The wall socket is often a hidden element of the home, as it is widely deemed as unattractive. Douwes Socket turns this notion on its head, transforming something seemingly displeasing to look at into something beautiful. Sustainably-produced in porcelain and now available in a light grey hue that also matches the color of the electrical wire, the hanging socket is made by hand in the Netherlands, providing electricity above a freestanding kitchen-table.
As sockets are often placed in unfavourable places, Lamp and Socket encourages a more flexible way of life for a variety of settings such as private and public spaces, allowing its users – without major interventions - greater freedom of how a room will be used, enhancing the experience for all.
