Designer Sara Ebert’s In Case Vase (which shatters to expose a series of sharp serrated cutting edges) – one of many dual purpose furnishings on show at ‘Threat: Objects For Defense And Protection’ an exhibition at Present Company in Williamsburg by the American Design Club.

Kiel Mead, one of the founders of the club, jokes, “This show is evil, but there’s also something so playful about it.”When asked to explain the inspiration for the Threat theme, Mead describes the sudden moment of fear and suspicion that an intruder has entered the home. “You’ve just heard something in the other room. What would you want to grab to defend yourself?”
