BUZZ ME IN
Intercom outlet (interior end)
Commissioned by: private client. Rotterdam
Recycling, upcycling and reusing material or components has long been one of the things that brings sparkles into my eyes. Where most people see dirt I see a new chance to dig in.
BUZZ-ME-IN is one of those things that started as an old school, telephone-like outlet and ended up into a new apartment buzzer. Playing on the idea of dematerialized aesthetics, the intention was to leave the decades-old components completely in sight and integrate everything into one board. BUZZ-ME-IN connects the street doorbell to the home by allowing you to interact with the headset, speaker and unlock command through two buttons: listen/speak by keeping one button pressed; unlock by touching the other button once.
