These examples of industrial, outdoor furniture range from grass-themed bench seating to communal dining concepts that are easy to customize and move around. As urban lounge spaces become more prevalent in large cities, contemporary furniture is not only being used for function but is also becoming a community-encouraging tool for urban planners and architects.

Standouts include communal, outdoor seating that encourages strangers to spark up a conversation along with dual-purpose bench concepts that are designed to double as a eco planter in both exterior and interior, public spaces.

Changing the face of industrial, outdoor furniture, these examples marry function with style and are not only used to beautify an urban environment but to also connect individuals from a particular community.
