Firephant – Red Dot Design Award Winner
“With gently flowing lines that are vaguely reminiscent of an elephant, it is colorful, functional, and very much an icon of protection”
A small fire can quickly turn into an inferno, which is why having a fire extinguisher in the house is always important. Unfortunately, fire extinguishers are usually not very attractive and are thus hidden away in corners or cellars. With this in mind, Lars Wettre and Jonas Forsman designed an extinguisher with completely different look-the Firephant is an everyday object that you want to show off. With gently flowing lines that are vaguely reminiscent of an elephant, it is colorful, functional, and very much an icon of protection. The jury of the Red Dot Design Award recognized it for its outstanding new design and for its self-explanatory ease of use in emergencies. Now, it’s exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany.
