The Chick-a-Dee Smoke Detector.
ZZZzzzzzzz…You get my drift, right? Not that you really see the smoke alarm up there in the ceiling. But you still sort of do. There is this…blorb in the middle of the ceiling quite annoying for a design freaks eye. Or maybe to a normal person too?
Dutch designer Louise van der Veld is the smart brain behind this and in 2007 she won first prize in the competition Moi uit de Brand. The smoke detector is now available in stores across The Netherlands and in various web shops. Just google it and you will find a store just for you. Or try this one
But seriously people, this cute bird come smoke detector will make you happy every time you happen to look at the ceiling. It is there, no matter what, why not make it memorable?
