This freestanding fruity fortification is an example of Stefan Sagmeister's work. The artist used 7,200 real bananas to create this fruity wall.

The wall was part of Stefan Sagmeister's exhibition called 'Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far,' and shows a unique way of making use of consumer products as materials for design.

I wonder how quickly this banana wall will rot?

Implications - As society looks to a greener lifestyle, so have artists who are taking that attitude to their works. They're now looking for alternative materials to create inspiring pieces that are imaginative and makes a bold statement about their eco attitudes. With the number of reusable items available and an environmental mentality, more brands will join the movement to cater to consumers looking for eco products on the market.
