folding-helmet-for-speedy-emergency-evacuation-by-toyo-safety-designboom-03

'Bloom' helmets were designed by Japanese production company Toyo Safety, to be used emergency evacuations. The helmets are meant to open quickly (less than a minute) and are strong enough to protect against falling debris in case of disaster. The helmet weighs a pound and expands outward into helmet shape, and includes buckles that work as a chin strap. The 'Bloom' Helmet was chosen as one of the Best 100 of Japan's G-Mar Good Design Award 2013.
