Phytobench is a seating element that seeds and grows phyto-remediative volunteer plant communities that repair damaged soil ecosystems, providing a natural landscape for green public space and an array of functional seating for public use.  Phytobench greens the soil remediation process by eliminating the need for expensive and polluting processes of chemical treatment, machinery excavation, and disposal typically used in brownfield restoration. It provides a low-impact, local cure that distributed strategically, creates natural green space and fosters urban sustainability through an innovative, and productive object.  Phytobench is made of a CNC cast, soluble, seed-embeded composite and milled, recycled composite lumber.
