"Life is Precious". Beautiful Survival-Kit Canister

On the Fort Standard website, a beautiful cylinder called Life is Precious, a stunning looking survival kit. I love one of the engravings, which says Use the contents of this canister before you need to rely on them.

When Wallpaper magazine asked Fort Standard to design a piece for their Handmade Exhibition in Milan during Salone Del Mobile, they set out to design a survival kit with the intention of creating something which looked and felt as precious as its contents. The design became largely about the packaging as it needed to be serious, yet beautiful; an object you could easily bring with you on a day hike or even keep in your car or boat but most importantly an object you would WANT to bring with you everywhere.
