Take a Break / Outdoor stair handrail

Take a Break
Take a Break

When Climbing Mountains or Visiting Shrines, the road often lies a very long stairway until a certain breakpoint. The process isn’t just tiring, it’s also a burden for seniors especially those with cardiovascular disease.
Take a Break uses a large amount of outdoor railings, with universal sizes designed for the best efficiency, providing temporary seats upon a person’s needs. To rest, simply flip down the handrail by sitting. To leave, flip up the handrail to stand. Does not take up other people’s road space. Allowing visitors to rest anytime while climbing, decreasing the burden in the legs and spines.
