escarzano / Folding seat

To be able to put on one's shoes while standing? Some young people are still capable of bending down without losing their balance. But what about the people who are 50 and over? The "folding seat" is the solution. It's elegant and made of wood which can be mounted onto any wall by pullingl the grip, and then comes an automatic armrest, and it gives a much better and secure feeling. The main feature on the "folding seat" is that it doesn't appear stigmatizing but rather integrates itself in any surroundings. Made from moulded plywood it can be folded up nicely and neatly on the wall.
