Like any design junkie, I have a soft spot for dual-function furniture, and the Lite-On Fresh-Chair is a prime example of a skillful seat. The fungal-formed umbrella shape of this green bench shelters worn-out walkers from sun and rain, and collects these natural resources to feed an internal shaft of shrubs.

The plants within the circular public bench breathe out cool refreshing air on sweltering sitters in summer months, and the same byproduct is harnessed to power integrated LED lighting throughout the seating space. The Lite-On Fresh-Chair is truly another genius green design that succeeds to satisfy solutions to several challenges simultaneously.
