Masked - In Flight by Sruli Recht

To coincide with Icelandic design festival DesignMarch, which began in Reykjavik yesterday, here are some parchment gas masks by Reykjavik designer Sruli Recht.

Called Masked - In Flight, the masks are made of folded parchment and contain respirators with replaceable filters.

They form part of the Non-Product series of objects from Recht's fashion studio.
