They call it . . . Plant Chair

Ok gang as I was searching around I stumbled across this “chair“. Thoughts? Opinions?

Here’s the promo line:

Plants growing around your bum? Yes! This wooden chair by Kinokoto is designed to be a stress-free zone with wells for plants in the seat back.


The above is a close-up of the chair and below is the big picture look

So, is it usable? How would you fit this chair into a landscape? A stand alone piece maybe? Part of some sort of set? I dunno.

As for myself I am having a hard time getting past the milk crate look.


Kinokoto is a Japanese  company that designs all sorts of modern looking furniture, if you have a chance check some of it out. But it’s all in Japanese, so fair warning.
