How can we create a comfortable green leisure space in an increasingly congested and highly overpopulated environment? A few solutions can include the transformation of the rooftops into green gardens and the re-design of all public areas. The use of green modular furniture can be used in both solutions.
The inspiration of this design comes from the idea of floating ice. The main idea of the design is to evoke people’s awareness of protecting polar glaciers and combining it with the traditional grasslands patterns. This greenbelt is modular and each piece can accommodate between 3 and 5 people. Modules can be combined in hundreds of different ways depending on size and use requirements. Another advantage of the modular system is the ease to repair and replace any of its components.
