Two young Swiss designers launched a collective in 2014, called SUPERLIFE, and the pair have developed the BE READY collection of everyday objects that perform double duty during a natural disaster.
ALIVE mounts under a desk and not only is it an emergency whistle, its base becomes bright so you can be detected by emergency services while hiding.
BLACKOUT is a floor lamp that continues to work when the power goes out with the help of a battery. The top part comes off the stand to become a flashlight.
MEDUSE is a carpet that comes in handy if there’s a flood or a water-type natural disaster. It inflates to become a life preserver.
POUMON is a pen holder for your desk that also contains a filter to allow you to breathe in case of a fire or dust cloud.
