disappear stool / stool

disappear stool

This is a stool which can “disappear". In some narrow houses or in public places, the ingenious combination of the floor and the stool can save and utilize space effectively. When the stool is vacant, it can convert into the “floor” to ensure unobstructed walking. At that time, the stool surface is the opposite of the floor, which can keep the stool surface clean. It also refers to the structure of “Mazha” of Ancient China to make the structure more stable and more nimble. Additionally, in the process of transportation, a large part of space will be saved.
