Savannah is a city in the United States in Georgia, known for its beautiful landscapes and rich history. It is also famous for its well-preserved architecture. We know it now as the inspiration for the Savannah Anti-theft Kit, which integrates safety and security tools more into our domestic life.
Savannah is a line of smart products that are nothing like the devices you see in the market. They are similar in basic functions, but they are made from ceramic. The result is smooth aesthetics with a very evident minimalist appeal.
Designers: Francesco Isaia, Alessandro Pomponio, and Cecilia Veglio
You won’t think these are anti-theft devices as they look like small toys. But that’s the beauty of these products because they are very subtle you wouldn’t think they have other essential functions.
The landscapes and animals of Savannah inspire the Savannah. Several products are available, like a WiFi router (hub controller), siren/Bluetooth speaker, window sensor, smoke sensor, and a camera. The WiFi router looks like a table home decor. It is designed like a landscape with a couple of trees, and it also works as a hub for all the other Savannah devices. The Bluetooth speaker is shaped like a cube, with the top cover looking like a mountain range. We can also imagine this design being applied as an air purifier.
The window sensors are ready in different shapes. They help detect and report the opening and closing of doors. There is also a smoke sensor that looks like an upside-down character. The camera looks cute in different animal designs and colors.
The Savannah Anti-Theft System is a design by Francesco Isaia, Alessandro Pomponio, and Cecilia Veglio. These Italian designers prove that Italian design is really something more. It goes beyond the aesthetic appeal as it is also about quality, craftsmanship, tradition, innovation, and passion. The Savannah 2021 Collection is likely to have additional products in the future. But first, this project needs to get into production. The devices remain as a concept product design for now but we know the idea can be easily picked up by other designers.
We have featured other anti-theft devices before but nothing cute like the Savannah. The ones we’ve seen were specifically for cyclists. There was the Anti-Theft Collapsible Bike Wheel and those discrete metal tags by Cycling Boom. Special anti-theft bags have been introduced as well—the Bobby Anti-Theft Backpack and the Tribal Anti-theft Sports Bag.
