Peg Light


For her final-year project, Brooklyn-based design student Steffi Min has developed a prototype for a light socket that uses the simple clamp mechanism of a clothes peg rather than the traditional screw or bayonet socket.

To operate it, the peg is simply squeezed at the top, and the bulb inserted between the teeth below. When the peg is released, the electricity begins to flow.
