Origami inspired Inora light switches and wiring range set new standards for timeless design in the Middle East

  • ABB shines the spotlight on its new simple and stylish light switches and wiring accessories range for the Middle East markets
  •  Inspired by Japanese Origami, the new range offers a highly versatile design palette

Designed with quality, functionality and simplicity in mind, Inora creates a timeless aesthetic to complement the interior style of any residential or commercial building here in the region.

Its clean lines, gently curved rockers and stylish top and bottom chamfer frames were all inspired by the Japanese ancient paper folding art of Origami. The upper and lower turning surfaces of the frames form a symmetrical, minimalist and balanced aesthetic making its unobtrusive design a truly versatile accessory for any building interior.

The Inora light switches and wiring range are making a debut at the right time, as the Middle East lighting fixtures market is set for post-covid rebound, growing five percent annually from 2021-2027, according to a new research report by analysts at 6Wresearch[1].

Samuel Merkli, ABB’s Head of the Global Product Line Wiring Accessories said: “Inora’s timeless ergonomic design uses straight lines for visual segmentation. It combines functionality with high quality materials and safety features and is incredibly quick and safe to install. The new range is the ideal choice for installers as well as interior designers, as the design industry here in the Middle East continues to deploy innovative solutions.”

The Inora range can meet the functional needs of any building with integrated USB charging points in the socket outlets, light switches with up to four rockers, dimmers, switches, cooker control units and optional blue illumination to emphasize the sockets’ location at night to mention a few.  Installers can configure up to four rockers in one frame, together with the other functions, such as USB charging points, saving space and optimizing installation time thanks to the large available wiring space and easily accessible cable terminals.  Fewer wiring accessories needed throughout the building, also contribute to a clean interior design.

Available in four colors – white, classic grey, starry black and royal gold – the Inora is made from high quality polycarbonate materials, for both surface and installation parts, and also features red copper and silver alloy materials, which guarantees durability and performance for many years.  

Inora has been certified according to British Standard installation requirements and provides strong durability due to its high-quality materials. In addition, the socket outlets have been designed with safety shutters to protect children from power hazards. Also, the switch features subtle blue illumination for simple location at night.

The new range offers building owners, designers and installers design choices which are outstanding for their great versatility.
