Harmony chair
Harmony chair

This is a public bench which enables shape changing. The seat plate of the bench can change its height based on the ages and requirements of users, with three modes including adult mode, children mode, and the disabled mode. Adult mode features the highest height, while children mode features the lowest height. When the disabled in wheelchair wants to have a rest here, he or she only needs to select corresponding mode to make the seat plate automatically slide to the vertical direction as the back. In this way, the wheelchair can easily enter without moving. All modes switching are done with the wheel on the armrest front.
