We hate messy cords, and yet we have so many of them! But this beautiful, simple solution from Naoto Yoshida might be just what we need. The WrapWrap is a wire management tool made out of salvaged wood scraps from furniture manufacturers, and it works best with small cables from your ipod, iphone or phone chargers. This is one cord solution we wouldn't mind having out in the open.
