Right Direction

Exit Guide is an evacuation system linked to the building’s fire alarm system. When the alarms go off, the green and red lights on the evacuation door light up, indicating which direction (or floor) you need to move to. For example, if the lower part of the escape door is red and the upper part is green, it simply means you need to go to the floors above you and there is danger below. The aim is to reduce panic and avoid confusion, so the speed of evacuation can be maximized.

Exit Guide is a 2013 red dot award: design concept winner.
