Fire safety has never been so trendy: a Dutch designer has created the Chick-a-dee, a bird-shaped smoke alarm that chirps instead of beeps. The product was a hit at the New York International Gift Fair, and will be on shelves in the US this month. In other news, Frank Gehry builds an igloo and Manhattan's skyline will get a distinctive addition in One57.
