The design aims at benches to install clapboards to the lower part of bench and increase retractable transparent curtain in the bench around which are idle in the evening in squares, parks and other public places. During the day, it can be placed items in the lower bench as an ordinary bench; at night, it provides a simple rest space for homeless people. The design makes full use of the resources of benches when they are idle at night and reflects the humane care of vulnerable groups.
