After-rain-rest / Public bench

After-rain-rest
After-rain-rest

After the rain, benches are always too wet to sit until they are air-dried.
The following is how we design a chair to solve this problem in a simple way. First, the chair is trenched on the both sides of central surfaces. Two sides of chair surface are sloped towards central trench where the water collects. Next, there is another inclination on trenches along the bench where the collected water can drain out of it. When users need a dry bench immediately, all he has to do is to push down the side button and flip it to the dry face.
