- Floor Plan Switch –
When we talk of lights, you all would agree with me on one thing that we have come a long way. From natural light, candles to the colorful LED lights controlled by mobiles, lighting technology has come a long way. Everyone faces the gaggle of light switches placed in a long row in a new house or office without any labelling. And it takes ages to remember the order of lighting arrangement!
One of the product designers at Yanko Design and the internationally recognized design firm, Taewon Hwang came up with a brilliant idea about placing modern switches. The idea is to put all the switches into one plate with replication of the floor plan superimposed on it. This reduces the guesswork makes it much easier to remember which switch is meant for which light.

- Door Handle with Self-Sterilization System –

One of the breeding grounds for germs, most of us don’t pay attention to cleaning of the Door Knobs and Handles. Self-Sterilizing Door Handles takes care of it! It was the winning entry of the Red Dot Design Concept.
This special Door handle uses UV light for sterilizing the handle bar. The working of the handle is very simple. In idle condition, the UV light continuously sterilizes the handle. When anyone pushes the handle to open the door, the UV light goes off for that moment and turns on when the handle is back to the idle position.
