Rozetkus Wall Concept Thinks Nine Holes is Par for a Socket

 |  |  |  |  |  |  January 26, 2012


Trying to fit different-sized plugs into a wall socket can be a pain in the ass. The designers at Art Lebedev studio already came up with a socket that pops out of the wall to reveal extra sockets when needed, but they also have this much simpler solution – a wall socket filled with holes.

The Rozetkus Wall is designed for plugging in low-power devices, the ones that don’t need a third prong for grounding. The abundance of female contacts – the holes – means you can arrange several plugs that may not fit at the same time on conventional wall sockets.

The female contacts are backlit by an LED panel to make the socket easier to spot in the dark.

If you find the design of the Rozetkus Wall familiar, it’s because it’s based on one of the studio’s earlier products, the Rozetkus power strip. If you’re wondering why both Rozetkuses (Rozetki?) have an odd number of female contacts when all plugs have two male contacts, I got no answer for you.

Obviously, this thing wouldn’t work in the U.S., where outlets have straight prongs instead of pins, and building code requires that all wall outlets must offer ground plugs – even if the devices themselves use just 2 prongs.
