Benchair / Bench and Chair

Benchair
Benchair

The concept of Benchair comes from Sharing. You can give another one a seat from the chair you are sitting on. Both one person and two people can enjoy Benchair!

Benchair combines the chair with a bench, so it has two forms,chair and bench. It has a bi-pivot to help you to convert easily between two forms.

Benchair can play a special role in pubic places such as book stores and parks. As you prefer sitting alone, you can use the chair form. Otherwise, if you want to show your kindness, you can transform the chair into a bench to share a seat with people. Benchair is like a bridge to connect two people who doesn’t know each other.
