kiev-based goloob bureau creates ‘oii’, a piece which shifts the idea of a power socket as a strictly functional thing. up to now, the socket was just a functional element of the interior. created be noticeable, the new porcelain collection recalls the ukrainian tradition of decorating living rooms with plaques.

 

 

in traditional homes in ukraine, there were plate rails on the walls. it is a remarkable element of coziness which you can see mostly in little country hotels — oii socket combines that tradition and utility. goloob bureau has produced one minimalistic collection and one in traditional ukrainian patterns made of porcelain.
