If all public seating was as good-looking as the Monolit Bench, cities would get an overall facelift. In fact, it would probably snowball into other public designs as well. Essentially, the Monolit Bench is a laser cut stratified seat that blends in beautifully with the manicured shrub that surrounds it. It is so seamless that people might believe that it was there first and that the bush simply grew around it.

The Monolit Bench was designed by Pawel Grobelny for Jardin d’Albertine in Brussels, Belgium. A stunning edition to the garden it is set it, it is made entirely out of wood. In this way, the Monolit Bench is a perfect combination of modernity and tradition. Not to mention that it complements nature in an urban way.
