Contemporary storage solution for pocket items, loose change or discreet smart phone charging. The notches on all four corners assist with cord management.
My inspiration for this storage solution came from an unlikely source: ashtrays; especially Mid-century Modern designs. Though ashtrays aren't relevant these days, I saw an opportunity for the notches on the rim to be put to use for another purpose. I then changed the shape of the tray to a more accommodating form factor: a square.
