The development of complex and multifunctional products presents designers with various challenges. Light can help to find good solutions. Remarkable here is the combination of rather practical utility aspects with the aspect of emotion and the special aesthetics that light lends to a product.
Inspiring examples of this are the new illuminated switches and sockets from Berker. Cold or warm white light surrounds the operating knob in the rotary switch or the outer contour of the toggle switch and socket outlet. Functional aspects such as good orientation or status information are combined here with the special aesthetics in the form of an aura around the switch and socket outlet.
