I have to admit that I've always been against the redesign of the classic fire extinguisher.

Given that most fires allow for only seconds of reaction time, an extinguisher needs to be immediately recognizable. Most folks would have no clue that this thing is for putting out fires, and would look right past it. I suppose if you're okay with the possibility that a fire would break out only in the vicinity of the extinguisher owner, it might work, but otherwise I think this is a classic example of choosing aesthetics over usability.
