I wanted to develop a line of products that would make high capacity charging a lot more convenient and much more available around both the home and office.
Arcadio was a brand that was developed to deliver these products. The line of products, known as Plynth, integrates high capacity charging into items around the home. The first two products were a lamp and headphone stand.
These products come in a simple, sleek, minimalist design that effortlessly fit into any home or office environment.
I wanted to make something simple and elegant that would fit many different rooms and decors. I developed and designed these products as far as prototyping, with all materials, parts and manufacturing sourced in Shenzhen, China. The line was built on the premise that wireless charging would be widely utilised unfortunately I was working on it the same year that samsung batteries began burning up and the iPhone had not adopted the wireless charging standard. The venture was proving too costly to bring forward even with the help I received from winning the Offaly category of Ireland best you Entrepreneur and getting on the Enterprise Ireland Programme New Frontiers.
