From Fabrica, a link to Die Electric, a delightful exhibition of alternatives devices for plugging into electric sockets, including OFF, The Light Switch Hook:
OFF, the light switch hook, provides a hanging function when in the OFF position. It is a fully functional light switch. It was designed to persuade people to use less energy.
I realise that it’s supposed to save energy, but isn’t it the wrong way around? Aren’t you more likely to want to use it as a hanger when you’re in the room — and when you’re in the room aren’t you more likely to want to have the lights on? I’m confused :-)
I think the idea is to not use the lights at all.
