Designer Harri Koskinen has been racking up the prizes for his Kupu photoelectric smoke detector: a red dot win in 2011 and a Wallpaper* Design Award in 2012. It’s easy to see why. Not only does the Kupu rework the standard plastic carbuncle into a smooth, upholstered, contoured capsule, it’s also a breeze to install and operate. The detector is fixed to surfaces using tape, so you can do away with drills, screws and rawl plugs, plus if you want to test or switch it off, the entire cover is an on/off button. The best thing about it? It can save your life.
