One of the tiny details that makes a huge difference in a room? Flush-mount electrical accessories. Typical power outlets and light switches are clunky and unsightly, drawing the eye for all the wrong reasons, but subtle flush-mount versions blend seamlessly with the surface they sit on—and can even add a design-forward, architectural element. (See Remodeling 101: The Surprising Appeal of Flush Electrical Outlets for evidence.)
We’re longtime admirers of The 22 System, a suite of minimal electrical wall accessories designed to integrate with architectural finishes of all sorts, from Vancouver- and Berlin-based company Bocci. The drywall components, called 22 Drywall, allow a power outlet, switch, USB, or other accessories to pop into a receiving system mudded directly into drywall, while the 22 Alternative versions allow the same components to connect to a receiving system set behind a variety of finish materials—think marble, millwork, tile, glass, and more—to seamless effect.
The result? Fully operative, reliable components that sit flush in just about any wall surface—no clunky cover plates needed. Take a look at the outlets in situ in a variety of kitchen styles.
