‘shelf’ a cut power cord fashioned to form a rigid shelf provides a
surface on which to rest objects (cell-phones, a glass of water, etc…)
new york designer scott amron created a series of prototypes that use electrical sockets without conducting
electricity. the series was based on the term dielectric meaning, a insulating material that does not conduct
electricity. each design experiment realizes this term in an unconventional way using plugs and sockets as
their base. among the designs is ‘plugged’ a plug-in cork to ‘plug potential leaks’, ‘shelf’ a power cord
fashioned into a rigid shelf and ‘candull’ a candle designed to turn a lamp into a candle holder.
scott amron will also be participating in designboom’s kitchen ecology exhibition this month.
