Shockproof/ Earthquake mattress

Problem:
Earthquakes are kinds of unexpected natural disasters. If an earthquake struck in the midnight, it was easy for people to get hurt by stuff falling from the shelf and lose their lives in the sleep.

Solution:
In order to increase the survival rate/ reduce loss of life , we design a beehive-shaped mattress, using the materials of PU and latex, to reduce the possibility of damage from the stuff falling. When the earthquakes happen, people could use this mattress to save their own lives.
