[dimmer switch rotation] A dimmer switch to be used in conjunction with the wall sconce. Based on the architectural symbol for a single-pole electrical switch.

The backing plate (Original RP part cast in bronze. Other parts are SLS nylon.) is secured to an installed wall box in standard fashion. The central "S", fitted to the stem of a commercial rotating dimmer switch, protrudes through a top plate with the spun "S" relief.

The switch is operated normally. The main "S" is on a plate that floats between the backing plate (attached to the wall) and the front plate (which rotates with the middle plate when adjusting the dimmer).

The backing plate is 18cm in diameter. The main "S" protrudes 2.35cm from the wall.
