Inspired by the routine intersections between nature and human beings, the Alcove by designer Elliot Ortiz is an innovative public seating that simply takes the users straight into a natural world surrounded by green vegetation. Finished with granite (base), wood and natural grass (grown for cushion), the Aclove gives new dimensions to human relationships with nature by bringing life to the urban public places. Over the time, nature grows over the seating and creates a truly cozy intimate area to relax. The Aclove not just gives a new look to the public seating, but at the same time it boasts unparalleled functionality, as the users may sit, relax and even skate on its granite base. It’s truly a unique blend of form and function.
