Walking though a new construction home I am working on, as I was discussing construction and design details with the builder and the guy doing the rough carpentry, I recalled a super cool outlet I found at the ICFF, International Contemporary Furniture Fair, a couple of years ago.
We were talking about built in medicine cabinets and how to effectively get electrical to them. The cabinets will have doors that are flush with the wall and painted to match so that they appear to be “invisible”. When doing this in a standard wall, we’re left with an interior depth of roughly 3” and the back of the cabinet may likely be up against the back of the drywall of the adjacent room, so we can’t run the electrical behind the cabinet. Might have to come through the side wall, and these outlets could do the trick.
At the ICFF, Bocci, known best for their lighting, introduced this amazing outlet, called simply, 22. I need to investigate if this application will work, but in the mean time, I thought it was worth throwing on the blog.
