Silicon Switches

industrial design

Who thought that something as dull as a light switch could be re-vamped in such a beautiful way? Well, Japanese studio Normal Design have done it and these Silicon Switches are the result:

The common wall switch has barely evolved at all in decades, leaving interior designers with something to work around, rather than work with. Now there is an alternative.

A silicon layer covers a pre-fabricated switch and by pushing the raised area, you activate the switch. It was designed by Ross McBride, an American designer who lives in Japan where he  focuses on product and furniture design since 1997.

I love the fact how he took an everyday item and took it to another level!
