When emergency strikes, the 'Compass' alert system will help you find your way to safety. Designed by Mathieu Azema, the 'Compass' is an illuminated guide for public buildings that should be placed regularly throughout structures so as to point people in the direction of the nearest exit.

Functioning separately from the building's main electrical network, the 'Compass' alert system illuminates in times of crisis using easy-to-read arrows and an audio play track that dictates escape instructions and the nature of the emergency.
