turn me off / Wall switch

turn me off

People’s behaviors are unconsciously influenced by the product functions with the improvement of our living quality. O-Surface is adopted the embedded shape of skew curved surface of O, taken advantage of concave between the wall and itself and driven by people’s gestures touching the wall switch to turn on the power. But what the difference from the existed wall switch is the indicator light of O-Surface will turn the blue into the red after powered. Through conspicuous red light to remind people to turn off the power and save energy is exactly what our design purpose.
