Two sided stools / stool

Two sided stools
Two sided stools

In China, there are many people living in remote areas, their life is very difficult.Many of them can't even afford a stool suitable for different situations.
for example,They don't have a lower bench for them to laundry,handling crops,or others work.
So they choose to sit on a stone, on the ground or on the edge of a door.It's uncomfortable and unhealthy.
So,I redesigned one of the most popular wooden stools in rural China,I added a board to the side of this bench.Users only need to turn it 90 ° to meet the use of different heights.
In addition,it costs little to add a small board to the bench of poor families
