These aluminium CCTV camera cases by Italian designer Eleanor Trevisanutto transform security equipment into animal characters.
Eleanor Trevisanutto created the Animals series for Italian company Parson to make electronic surveillance seem less intimidating.
Each device is encased within layers of brightly coloured, sand-cast aluminium, which resemble a series of tree-dwelling animals. The camera lens on each character is hidden behind a semi-transparent black screen.
The cameras attach to a wall via an arm that looks like a tree branch, with electrical cables concealed inside.
A bright blue parrot comes with a golden beak and off-white face atop a perch, while a red squirrel conceals its camera with a curved tale and small paws held up to its nose.
A blue and teal dove perches on a copper coloured branch, concealing the camera behind a semi-transparent breast plate, and a seagull in mid-flight has bright purple screws for eyes and a sweeping wingspan.
The cricket in two shades of green, perches atop two branches with the screws in the legs matching those used in the eyes. The owl meanwhile, sits tall on its perch and a single piece of bronze-coloured aluminium gives the camera its avian characteristics.
The final character is a chameleon finished in forest green, which sits on top of a two-pronged perch with a curling tail.
The series is not currently for sale, but interested parties can sign up on the Parson website.
