Folding Plug wins Brit Insurance design of the year award

Twenty-nine-year old Min-Kyu Choi's three-pin folding plug has won the Brit Insurance design of the year prize.

Min-Kyu Choi’s folding plug will be a good choice for those who have become fed up with bulky three-pin British plug that has changed little since its origin in 1946.

Min-Kyu Choi, the student from Bayswater said that he had carried a laptop with with him to the university but he was sad to see that its plug had scratched the machine.

Speaking on the topic, he further said, “I thought it would be a good idea to create a plug that could be folded flat so the pins would not cause any damage and also to make it as thin as the laptop itself.”

Min-Kyu Choi won a trophy and a title for his impressive design that beat off striking competition across the world.

The folding plug will be displayed at the Design Museum in London until October 31.
