The most secure iron, PUSHIRON. 
Just push it as if it is a push-button switch

This is a novel alternative to conventional electric irons posing risk of burn injuries. Inspired by push buttons, 
Pushiron is designed as such to uncover the hotplate when pressing the big, red button. 

Pushiron can free you from danger as it enhances safety measures. This particularly allows use in homes with young children. Pushiron is installed with readily accessible button that can be immediately pressed once exposed to danger. 

With a red button, one can simply control the temperature and the hotplate accordingly; turning the button clockwise immediately heats the 'Carbon heater'. When not in use, the button will be automatically pushed to hide the unprotected hotplate in the cover.

Accidents from uncovered hotplates.
Burns/ Damage in clothes / Fire Accidents

Not only do little children but also adults may be exposed to the risk of being injured, if the temperature of the hot plate rises over 200'C. Additionally, when accidentally dropping the hot iron or obliviously leaving it on the top of clothes while it is switched on raises the risk of fire accidents and thus requires special care in handling.
Nevertheless, ever since 1917, conventional electric irons has been posing risk of such accidents. 





When you push the red button 
a hidden hotplates appears.





PUSHIRON
The most secure iron. Just push it as if it is a push-button switch.

Pushiron aims to "propose a new concept of iron." The rounded shape, which seems to be somewhat impractical for ironing, is an example of the shape that can best show the concept. As a designer, I aim to make a design that makes daily life happy with one idea.
