cave switch / switch

cave switch

Darkness can trigger inner fear of people, especially a long dark cave. Through applying the metaphor of dark cave into switch design, we take advantage people's fear to prevent them from touching the switch casually. Our design aims to cultivate people's awareness of saving electric power. Moreover, the embedded switch can not be easily touched, so the behavior of opening or closing power by mistakes can be avoided.
