Sukui / Disaster Protection Cape

Sukui
Sukui

Amongst the various issues that occur during emergencies such as earthquake and flash floods, having no protection while evacuating is one of the most dire problems as it can potentially cause catastrophic tragedies such as crush injuries and deaths.Designed ergonomically to cater for limited time and accessibility constraints, Sukui is a mobile protection cape with inbuilt parent-child attachment system which protects user and child from severe blunt impact caused by flying debris and collapsing rubbles. Constructed with impact absorbing triangular tessellations, Sukui aims to increase survivability and minimise risks of family separation.
