Life Guardian Chair / furniture

Life Guardian Chair
Life Guardian Chair

With the huge change of the climate, we are gradually faced with more disasters than before, especially the flood. In this case, how to flee from it and protect our lives are very important. This chair is an innovative design which helps people to protect themselves while escaping from floods. Most of the time, this is a very fine chair. However, when a flood comes, a life-jacket can be taken out of the chair to be a life-saving tool which prevents user from drowning in the flood. No one knows that if our climate will keep changing greatly or not, we can just prepare for those possibilities. It’s considerate to take precautions beforehand.
