NAPanda / Napping Chair for Construction Workers

NAPanda
NAPanda

About 280 million construction workers in China dedicate themselves to the social infrastructure everyday. However, virtually none of them could enjoy an average nap during the working break, for most of the time lying on the sand and stones directly. In order to change the matter, we used the image of Panda, the creature always sleeping soundly, to create NAPanda which is a specific napping chair and public service for construction workers. The NAPanda chair consists of 4 detachable parts and is made of recyclable materials. When the chair could be easily removed and recycled, workers could take a nice and convenient nap everywhere.
