At the top of this bench are solar panels that absorb sunlight and generate heat and transmit electricity to outlets that are built-in into the bench; so people can use this bench not only for relax, but also for charging their laptops and phones.
This bench suitable to the people of different ages and for different functions, becausehas three positions: normal sitting, reclining and lying.
At the bottom of the bench located a shelf with books, which people can read or exchange as bookcrossing.
