Bright Winter Sun / Street furniture

Bright Winter Sun
Bright Winter Sun

This is a bus stop with an automatic heating system. While passengers wait for the bus coming, they could be warmed by this stop in cold days. Moreover, I applied Green Technology to this product, a solar panel is placed on the top of the stop, and piezoelectric devices setting in the base plate. When the sun shines or when people stand on it, these devices would generate electricity and then use it when the heating system working. In short, I hope this bus stop could make people feel warm in cold days without any energy waste!
