When it comes to creating original, yet functional objects, that help simplify life in a stylish manner, Curtis Micklish is on point when it comes to developing new ideas. According to Curtis, a furniture and product designer in San Diego, CA, his "work includes both designing and building a collection as well as working with clients on furniture, lighting, and architectural installations and interior design."
How often do we find ourselves getting ready to head out the door, usually in a rush, to find ourselves checking to see if we have everything we need? We tap our pockets (look in our purses) to check for keys, wallet, phone, etc. only to find that one is missing. Curtis has managed to put together a tool that will help the rest of us cut down on time wasted, as we run from room to room, wondering where we last put the missing item. His new invention, The Butler (a project found on Kickstarter), is a stylish, yet simple station that allows you to leave your keys, wallet, glasses, and phone all in one location and not have to worry about where you left them the next morning. The Butler is also a charging doc for all iPhone models, Samsung's S3 and S4, and the HTC One, which gives you the opportunity to charge your phone over night, and have it ready to go the next morning. It is a great home organizer that will help you leave home and not have to worry about whether or not you have all the needed essentials for the day.
The Butler is a unique idea that gives you a piece of mind, giving the consumer the opportunity to cut down on stress, especially in today's fast paced society. One feature that would add more value to the product would be a speaker system within The Butler. With the concept of plugging in your phone, the speaker would create the opportunity for the consumer to also enjoy the music on their phone, at home or office.
Overall, this idea POPs.
