This quirky smoke alarm from Finnish designer Paola Suhonen adds a bit of fun to home safety devices.

By coming up with a creative re-design for this everyday object, the designer has provided home owners with a sense of humor an alternative.

When was the last time you got excited about a smoke alarm? Probably never. This fun, easy-to-install design means young people are more likely to buy this product and protect their homes against the danger of fire. The 'Lento' design was created by Paola Suhonen for the Jalo Helsinki brand.
