Mearth / Furniture and interior design


This furniture was designed for how to survival from the earthquake.
Now no one can prove that the frequency of earthquake has become more than the past. We can only prove that population of the metropolis rises very fast. Lots of big cities are in seismic area. Scholars think if those cities have the earthquake, the casualties will reaching as high as several thousands.
We can't avoid earthquake so we need to protect our future -- the children.
The device in the table will light up for 72 hours after the earthquake struck. Beneath the chair has a replaceable water bag with a straw beside it. On the back of the chair has emergency food.
