The 'Tri Cane' has been designed as a concept product that would offer those who require a cane for mobility with the option to enjoy a seat whenever they desire or require. Created by Jordan Lau Tsz Chun, the cane is characterized by its tripod-like design that features a sturdy handle which opens up when stationary to provide the perfect place for the user to sit. The main body of the cane expands to reveal a tripod support for keeping the sitter secure as they rest while waiting in line, for a ride or anything else.
The 'Tri Cane' was described by Chun to Yanko Design when he said, "Current solutions available are mainly generic walking-cane-and-chair hybrids that are often bulky and unwieldy. They also expose too much of the users’ dependence on an object for assistance. Feeling stigmatized, many are discouraged to use them in public. As an alternative solution, Tri Cane is an assistive product that easily disguises as a lifestyle item due to its slim and understated appearance."
