In today’s world, where we’re always looking to save time, effort, energy and space, multifunctional pieces are always welcomed. Take for instance the Alternative Alarm Clock from designer Kihyun Kim, which is not only an alarm, but also serves as an extension cord with two outlets! It’s diverse and modern design makes it suitable for any living space or even office. The red and white color offerings only further its desirability; given it can add a splash of color to wherever you’d like to put it.

An alarm and electrical outlets are two essential living items and the fact that they’ve been combined only makes life easier and better! Plus, you can never have enough electrical outlets for all your gadgets and electrical toys, only making this clock more appealing. The alarm is like any other alarm and goes off at the set time, while the sockets can be used for phone chargers or just about anything else you can’t find an outlet for elsewhere.

A few cool ideas as to what to use the extra outlets for can include: bedside fans or even a small coffee maker for those who want to get up, turn of their clock and turn on their brewer!
