The Bison Cube allows for the addition of seating, planters, or storage to Bison Innovative Products’ rooftop deck systems. Made of ipe hardwood and stainless and weathered steel, it is available in a range of custom powder-coated finishes. The cubes measure 2' square, the same size of a Bison decking tile, allowing one to be easily switched for the other. When used as a planter, Bison Cube can hold small trees, shrubs, flowers, or any other type of foliage. An ipe hardwood top can be placed on top of the cube to create storage or seating. bisonip.com
