How to grow (Italian) furniture

A new armchair made of grass

TERRA! is a line of cardboard skeletons produced by the Italian Studio Nucleo that people can fill with dirt first, and then cover with grass and seeds and get, in no more than two months, a brand new backyard seating...made of grass.

As reported by Time magazine, "the frame ships flat with assembly instructions, and prices start at $280 for an adult-sike armchair.

Studio Nucleo developed this amazing line of furniture in 2000, but it took them more than 15 years to cut down prices in order to commercialise their unique seats, that apparently fit perfectly both in public parks and private gardens.
