The Kupu smoke alarm’s form is sleek, smooth and organic. Its textile-covered surface gives it a warm stylish appearance that no one would be ashamed to have on display. The installation takes only a few seconds and takes place without the need for screws or a drill. There are no small buttons that are difficult to use, because the whole outer surface acts as the contact to correct a false alarm or to test operational readiness. Kupu comes in five different colours and as a chrome-plated version.
