According to Berker, one of the first rotary switched conceived in their workshop back in 1919, was “already simple, aesthetic and functional”. And now after 92 years, designer Alexander Knorr has contrived his version of the Berker 1919, to rekindle that retro ambiance, albeit with some modernistic attributes.
This ‘redesigned’ version is touted to be a multimedia switch with a plethora of lighting as well as display elements. The main central form includes a dip switch for the obvious controlling of light, while rotating the circular form around it can change the modes of the fixture into various atmospheric and lighting regulatory features. This includes controlling the heat, dimming the light and even showing the time. The whole set-up is additionally touch sensitive, and incorporates a LED system to interact with the user.
