6 Great Holiday Gifts for Her and Him

Holiday season 2016 is underway so we thought we’d share our favorite picks for the special someone(s) in your life.  Because a gift is an expression of your personal style,  look for items that reflect your personality and taste, but suit the recipient.  Gift giving should never send you to the poorhouse or break the bank.  Send a heartfelt note or a baked good before gifting beyond your means.  That said, here’s what we love!  All items are currently available for purchase at Switch and will ship in time for Christmas and Hanukkah if order by December 10. Many more options to help you celebrate the season available in store.  Visit our new location in downtown Cincinnati at 312 W. 4th.  Hours: 10-6, M-S.  Appointments welcome: 513.421.1901.

2015 DAAP Industrial Design Student Showcase

Today Switch is pleased to be hosting the 2015 DAAP Industrial Design Students from University of Cincinnati. For the past few years, Switch has been taking part in the student’s final project by way of offering our lighting knowledge and expertise. The project is for the students to create their own unique lighting fixture. Here’s a few from the past year we loved:

Switch’s Lighting of the Globe

The Globe Building that now houses People’s Liberty has been open for a week or two at this point. Switch is proud to have provided the lighting for this wonderful space. Today we want to highlight some of the main features we provided!

This space in the kitchen is meant for ‘family dinners’. It features a cluster of Graypants Scraplights. Scraplights are made up of recycled card board, and are created ins Seattle. They add a nice texture to this lovely space!

We have a few Scotch Club fixtures by Marset through out the space in various sitting or meeting areas. Marset is located in Barcelona, Spain, and Scotch Club is made out of ceramics.

globe4
Pleat Box, Scotch Club’s brother, is hanging in a cluster of various colors and sizes over the conference table. The repeating ceramic fixtures through out the space help to keep the whole building integrated.

If you haven’t stopped by to see the restored Globe Building yet, you really should!
