Designer Chiu Chih has transformed the disgusting reality of high pollution levels with this stylish breathing apparatus, showcased in some breathtaking photos. The plant-based device is part of a survival kit project Chih has dubbed “voyage on the planet”. These designs were originally inspired by the uncertain state of the world and our future in it, creating a simple and natural solution to a pretty grave problem.

Chih imagined the equipment that needed to be designed in order to for humans to survive in an apocalyptic and dystopian future. It is more an artistic statement than a useful device, as it is not entirely realistic. The design would not provide enough clean air to be able to survive in toxic conditions.

But with a series of photos this stunning, that detail is of little significance. Instead the project brings attention to the vulnerability of the planet and of humanity, as well as being a call to respond, all through a touching and beautiful work of art.

    I’m 12 and i believe it’s a good idea in apocalyptic conditions although, you may need to water the plant. What would you do if you had to? You will be exposed to pollution. A clear container is awesome because it has access to sunlight. The idea of it still seems a little weird and can use some updating. What if you need to clean the container and it gets all green? What if the plant can’t take in all that carbon dioxide that fast? There’s a lot of “What ifs” so I don’t think this plan will end up working until a couple of years or maybe until it gets popular and is the big question: “will plants on our backs in huge containers keep us berthing during rough conditions or will it fail the test?!
