Wall plates must integrate with their environment, reflecting statements of the user. A wall plate is a common touch point. It is a hole cover in the most literal sense; but in reality, it is an overt expression at the point of entry and exit. It’s the first thing a user will experience when entering a space, and the last object to be known upon exit. Objects have a powerful influence on our experience, and wall-plates serve as an influential control point in our daily routines.
