SOFT BOX / Disaster relief box


Sleep becomes a big problem for victims after their houses are destroyed by natural disasters. This design is intended to improve the boxes of relief supplies so that they can be removed to form a makeshift mattress with a simple operation, which can help the victims have a comfortable temporary place to sleep.
The boxes need to have soft padding inside to protect relief supplies from damage, which is a good combination with temporary mattresses. A material box is made up of cardboard with soft padding. After the material is taken out, the two material boxes can be made into a temporary mattress by simple cutting and combination.
