See how we’re designing for an extreme future

The next 100 years won’t look like the last 100. As floods and fires sweep across countries, and we face life on Earth with new categories of ultraviolent weather, we’re going to need new categories of clothing. So we make gear that protects you from fires, megastorms, extreme heat… and the Apocalypse. Just in case things don’t go to plan.

Some future catastrophes will be beyond our control, like an asteroid strike, interplanetary contamination, super-volcano, or the heat death of the universe. Others include extreme climate change, a Malthusian crisis – where our population outpaces agricultural production – or the kind of ecological collapse that we’re dealing with right now.
