FriendlyChair / Sleeping space for public chair

FriendlyChair

The homeless have no house can live because of financial difficulties or some other reasons. Some of them stay at the park, others stay in the underpass, and the others live on the street.
Everyone has the right to use social resources, however, the chair in public is our objective. In order to improve the design of the public chair, we combine a public chair with an extended bed. During the daytime, FriendlyChair offers a place for people to take a rest. At night, it becomes a safe place for the homeless to sleep.
