Elephant in the Room Brings Playfulness to Dull Interior Features

Besides colorful switch plates and stickers, there is a way to liven up electrical outlets with the delightful Elephant in the Room. This little plastic item can be easily pinned to a standard socket with the insertion of an appliance's cable. The reason that Gal Bulka and Idan Noyberg made an elephant form becomes obvious once the two are stuck together.

The flat gray figure of the mammal features a small rounded body with four legs, a curling tail and an exaggerated head. It has big broad ears and no face, because this is where a plug is applied. With the cord escaping from the Elephant in the Room, it comes to resemble a trunk with quite a lengthy extension. The knickknack brings a bit of fun to boring interior elements, better suited to the quarters of young-at-heart adults, rather than curious kids.
