And speaking of Park Benches...




....this is my favorite design from the results of a contest which "aims at encouraging designers to imagine and create innovative urban furniture to be placed in the Jardins du Fleuriste park in Brussels for a minimum test period of three years" sponsored by Pro-Materia and Buxelles-Environnement.

The 2007 theme was 'Let's Hug a Tree", and the gallery of submissions is intriguing and well worth a browse.

By Anika Perez and Brice Genre, this winning entry is designed to look like the shadows cast by the canopy of a tree. The ethereal made substantial is something I love in a garden.

I agree, that is by far the best one, although I thought the Brench, s60 was sort of nice, also. Thanks for presenting these.

Wow! This is absolutely gorgeous! And I can think of no less than 4 or 5 trees I could put it under. :)

Awesome, fluid, and so nature-y!
