A Clock Containing Emergency Supplies to Help Survive an Apocalypse

Wednesday March 21, 2018 Written by Andrew Mueller


Few people are more tiresome than ‘preppers’, those folk who are almost invariably the fortunate citizens of secure countries, but who nonetheless make a massive deal about being equipped to survive the apocalypse. South Koreans, for obvious reasons, have more reason than most to worry, and this concern has been addressed by design studio SWNA, which has secreted inside a minimalist clock a basic emergency kit including a thermal blanket, bandage, whistle and SOS banner. The near impossibility of any of this helping
 does not undermine the artefact’s stylishness in any way.
