Hungarian design brand Sekhina has made a series of light switches and plug sockets from concrete as an aesthetically pleasing alternative to plastic.

Billed as the first of their kind, Sekhina founder Gábor Kasza made the concrete covers for switches and sockets after not being able to find any similar products made from the material.”Concrete switches and sockets had to exist already – or so we thought initially; it seemed such an obvious idea, but we couldn’t find them anywhere,” said Kasza.

“We thought they would look and feel fantastic, so we created them,” he added. “You can now find the very first completely concrete cover of switches and sockets, made from only silicates – more sustainable and more beautiful.
