Roo Nuc Mag

From £75.00

Katy Paty, a small team of light switch makers in Bohemia, have perfected a special process of dyeing porcelain in amazing colours. The Roo Lignum range features a real wood surround and a white porcelain centre plate. This is the “American Walnut” finish with its characteristic swirly and dotted grain.

IMPORTANT

Because of its round backplate shape, this switch doesn't fit the regular British square or rectangular wall boxes. The corners of the back box (or the hole the switch is going into) WILL SHOW.

It is perfectly possible to fit a European-style round back box, which the backplate will cover. We sell these boxes here. But this will require electrical work and decorating/plastering to make good the new wall box.

Please be aware that we don't accept returns of this product after 14 days if you find that the necessary installation/decorating work is too extensive. We kindly ask that you and your electrician make sure that they are aware of the back box incompatibility before ordering this product.

What you need to know

What does an electrician call this?

This is a 1-gang 2-way 10AX switch, or 2-gang 2-way 10AX switch, or a 1-gang intermediate 10AX switch


Where is this used in the home?

A 1-gang 2-way switch is commonly used for controlling a single light source from one or two places. A 1-gang intermediate is used as the middle switch of three, controlling a single light source (for example in a hallway). A 2-gang switch is used for controlling two light sources from one or two places.


 

Installation

Katy Paty switches require a bit more patience to wire up, simply because they are modelled on original designs and don't have the modern conveniences of push-contacts and encapsulated backplates.

Just follow the step-by-step pictures below or go to our Katy Paty switch installation page. Don't forget you need a European round box for this product!

The concept

This switch is a precious design piece, a detail which can personalise any room. It is equally at home in contemporary and period surroundings, although, through the soft pastel options, its raison d’être is vintage styling – think cornish blue tableware and painted wood furniture.

Bring out the bunting! The seaside pastels variety comes across all lollipops and gingham tablecloths, evoking little girls in cotton dresses and fairy cakes for tea. A wall accessory that just makes you smile, with the added assurance of outstanding craftsmanship and a near-indestructible material.

 

When we marry old and new, memories and nostalgia, the details matter

The range

The key to the whole Katy Paty range is personalisation. Endless styling possibilities are provided by the huge range of colours, which makes it possible to mix and match moods and rooms. Pale champagne to soothe the senses in a bedroom, a bright candy-pink to accent the white walls of a bathroom, and softest turquoise for the baby’s room.

There are some fundamental style differences between the natural pastels – the soft stones, earths, and mosses – and the more retro, seaside feel of the rose, lemon and mint shades. Explore and indulge.

The detail

The form of this switch is circles within circles, undulating rounds of carefully sculptured porcelain create spiralled surfaces for light to dance on – these switches sparkle. The steel screws on the face of the switch are perfectly placed to create symmetry and framing for the rocker, which adds to the classic feel. The porcelain is glossy (although a matt range is coming soon), homely and tactile, and the switch mechanism delivers a satisfying ‘chink’ as you press the rocker to illuminate your room.

Katy Paty’s switches are hand-made artisan products, so you might find slight imperfections and colour variations. But that just adds to the quirky luxury of having these pieces on your walls.
