Imece / Earthquake kit


Individuals generally forget about the possible threats of disasters because of the rush of daily lives. Therefore, besides the physical needs after disasters, people should be aware of the risks and what to do in advance. Imece is a basic daily object as a decoration in users' daily lives. However, users keep the Imece product at their home, and after a disaster, they can use the product as a shelter, sleeping mat, and a bag. The most vital feature of this concept is to encourage collaboration among survivors by creating bigger shelters by attaching Imece bags together.
