As you well know, the gang at Blue Lounge will not stop until every man, woman, and child clears up that spider's web of cables that lay under, behind, or next to their desk. In order to further this mad mission the company's introduced something called the Cable Box Mini. It's a cable box, and presumably it's smaller than some other cable box. To be quite honest, we prefer this idea to more complex cable management systems: rather than run your cables through trays, or organize them with velcro wraps, you still make the same mess -- except this time the mess ends up in a box.

BLUELOUNGE LAUNCHES CABLEBOX MINI

New Compact Size and Vibrant Colors Provides Hidden Cable Use, Storage and Personal Expression Around the Workspace

PASADENA, CA - July7, 2010 - Bluelounge, the award-winning international design studio known for sleek, minimalist design home and office organization products including CableBox, StudioDesk, and The Sanctuary, today announced a new product SKU to its growing portfolio of functional home and office design products, the CableBox Mini, a predecessor to the popular CableBox. The CableBox Mini has a smaller form factor and comes in vibrant colors - ideal for the office and home electronics users with limited space around their workspace or for users who want to display the CableBox Mini as a personal expression on their desk.

CableBox Mini includes a short power strip/power surge protector for convenience. AC Adapters and surplus cable lengths are hidden away seamlessly within CableBox Mini's sleek, sturdy container. In addition to cable storage, CableBox Mini can be used to protect routers, hubs and other devices in its fire retardant plastic casing.

"We created the CableBox Mini for our customers who required the utility of the original CableBox product in a smaller form factor for the spaces they work and live in," says Bluelounge Principal and Designer, Dominic Symons. "The CableBox Mini provides a smart solution for those with limited space and multiple, grouped together devices that require a single power source. And its compact design allows for attractive, out-in-the-open placement and fits nearly anywhere -- on your desk, next to the computer, in the kitchen, bedroom or even hidden behind the desk. This creates a simple, versatile solution to hide cable clusters."

CableBox Mini is a simple solution, ideal for small spaces with big problems. It is available in a variety of colors including blue, green, orange, pink, yellow and white. The bright colors and compact size allow the CableBox Mini to be used on the desktop too. It organizes clutter into a single dust free container. CableBox Mini is 9" x 4" x 5" and retails for $29.95. Made from material that is fire retardant (UL 94).
