Sit, Grow, Entertain With Eco Wave Bench

June 4, 2012 by

The slatted seating surface of François de Vecchis’s Eco Wave Bench for GrupoHewi supports the bench’s modular Hi-Mac tapered triangular pots.

 

Containers function interchangeably as planters, a cooler to hold ice and drinks, or to hold various other items depending on the bench’s location and use.

Eco Wave is constructed of faux wood with resin making it water resistant and suitable for heavy duty outdoor use. Great for public spaces, I can also see using one to divide a small urban residential outdoor room into separate seating and dining areas. How would you use them?

    What is the weight capacity? I don’t have any outdoor furniture appropriate for many of my friends who are overweight!

    This is awesome! We seriously need more multi-functional planters like this in our cities! The Italians are really onto something in this area… http://www.smart-urban-stage.com/blog/future-of-the-city/crowded-cities/
