Afternoons with Albert is a lifestyle-wares design business based in Sydney, Australia, run by Founder and Head Designer Shane Thompson. He named his company after his carpenter and tinkerer grandfather Albert, who instilled a love for form, function and beauty in the younger Shane during many afternoons spent creating and building in a shed in Western Australia.
A commercial airline pilot for QANTAS, a mad skier, surfer and always on the go, Shane’s personal frustration with forever-tangled earphones and wandering charger cables led the avid music fan to design a solution to a problem we are all fighting with everyday. Whether on the bus to work, out running, or backpacking the globe – those pesky cords seem to have a life of their own: the moment you look away they always tangle themselves into knots. Until now.
“Lose yourself in music, scenery and the joy of travel, not in the endless darkness of your luggage looking for a chaotic knot of cords and wires. Whether you’re navigating the concrete pathways of the urban landscape or getting lost off the beaten track we’ve got your back.
Tuck away earphones, cables, chargers and easily lost treasures in The Cord Roll, it will make sure they are always on hand and ready for any adventure.
Just remember; keep your friends close, but your Cord Roll Closer”
