shockerz turn boring sockets into playful characters


‘shockerz’ is a set of unique laser-cut face icons, designed to give your wall sockets attitude and personality. created by two tel aviv-based industrial designers, nati and tommy, who met in school and, in their third year, were given the assignment to develop something related to home décor that the average person would want enough to buy.

designed to stick to the power outlets in your home, ‘shockerz’ are made out of ABS plastic—the same one wall sockets are made out of. they have a strong stick, but can be easily removed, leaving no marks on the sockets themselves. ‘shockerz’ also do not act so as to prevent the regular use of the wall sockets on which they are placed, on the contrary, the drive attention to them. finally, they are not only easy to apply but also completely safe.

‘shockerz’ is currently seeking funding here.

    Adam White says:
  • does anyone else see a problem with making an electrical socket look like a child play toy?
