Have you seen this? It's an electrical outlet, designed just for us minimalists!
It's called the 22, and designed by Omer Arbel for Bocci. It does away with those horrible plastic cover plates by drywalling over most of the outlet, leaving only the essential bits exposed.
On top of that, Arbel's designs tempt you to be playful with the placement of the sockets. So come on guys, time to get your DYI on!
