Sun follower / Public bench

Sun follower

'Sun follower' is a design of public bench where humans and nature could rest together. Man needs shade to rest and plants need sunlight to get nourishment. If human rest in the sun-blocked shade which made by plants, they can meet both needs at the same time. It is also a participatory design that users can rotate the bench on their own, considering the position of the sun and keep it in a good condition for both plants and man.
