Jalo at Maison&Objet


Discovered earlier this week at the Paris trade fair Maison & Objet were these alternative smoke alarms by Helsinki-based company Jalo.

Designed by Finnish designers Harri Koskinen and Paola Suhonen, the unconventional shapes and moth designs are pleasing updates on the banal smoke alarm, incorporating fabrics and colours that complement the home interior.

The alarms have no tiny push buttons, but the whole external casing acts as a press switch for silencing false alarms and testing the performance of the product.
