Mr. Grato / Light Switch

Mr. Grato
Mr. Grato

Mr. Grato is a light switch that tries to improve users’ awareness towards energy consumption. It doesn’t use any complicated sensors or mechanisms, rather it’s a simple switch with an engaging form. When the light is on Mr. Grato the switch itself is in a concerned position reminding users that are leaving the room that something is wrong, that energy is wasted. When users push the key down they’ll see Mr. Grato is actually bowing to the as a gesture of gratitude for caring about energy!
