Fire extinguishers: you can’t live with ’em, you can’t live without ’em. What I mean is, nothing will kill the aesthetic vibe of a space quicker than a bright red extinguisher. Of course, that space won’t exist if it’s overtaken by fire… so what to do? This concept by Alessandro Zaghi is designed to look better and operate more intuitively than your average red can.
Mounted on any wall or surface, the minimalistic unit’s surface is a giant push-to-release button. It’s also attached to the base magnetically, making it easy to remove. The design differs from traditional units in that it can be worn like a satchel or bag, freeing the hands to carry other objects and operate the spray nozzle. Once removed, instructions are revealed in a detailed yet simple graphic. Simply throw it over the shoulder and press the button to spray.
