Product designer David Bennett created a fantastic machine called Natural Factory that you can bring to the beach for building public seating, while engaging people in a DIY activity. The idea behing the design is that the user would cycle the Factory to the nearest shore, collect driftwood to power the embedded metallic back oven, add sea shells and sand from the chimney’s top and melt it into a fantastic cement-like material that could make seats to be left on site for other people to enjoy.

Designed in partnership with Outdoor Leisure Ltd., Indian designer Bharat Bargava created Green Cardio Zone, a public bench and lamp all in one. While a person is sitting on the bench, somebody else would generate light by pedal-powering the top low-energy lamp and getting fit at the same time, provoking a nice social interaction between two strangers.
