Threat by the American Design Club

View all 14 Photos

The American Design Club presents “Threat,” a curated design exhibition that’s brilliant in it’s comical twist of fun and fear. Chosen designers from Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco and Brooklyn have created their own unique flavor of different ways to protect oneself in dangerous situations. Each product was designed from the sudden moment of fear and suspicion that a intruder might be in the home. “You’ve just heard something in the other room. What would you want to grab to defend yourself?” said Kiel Mead, one of the founders of the club. Both witty and refined, the products have two roles: to protect and to humor.

“People are trying to be funny with this and that’s what we were going after primarily: the humor of the situation. Taking fear and turning it on its head.”
