Search for “Socket” on Yanko Design and you will be hit by countless designs, making you wonder why is this component so important in our lives. If it’s not the socket per-se, then it’s the plugs that most designers are worried about. Adding to the list is the Live Socket, an iteration that takes away the bother of pulling the plug once we are done with an appliance. Child safe and energy friendly, this design is clever and practical too!
Live Socket is a 2012 iF Design Talents entry.
