Lento is an unexpectedly whimsical but safe and effective photoelectric smoke alarm designed by Finnish designer Paola Suhonen for Jalo Helsinki.
Lento Fly-Shaped Smoke Detector
Lento will not only enhance the safety of your home, but you will also add a touch of originality. Forget the boring and unattractive smoke alarms on the market – with Lento an essential everyday object such as a smoke alarm will become an original piece of design for decorating your home and keeping it safe. Installing Lento will take only a few seconds thanks to its 3M tape and there will be no need for screws or a power drill.
The whole surface of the smoke alarm acts as a test button, so there are no tiny push buttons, but the whole external casing acts as a press switch for silencing false alarms and testing the performance. Lento has been developed and manufactured according to the requirements and standards for smoke alarms. Lento is lightweight and has a 5 year battery life time.
Available in pink, green, grey, white or black, Lento was awarded the Red Dot Design Award 2011.
