Every day, humans put their own comfort before considerations for nature, though a project like this Temporary Biodegradable Seating scheme is a rare attempt to make experiencing the outdoors a lot lighter on the Earth.
Designer Dan LaBarca has conceived a system ideal for accommodating infrequent influxes of people in public places. He's developed a modular bench that can be arranged in a handful of different ways so to interact with adjacent elements and the people who seek a place to repose. During parades and concerts, the S-shaped seats can wind along walkways or spread across lawns. Temporary Biodegradable Seating can be half stacked to form backrests and loungers, and when there's no longer a need for them, the soy foam stuffing can be disposed of to compost.
