Transeat / public seat


Most public transportation vehicles are equipped with courtesy seats near the front for those passengers who will benefit most from being seated. However, dangers remain, especially if they are holding a baby. Transeat is a convertible seat for public transport. It can be used as an ordinary seat by adults. If it is used by small child, the seat rim can be lifted up to form a safety barrier in front of the body. The conversion process is rapid and easy, making the function suitable for short trips. The alternate colouring of the seat clearly distinguishes it and reminds other passengers of their social obligation to care for those with need.
