I love, love, LOVE this design! There are a lot of people who haven’t got smoke detectors in their homes because these devices are so ugly. The Chick-a-Dee is anything but ugly! This smoke detector, designed by Louise van der Veld, is disguised as an adorable bird that starts squeaking when sensing smoke. Louise is the winner of the design competition “Mooi uit de brand” (Dutch for “Rescued in style”), organised by the national association of insurers, that challenged industrial design students to design tools that improve fire safety at home.
Isn’t the bird adorable? And it can save your life too! The Chick-a-Dee will be in shops next year.
