    AANDEBOOM has this post on Tree Benches, a type of public seating that can easily be attached to a tree using a suspension system. The bench doesn’t harm the tree, and a user easily understands that the bench is made to sit on. It’s a great idea for making public seating, cheaply and easily.

    Says the designer, Rogier Martens:

    I actively used the environment designing the ‘Tree Bench’ for the municipality of Amersfoort and worked with the elements that the park had to offer: trees, city walls, paths, and grass. It is no challenge to just dig a hole and a install a bench.

    An ideal bench need[s]the environment and the environment needs the bench too. To achieve that goal a bench contributes to the park as a walk, sit, rest, kiss, lie, meet, watch, dog walk, day-dream, stretch, run, think, decide, smoke and lunch spot.
