As extreme weather events become more frequent we see the power of destruction and are forced to plan for extreme outcomes. Consoul is designed to help a family get back to normalcy after everything including the home has been destroyed.
There are 3 main parts to the Consoul design. 1. an entryway console that appears to be nothing but a stand for 2. a bowl designed as a drop-all for daily pocket items. The metal of this bowl gives off sound as items are dropped inside. It becomes the sound when “daddy or mommy” comes home. Below the bowl and inside the console is 3. the crisis kit. The crisis kit is a safe for items such as passports, birth certificates, USB saved pictures and other items that will help the family relocate or bounce back.
This crisis kit can be taken with the family during evacuation or is designed with materials to survive water and fire damage. The metal bowl is also designed to withstand these events and would be relocated in the entry of a new home where the sound of “daddy or mommy” coming home would bring back a familiar setting.
