Public Slide Bench

The design of this kind of Public Slide Bench originated from the abacus used in China, it contains several steel pipes and some round beads, and can stir freely. When you need to sit down to have a rest, you can stir part of the beads together, you can also talk with the person next to you by removing the beads. When you need to lie down to have a rest, you can stir all the beads together.
The sitting surface of the round beads can be divided into two layers, which are linked in accordance with the traditional Chinese tenon-and-mortise work. If one layer break up, you can change for the other one.
