The tranSIT Chair Makes Metropolitan Meandering Accessible to All

There are plenty of possibilities resting on the tranSIT Chair that make the city a much more accommodating place for people of all ages. This concept was born of an initiative to encourage the elderly (especially) to be out and active, and to provide them with support.

Michael Oechsle has designed a cutting-edge unit that integrates a solar-powered LED streetlight with a single chair and an integrated sign. The smooth white urban furnishing would also have its very own QR code to provide passers-by with a link to more detailed information about that particular location. The tranSIT Chair provides a place for tired legs to rest, and it would also make a practical seat at a bus stop, where there isn't otherwise space on the sidewalk.
