Earthquake chic is shaking the world! – or so claims Gus Design Group, maker of the 6 foot long Light Stick. Motivated by the desire to create home furnishings that look good at any angle – whether neatly arranged or strewn haphhazardly against a wall – Gus Design has come up with a line of “Earthquake Chic” products: furniture that looks great in your house under normal circumstances, but still looks just as great after an earthquake.

“It?s six feet of lamp, but disguised as a tilted steel beam. You could almost believe it fell during a tremor, although not likely at such a rakish angle.”
