Of course the French have fashionable fire extinguishers

While it may make sense to have a universal design language to identify a lifesaving product, Fire Design considers this an oversight and has gotten creative. With over 400 different designs — custom options available — you can choose anything from original copper (a throw back to the classics) to an extinguisher that looks like a wine bottle. 

As this extremely French video illustrates, Fire Design's extincteur works just as well as a red one.

And in case you forgot, this is how an Olympic gold medalist puts out a fire.
