This Planter And Lamp Might Save Your Life In An Earthquake


Earthquakes are very common in Japan. There’s a tremor every five minutes and over 2,000 earthquakes that can be felt by people every year. Being prepared for the next earthquake is always important, and many people have emergency kits ready, but few people own safety helmets.

J. Walter Thompson Japan and Tanizawa Seisakusho, Ltd., the market leader in helmet manufacturing in Japan, have launched +MET, a project that aims to make safety helmets hidden in plain sight, in the form of home decor items that would be easily obtainable, and be kept within reach at the sign of an earthquake.


This resulted in them designing a plant pot and table lamp that wouldn’t look out of place in a home or an office.
