Indie designer Scott Amron is currently putting a visual twist on household energy consumption with the launch of his Die Electric product line. As a freelance electrical engineer, conceptual artist, inventor, and the founding principal of Amron Experimental, Amron’s work aims to visually demonstrate how reliant we have become on the ubiquitous wall outlet and its seemingly endless supply of energy.
Die Electric’s PLUGGED: cork outlet plug, is a possible solution in its zero-consumption or ‘design to encourage better energy use’ principles. PLUGGED serves as ready-made insulating material and sculptural gadget to prevent outlet electricity leaks. Like Amron’s other plug-based wall pieces (SHELF, GROW PLUG, SINGLE VASE AC, etc.), PLUGGED is both conceptually and practically a groundbreaker.
