The Animals series designed by Italian firm Parson creates a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to security equipment.
Surveillance cameras are typically regarded for their function and not for their design, and since they are used for security and monitoring purposes they tend to be seen as formidable and intimidating things.
Italian design firm Parson has designed a new series of surveillance cameras that are fitted with outer shells resembling different cute animals like owls, squirrels, other types of birds, and more. The different looks of the cameras change the initial reaction of most people to surveillance equipment from suspicion to surprise and delight.
The series creates a more visually attractive alternative to surveillance cameras and makes them less intimidating, especially when used in places like schools and children’s nurseries.
