ECOSEAT

Finalist project of ADREAM2012 european contest

PARK BENCH WITH INTEGRATED FLOWER POT MADE OF PRESSED FIBRES

This three-seater park bench is meant to enhance eco-consciousness in an urban setting. The citizens are invited to use it for planting and harvesting various plants, ornamental or useful. With its compact dimensions that combine bench and garden, Ecoseat creates little green sites of true well-being.

MATERIAL

Ecoseat consists entirely of vegetable composite materials. The seating slats are produced from pressed plant fibers and recycled plastic. Its base is a lime moulding reinforced by vegetable residues.

Cities are looking for simple solutions reducing cost and space requirements.  Ecoseat elegantly responds to this need by creating "green islands".

CONCEPT

Imagine spaces & dress differently!

Bench "greened" Ecoseat incorporates a planter creating an area of natural well-being for its users.

APPLICATIONS

Used both in back to back plots in linear installation in wayside, reduced massing allows him to "vegetate" in unusual locations.

The volume of compost and water supply is sufficient for plant type bamboo / wicker or various flowers.
