Fire-lock

Research project ORIGO in collaboration with Halmstad University and KTH. ORIGO is about using design to achieve gender related changes and innovation in organisations and workplaces. I had the privilege to work with the realisation of one of the concepts, called the Fire-lock, created by Karin Ehrnberger and Camilla Andersson, Researchers at KTH. It includes two units, a smoke detector and a door lock. The door unlocks when critical levels of heat, smoke and gas are detected by the smoke detector. This makes it possible for rescue personnel to enter the home without breaking down the door and reduces the importance of physical strength. My work resulted in 3D documentation for rapid prototyping.
