Why it Matters: We’re always looking for ways to broaden sensory horizons, especially if it serves a purpose. Combining art and safety has long been a pipedream for many innovators and fringe thinkers, but technology is enabling us to get closer to a middle ground every day. Safety is usually thought of as bulky, over prepared and non-organic, leading some to ditch safety for the sake of design. But as design becomes both intelligent and beautiful, we’re finding a potential new middle ground that satisfies a need and also fulfills a vanity requirement. This type of living art can functionally tell how safe, clean or stable the environment around us is—without being threatening in the process.
