Lately, good designs are not just about how something looks (although that is a big part of the equation), it also revolves around the function (or in this case, functions) of a particular product; enter the Magnetic Switch Cover. Although it is quite a traditional and plain light switch cover, it also acts as a part-time key holder since its bottom half is one big magnet.

Designed by industrial student Jake Frey, the Magnetic Switch Cover was part of a project for the home department of Urban Outfitters. Definitely a hipster creation, it is a standard size switch cover plate with a high-power magnet incorporated in the back. The Magnetic Switch Cover allows you to pretty much do two things at once as soon as you walk in the door. Stats for Dual-Purpose Light Switches Trending: Older & Mild
