power socket as well. Laptops, phones, cameras, and noise-canceling headphones all need to be charged sooner or later. Why don't all our furnishings have built-in sockets like this ingenious lamp.

Plug Lamp Puts an Outlet Right Where You Need It

Plug Lamp from Swedish company Ateje Lyktan is the lighting you always hope for on your desk, your workbench, or at the coffee shop. It's an elegant solution in a beautiful package; rather than bending over and flailing for an elusive power strip when you need a charge, your source of gadget juice is right in front of you. If only we could convince them to outfit the lamp with a US socket. [Ateje Lyktan via DesignBoom]
