London’s National Theatre has created a sustainable and fragrant outdoor environment.

The National Theatre in London is showcasing a collection of outdoor furniture that’s both practical and environmentally friendly. The benches, tables and stools have a dual purpose: they also grow herbs and plants that are used by the terrace café. The fragrance of the plants and flowers are designed to attract bees to create a hollistic ‘living space.’

The set of outdoor furniture is created by Ryan Frank, a well-known designer known for his sustainability ethos. The bee-friendly pieces are constructed from raw salvaged timber parts and the inspiration was drawn from the distinctive wood grain found in the National Theatre’s building structure.
