Inga Sempé’s collection of switches, sockets and dimmers for Legrand show that even the lowly electrical outlet can be a design object.

Legrand, a multinational geated towards wiring devices, asked Sempé – better known for her Ruché sofa for Ligne Roset and her feminine lighting for Wästberg – to come up with a new collection as part of its designer collection.

Debuted in late 2012, the collection includes a wall plate with a waffled texture; you press in the circles to reveal the outlets. It also features ultra-minimal light switches and outlets with covers that fold up like little umbrellas to provide access for plugs.

The redesigned outlet is enjoying a lot of play, and with such designers as Inga Sempé and Omer Arbel creating smart-looking sockets, there’s no reason to have a hideous wall plate in your home.
