The French fairy tale Le Maistre Chat, ou Le Chat Botté, commonly known as “Master Cat” or “Puss in Boots”, inspired the designers when confronted with a problem known to most homes.

The average woman owns around 19 pairs of shoes, to maximise the lifetime span of the shoes it is important that they are well kept.

The Master holder keeps the boots from wrinkling around the ankle, falling over and messing up the hallway. The Master clip is used in ankle boots and court shoes to maintain their shape and lure.

The shoe and boot holders, are very light and can be flat packed for easy storage while they are not in use.

The Master range create added value to the owners footwear and creates playful and clean aesthetically pleasing elements to your home.

Epikk is a module shelving unit is designed to work for all homes.

The unit floats on the wall and the wall posts come in different lengths as well as that the wall post are able to conceal electrical cables in specially designed slots on the edges of the wall posts.

This allows electronic devices found in most modern households today to be stored away whilst been esthetically clean and cable free. This is also incorporated in the desk designed for the unit which has a compartment that can store away an extension as well as multiple cables with no visibility to the eye.

The design gives the consumer complete control and allows the customer to play with size, colors, price and layout.

The visual language for the shelf was originated from the Danish design The Royal System designed by Poul Cadovius.

Butler 500 cordless DECT phone and the Butler 920 Skype phone


Goodmorning, a Danish strategic design firm recently developed stylish phones for a Belgium tele-company called TopCom.

Here shown the Butler 500 cordless DECT phone and the Butler 920 Skype phone.

The Butler 500 is a much simplified DECT phone for Topcom. Designed to be simple in expression and simple in use, the Butler 500 can be placed in its charger vertically or horizontally. The back of the phone houses a back-lit screen – to offer the information that matters. The keys use a touch-sensitive membrane but are graphically divided with fine lines “engraved” in the surface. In a world of over-styled and over-cluttered DECT phones, block offers a refreshingly simple phone which still has a strong presence.

The Butler 920 phone for Topcom is pure ”ear candy”. Designed as a high volume and relatively cheap Skype (VOIP) phone, the Butler 920 should be available in a range of bright, candy colours. The top half of the phone houses the screen within a case of clear plastic. The Butler 920 offers a fun and simple companion to your computer.

The Butler 500+ or “Partner phone” for Topcom is so-called because, unlike conventional DECT phones, it forms a strong partnership with its charging base. When sitting on its base, the partner phone creates an attractive whole, with an embedded screen which shows you just the information you need. A small scoop in the handset both helps to locate the navigation keys and makes it easier to pick the phone from its base. The base holds the handset in place with a magnet so that the partner phone can be placed horizontally or mounted on a wall.

(Goodmorning Technology is a strategic design firm, placed in Copenhagen Denmark. With 15 people working within the fields of product, graphic, digitaldesign, architecture, strategy, business, communication and ethnology they develop and design innovative solutions in a complex world)
