Lifebuoys Better in Numbers


Called the Hope of Ocean, this modern emergency response concept means enhanced lifesaving at sea! A single lifesaving floatation device is not only hard to spot but less effective in mass rescue. However, in numbers, they can be incredibly useful! These hang over the side of the ship. In the event it goes down (knock on wood), they are automatically released and begin to inflate on contact with water. They can then be linked together to form a larger lifesaving ring to keep the stranded individuals together and organized for easier rescue.

The Hope of Ocean concept is a Red Dot Award: Design Concept winner.
