IFM Plush Touch Lightswitch Gets UL Approval

Why reach for "a traditional cold, plastic dimmer switch, imagine adjusting your lights with just a touch of soft, inviting fabric. A simple tap of the tufted textile sensor turns on, off or dims the lights. Our fabric dimmers transform a purely mechanical task into an intriguing sensual experience and add a beautiful touch of contemporary design to an otherwise plain wall."

It's from International Fashion Machines, where artist and technologist Maggie Orth believes that "Functional doesn’t have to be impersonal. And lighting your room doesn’t have to be mundane." Now it is Underwriters Laboratories approved, (an expensive and time-consuming process) so we can legally rethink the way we work with electricity. ::International Fashion Machines via ::MocoLoco
