Here’s an interesting idea spotted on Manufactum: instant benches made from gabion-cage supports and a length of wood. “The benches will gradually harmonize with the surrounding landscape; in time, weeds will take root and various plants will start to climb and twine around the wire meshes, and the bench will become part of the landscape.” The Gabion Bench components are available from Manufactum for €298.
