Q-seats / Public seat design


In Hong Kong, people feel tired for waiting public transport. Due to the limited space and cost, most of the bus stop do not have any seats for people.Q-seats is a concept of combining seats and street balustrades together. The design is user friendly; simple and clean. Reference to cinema chair, can save much more space than before.

Besides, Q-seats is easy to install and remove to have maintenance and reuse/replace in different place for a long life span. This design could totally save the cost of repurchase a new one and no need to remove the installed furniture to reduce the waste.
