CheStick / Stick


From daily life object and actions, fun is discovered.
Not creating something new but tells a story about creating fun out of the cane that old people carry with them in daily life.
By creating fun for interaction among the old people, these senior citizens get away from loneliness and find joy in life.
(At the end of the cane, there is a stamp that is shaped like a horse from chess which is connected to the handle of the cane. The cane can be used to stamp markings on soil and such markings can be erased by stepping on then. Thus, a simple play of chess can be created with the cane and soil. It can produce fun and natural exercise.
