Gallery: Phytobench: Public Seating That Repairs Damaged Ecosystems


The “Phytobench” is a dynamic public seating element made of milled, recycled lumber that actively grows plant communities to repair damaged soil ecosystems. Designed by SoftRigid, the multi-tasking bench serves to restore the natural landscape and serves as eco-friendly seating on which to rest weary behinds. And we’re not the only ones who think so – “Phytobench” recently earned an honor award at the 2009 Seoul Design Olympiad.
