The majority of fire extinguishers have a fairly utilitarian look about them, and that makes complete sense. However, the Firephant has been designed with some extra formal flare in such a way that does not detract from its efficacy; it simply serves to make it more attractive.

Jonas Forsman reinforces the point that such contraptions should be kept in highly visible and accessible places, but many aesthetics-conscious homeowners like to hide the often unsightly things. This designer has therefore made a sculpture out of the fire retardant device and proposed its manufacturing in one of three desirable colors. The Firephant fire extinguisher comes in bold red, bright white and a modern gunmetal gray; it features two separate halves that blend smoothly together into a highly ergonomic handle that looks like an elephant's trunk.
