The railway station seat / Public Design

The railway station seat

Whenever we wait for a train, we found that some disabled or senior people in wheelchair have to sit in the public seat or in corridor as the result of physical challenge.In order to fix out the problem of jam, here is a special design of public seating in railway station.The public seating consists of 12 pieces separated sitting surface whose width is 22cm. People can move up and down a single seat surface arbitrarily,and there are grooves on both sides making push and pull the surface easier. When anyone in need to rest, they can push 3 pieces surface backwards giving them equal public space, but also can placing their luggage.
