Inventive Planted Stone Seating

October 22, 2012 by

I love Philippe Nigro’s stone Saturnia bench for Piba Marmi’s Monocromo exhibit at Italian design trade fair Abitare il Tempo.

Envision the center planter filled with Piet Oudolf-inspired blend of grasses alongside swathes of Nepeta, and a dash of purple top Verbena. Yum.

In a larger space, I can imagine several of the benches creating a bucolic conversation seating area. What do you think?
