Honeycomb chairs

In my Design Methods and Materials’ class, I had to do a street furniture, so I was wondering to design a chair. First I had some ideas:

DSC_0884 The blue with brown one is a honeycomb chairs which can be moved separately; the one under it is a pillar with four chairs around four sides, and each chair can be extended to three chairs, so it can fit more people, and the umbrella above the pillar is to keep the rain off; the one on the right hand side is also a chair which has a bird nest as a huge light and decoration. The pillar is octagonal, so except the four original chairs, the other four can be pulled out from the pillar to extend the chair.

Then I fond some inspirations:

Dimensions 10.75”W x 10.75”H x 3.75”D 390c1e43cc7b8d4bffbff3c642e55ef9 honeycomb-modular-furniture-system-by-nydadesign2 honeycomb-modular-furniture-system-by-nydadesign3 honeycomb-modular-furniture-system-by-nydadesign6

Here is my model, it’s 1:15.

This honeycomb chair can be divided into individual chairs and group chairs; both of them can be opened, so people can put their stuff in them, and the individual chairs can also be pulled up as tables. The reason to chose honeycomb shape is because it’s organic and natural, and I would like it be placed in parks, so there is a demonstration underneath.
