This nifty walking stick can turn into a stool when you need! The Tri-cane considers the needs of the person using it, offering more than just support. The cane’s innovative design allows the handle to open up into a seat, while the cane itself comes with three collapsible legs that open outwards, turning it into a tripod-stool.
The Tri-cane is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2019.
Designer: Jordan Lau Tsz Chun
“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,” Jordan told Yanko Design.
