Fire protection engineering and design: Two terms that at first glance have little in common. A fire extinguisher is in fact the epitome of a functional product that as a rule is hidden in the hindmost corner and even offends the eye of the beholder with its flaming red colour. Designer Christian Dorn and fire protection expert Holger Züfle explore a different way: At the beginning of June, the two Germans from the Black Forest are launching two fire extinguisher cabinets characterized by unadorned beauty of form and aesthetics on the market under their new brand ZUDO®. "Our philosophy is based on a combination of design and functionality," says Dorn. "We noticed that especially in public buildings with high standards with respect to design, such as hotels or museums, there is
always a fire extinguisher to be found hanging somewhere, completely interrupting the overall picture - our ZUDO® models, however, themselves become a part of the aesthetics of the room."
