HomeHero Kitchen Fire Extinguisher
One of my biggest pet peeves in product design is irresponsible aethetics: that is, things that are all form and no function (basically, the majority of what we have come to know as product design). The HomeHero Kitchen Fire Extinguisher, however, available exclusively through Home Depot, is a great example of aesthetics with purpose. The HomeHero is an alternative to the big clunky red fire extinguishers we all know, which are so ugly that they’re often stowed away underneath our counters, in closets, or somewhere else out of sight. The HomeHero is beautifully formed, so that you’re more likely to have it on your counter top, within reach should you need it. Careful, though, your toaster may be jealous. Available for just under $30 from the Home Depot.
