You might not often come across such artistic furniture that tends to move beyond its primary function, i.e. seating. Including a bench, a planter, a street light and a power generator in a single piece of furniture, designer Steve Ma introduces, conceives rather, ec-O bench – ‘a semi circular moon shaped prop’.
While it’s crafted in recycled stuff such as bio-Aluminum hauled out of outmoded aircrafts, the bio-glass adds a green sheen to its overall green design. The bench’s lighting surface with four lighting channels are embedded with thin solar films, and they generate electricity. Lest you ask for more, ec-O comes with an inbuilt water collector and water filter to sustain green on it. Next, as Evolo points it out, “the bench could contribute to LEED credits and USGBC project certification.”
