I.D. Magazine Annual Design Review 2009 Bocci’s 22

id2009

Since 1954, the I.D. Annual Design Review has recognized the best in product, furniture, graphic, and environment design, from the iconic to the obscure. For 2009, Bocci’s 22 has been awarded for design distinction in the furniture category (not sure if it is furniture though? – whatever). Here is what the judges had to say:

“This is just beautifully made,” said Breitling of Omer Arbel’s 22 series of interior wall accessories.

Created to be flush-mounted into drywall or millwork without the need for cover plates. Arbel’s design transforms the standard three-pronged power receptacle into a grinning anthropomorphized character if clustered in groups. Alternatively, when scattered sparingly, the seamless socket can evoke a more simple, stripped-down aesthetic.

The three jurors also raved about the 22’s stainless steel removal tool, which extracts the sockets in case the outlet needs rewiring. “This has to be the best accessory ever,” noted Oliver, tool in hand.

Bocci is a contemporary design and manufacturing house located in Vancouver, Canada. I worked as the lead industrial designer on this project under the creative direction of Omer Arbel – he is also a good of friend mine.
