Surprise Rail / public design

Surprise Rail
Surprise Rail

When people feel tired during their shopping,they always want to find a place to have a rest.However,in order to save space ,shopping malls are not set any seats for rest.Therefore, it is designed for rest.It is just a railing,but different from normal ones,it has spring gear inside,just like a spring chair.If this kind of chairs are set in the shopping malls,I believe,people can easily have a rest when they are tired ,and much more people will be willing to accompany with their girlfriends or parents to shop.Also,it is a good way topromote mutual bonding.
