Although the Rope Bench is a pretty impressive design, if it had in fact been created by ants, that would have been a phenomenal feat never thought possible. This seat, however, is purely handmade.

The man responsible for the Rope Bench is Yoav Reches. Ants aside, the Rope Bench is uniquely strung together by, you got it, a single rope. Instead of simply knotting or tying it together, though, the rope is traced through grooves that are strategically carved to provide enough support.
