Green Seating for the Concrete Jungle

July 27, 2011 by

Another newcomer to the world of dual purpose indoor/outdoor furniture: Crafted from GFRC (glass fiber reinforced concrete), reclaimed Douglas Fir, and steel, indoor/outdoor planter and bench “14 Carats” is a concept at the intersection of “high craft and geometry” to reflect the urban concrete jungle and, at the same time, green space.

Southern California design firm, Blanchard Fuentes Design, fabricated the combo planter and bench for NELAart Walk’s garden exhibition in collaboration with KnowHow Shop, a cooperative design studio and art gallery in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Knowhow Shop opens their doors to the public every month and provides exposure for the creative work designed and built by shop members. Owned and operated by Popup Design, a Los Angeles based design-build practice, they believe in the power of the network to interject new life into the design world. They offer a cooperative workspace and network with the tools necessary to bring one’s ideas to life.

    Designer, yet. Gardener, doubt it. Nice seat though.

    So not the right plant for next to seating… neither is Sea Holly! That sure looks like a lime tree that has thorns that would rip designers’ clothes (and skin). Youch!

    only concrete offers the kind of versatility that makes it ideal for people who want a natural stone finish customized to work perfectly in their home or office, and only Concrete Jungle offers the craftsmanship and experience needed to deliver this truly unique product in a way that will satisfy both aesthetic and functional decorating needs.
