Isu-calator (an escalator with a chair)

Urban furniture

This is a furniture, in which we redesigned a step of escalator into a chair.
It changes the view towards the public area. As the city becomes enormous, in the skyscrapers and subway, the escalators are becoming long, so long that we want to sit. It is a mundane sight and usual day because of the nature of such space, but once you change the view as you sit, it starts to look like a different space.
