Product design and development, product packaging, and proposed logo redesign for Los Angeles-based architectural hardware manufacturer Mockett & Co.
Sombrero is a patented cable management solution. Designed to be mounted to the underside of any tabletop, this sombrero-shaped spool reins in unruly cable by winding it around its core and firmly anchoring the exiting cable into any of the three V-shaped notches: This prevents the cables from accidentally dislodging or unwinding.
Sombrero is injection molded in a semi-flexible elastomer and accommodates most cables, ranging from smaller data cables to larger power cords. Sombrero is easily installed using only a screwdriver and can also be mounted vertically onto a wall or the back of a cabinet. The packaging utilizes a minimum of paperboard and wraps around the product, capturing the mounting screw inside the Sombrero.
