Life-saving raft / chair

Life-saving raft
Life-saving raft

The bamboo chair is designed to be set on ships. Despite its normal use , it can be unfolded and serve as a raft when emergency happens. Passengers have their own chairs so each of them has a lifeboat and thus tragedies like the Titanic might be avoided. Bamboo is an environmental material which is common and grows fast.. And bamboo is our traditional choice when making both chairs and drafs.
