From Kickstarter to KBIS, Docking Drawer is an Architizer Finalist
Docking Drawer founder Scott Dickey pulled together the first Docking Drawer prototype before sharing his project on Kickstarter about a year and a half ago. His revolutionary product would help clear homes and offices of clutter by safely eliminating unsightly power cords. Calling upon his experience designing environmental chambers for the semiconductor industry, Dickey created prototypes of the outlets which are currently made and sold to the public. The company’s first charging outlet premiered at KBIS in 2014, and it wasn’t long before the cabinet industry's heavy hitters came calling. Working with them helped Docking Drawer both refine and expand its portfolio.
It took time, but eventually customers began to take notice. Soon, the company’s products weren’t just for adding outlets into kitchen drawers to create charging stations or into bathroom vanities to organize hair dryers while clearing clutter, they had expanded into night clubs, locker rooms, hospitals, and hotels.
“It’s reassuring to look back at what we’ve come from, to glance around and see where we are, and to turn toward the future and what we can become,” said Dickey.
Now, Docking Drawer’s Slim Series charging outlets are one of three finalists in the Architizer A+ Popular Choice Awards, which recognize the best in architectural products.
“We are thrilled to have been selected out of dozens of entries,” said Dickey.
The outlets are nominated for the Kitchen – Fixtures & Fittings category.
Note: Since this article in Woodworking Network was published, it was announced that Docking Drawer is an A+ Award Popular Choice Winner.
