Tree Bench: Strap on and Sit down

by Hazel Chua

Buildings used to take months, even years, to construct. But in this day and age where time is of the essence, did you know that these structures can be built in less than six days? Well, that’s what China did anyway with a 15-story building recently. The secret to this was because they more or less made use of pre-engineered parts already.

Tree Bench

In a similar (or not so?) similar fashion, you could have your very own park bench – in as little as ten minutes, in fact, if you’re super strong and have a couple of people helping you out while you set it up.

These Tree Benches are a part of Utrecht-based spatial designer Rogier Martens‘ “Aandeboom” series, which translates to something like “attached to trees.” Martens came up with these benches after the Dutch city of Amersfoort invited him to design a temporary bench for a local park.

Tree Bench

All you need to set up the benches is a strong and sturdy tree trunk. The suspension system makes it quick and easy to “fasten” the bench onto the tree, so to speak.

These Tree Benches would be great to add additional seating to parks and other public areas during huge events or concerts. You should contact Rogier if you want to inquire about the pricing on his benches, in case you want one for yourself.
