EASY B2B / furniture design


Flood is one of the most serious natural disasters in the world. Once the flood comes, many children will be trapped in the kindergarten. The local government will need to provide a lot of manpower and resources to rescue them. EASY B2B redesigned the structure of the bed. When left unused, it can be stacked up to free space for storage and transportation. When a flood comes, teachers can remove the legs of the bed and turn it into a rescue boat to help firefighters rescue children. Several boats can also be joined together by connectors to expand the safe floating area and enhance the stability to protect more children and related personnel.
