The Ultimate in GREEN Seating

Growing Trees Into Chic, Living Chairs

Oh, the Swiss. Look at what Michel Bussien’s made. It’s called the “Growing Chair” and it’s potted just for you! Sit on your favorite tree and think about how elvish you are. You can see it growing like it’s an ant-farm! Potted and on rollers here, but if you plant it with the right elements in nature, remove the box and the plant is treeish!

It’s an experiment in naturetoligy. Or naturalism. Or un-naturalism? In any case, Bussien wants us to get back to our roots, literally, etc.

Bussien explains his creation in his design manifesto, saying:

“To move further we need to incorporate the living matter that surrounds us.  Let us use the complexity of living nature and include it in our creations.  These creations will then redefine the way we reconstruct nature.  Only then will we truly move forward.  It is time for man and nature to reunite.”
