A valet stand for the 21st century: a tray to put loose stuff like your phone, your wallet, keys etc. a hook underneath to hang your backpack, handbag or jacket. And a spear with a ball on top that works either as socket for charging your phone, or to throw over your jacket. Trustworthy appearance like a knight, protecting while taking care of your stuff. in german, valet stand means stummer diener, silent servant. So with this knight-like appearance, I was thinking of a silent knight: a character-like object, being there and protecting your stuff, but in a silent, mute way.
