Even if a place is littered with 'no loitering' signs, people will often stay in comfortable public spaces long after they are welcomed; the Courtesy Stool provides another way to ensure that this does not happen. The Courtesy Stool converts the traditional hour glass into a simple, sleek and sophisticated seat that indicates just how long a person has been sitting on it.

Designed by Cheryl Yang, the Courtesy Stool is a clever and helpful concept that will solve a very common problem. Even if the sitter is not aware that their time is up, passersby will see and be able to politely show with proof that it is now their turn to sit and relax.
