Bench/Deck Chair

With the functions of a bench and a deck chair; it can be seated by only one person or shared with others in public space. In order to keep the balance and stability when folded, the original 4 legs are increased to 6 legs. With this 6-leg modeling, the body looks like a standing dancing lion when it is folded. 4 pieces of solid wood are glued, cut into 2, so it still matches when folded. The arc can fit the human body; the surface has gone through the CNC polishing treatment; the boards are jointed by tenons; the axle is made of steel. Due to the weight of the structure the bench transforms to a deck chair easily and keeps its balance.
