This planter and lamp might save your life in an earthquake

Earthquakes are very common in Japan. There’s a tremor every five minutes and over 2,000 earthquakes that can be felt by people every year.

Being prepared for the next earthquake is always important, and many people have emergency kits ready, but few people own safety helmets. Normally when an earthquake hits, there are safety helmets available, but often they’re stored in a cabinet or storage room and aren’t easily within reach. J. Walter Thompson Japan and Tanizawa Seisakusho, Ltd., the market leader in helmet manufacturing in Japan, have launched +MET, a project that aims to make safety helmets hidden in plain sight, in the form of home decor items that would be easily obtainable, and be kept within reach at the sign of an earthquake.
