There are a lot of dangers lurking in the average home that most people aren’t even aware of. For instance, did you know that your common dimmer switch with it’s razor sharp edges and dangerous sliding mechanism has sent more people to the hospital than harmful chemicals and kitchen-related accidents combined? But before you start tearing out all the dimmer switches in your home (be careful! make sure you’re wearing kevlar gloves!) you might be happy to know that the MoMA Store is now selling a much safer alternative to the death traps being sold at your local Home Depot. The Electro Puff Lamp Dimmer is actually an electronic sensor made from colorful recycled carpet fibers and conductive yarns. You can use it to control a lamp’s light level with a simple tap, and not only is it safe to use, but it’s also stain resistant and antimicrobial. So if the safety of your family is of your utmost concern, you can get one of these Electro Puff Dimmers from the MoMA Store for $35.
