The Elo light switches from French company Realitem are a far cry from your ordinary electrical plate. A smooth, rounded design makes these fixtures resemble water-worn river stones more than an outlet or a wall switch. At the same time, a metallic toggle switch gives the piece an endearing retro-futuristic flair.

Elo are available in a variety of finishes, including ceramic, stone, aluminum and wood grain. The aluminum finish is available in metal, black and red colors, while the ceramic finish is available in glossy or satin white. The plates come in push-button, two-way switch or socket styles.

“We are hoping to create new projects linking designers and artisans in search for authenticity and simplicity,” said the designers on their website. “In order to achieve this, our policy is developed around concepts of innovation, tradition and ethics.”

With its variety of finishes and retro charm, these fixtures bring traditional elements together in an innovative and modern way. Far from an ordinary light switch, these pieces are sure to add a unique touch to a design project.
