Mobile chair design for bridge balustrades.
From a re-used old suitcase.

Intersections of water and roads often result in bridges. Two or more different flows of traffic meet and create a place with 2 levels and 4 directions to view. But nobody ever stays, people only pass. So I re-used a hardcover briefcase and transformed it into a mobile bridge seat. Equipped with 2 cargo straps and cushions, you can carry the briefcase to almost any bridge, fix it to the balustrade within 2 minutes and enjoy the passing people, bikes, dogs, cars, ships.
