This table provides protection for students during earthquakes

Earthquake Proof-Table

It may look like an ordinary table, but this piece of furniture by Arthur Brutter and Ido Bruno is specifically designed to serve as a “safe shelter” for students during earthquakes.

From Dezeen:

This table is designed for a range of collapse scenarios. It provides a comprehensive solution by creating both covering, protection and a passageway for rescue team accessibility.

To date, the patent-pending design has successfully withstood a series of rigorous vertical impact tests and is currently awaiting official approval of the world-leading Structural Engineering department of Padua University, Italy.
