Resumen del concurso

We are looking for a design concept for the aesthetics design for a new double socket weatherproof power outlet.

Typical design in Australian market currently:
https://www.tradezone.com.au/category/weatherproof-powerpoints-384.html
http://www.legrand.com.au/products/switches-and-sockets/aqua-life/
New design requirements:

- Minimalist, modern aesthetics. But not overly ‘futuristic’ or crazily different from what the accepted ‘norm’ in the market is. Just something much nicer and smarter than what’s out there.

- All outer parts made from poly-carbonate. Cream option and matt charcoal option

- There are 2 ways outlets may be installed – either with a ‘back box’ (https://www.voltexelectrical.com.au/p-1442-voltex-weatherproof-double-powerpoint-ip53-10a.aspx) which the cable in 25mm diameter conduit can enter, OR the cable enters the back of the ‘back box’, in this case the back box can be a lot thinner for a slimmer look. Less penetration off the wall. (https://www.voltexelectrical.com.au/p-2298-voltex-weatherproof-double-powerpoint-ip53-10a-slimline.aspx) Need design for both.

- The socket (6 plug pin holes) should be angled downwards, as seen in links above. This is to do with maintaining the weatherproof rating.

- Front section is attached to the back box by two mounting screws. Screws once installed should be covered by plastic caps. Plastic caps should be removable by a small screwdriver once installed (in the images on voltex website you’ll see the round holes near corner of the switches – the ‘caps’ are recessed down these holes. Not easy to remove. As a suggestion, the way Legrand Aqua ones are is better, flush and have a small indent for a screwdriver – see link above)

- Typically the switches are sliding, but could also be rocking or another method.

- Voltex logo should be displayed visually, but discretely

- The outlets should be easy to clean, no sharp internal corners where dirt can gather and not be easy to wipe off

    Dear Contest holder, I am the right person for this job. Wait and see! You will be delighted with my design. I am an industrial designer with experience in plastics and prototyping. My design will not only be purely aesthetic, but can actually make the real casing for the product, so that you injection mould it. Best regards, Will upload today
