Shutter Chair / Chair

Shutter Chair

After a rainy afternoon, many people would like to have a walk outside with companions. But what if you want to have a rest while all seats are wet? Let’s try pulling the arms with your companion to expose the dry side of the seat. You will not only be able to sit comfortably on the part without being touched by drips, but also lead to more communication among people, if you can find someone else to help pull together. What’s more, even you needn’t sit yourself, how about just pulling them for the next person? Function: pull the arms of the chair to rotate every piece, turning the dry side of the seat, and people can sit without getting wet.
