A landscape product usually helps maintain, contain, or beautify an outdoor environment, but in the case of the Chair to Garden collection, the product itself becomes part of the landscape. The collection, produced by Paris-based 5.5 Designers, features an armless chair, a table, and a bench with one, two, or no arms.
Each piece is made from cast concrete with a reservoir for a growing medium. In the case of the chair, the back is a planter; the bench also has a planter in the back as well as space for two more optional planters serving in the place of arms; and the table edge has a shallow lip that can hold dirt or gravel. There is enough room in the planters for the root system of small topiary or flowers. The table's lip is deep enough for grass. Drainage holes in all three of the furniture pieces ensure that plants will not drown.
