iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2020

When a fire occurs indoors, people naturally try to escape through the nearest exit. However, sometimes an apparently safe passage is already filled with smoke, making escape impossible. This handle is designed to sense the smoke concentration on the other side of the door, so that in a fire scenario people can quickly orient themselves to the safest escape route.
