The best air purifiers out there are the most natural ones: plants. Common indoor plants like bamboo palms and mass canes have been found to "absorb potentially harmful gases and clean the air inside buildings", including formaldehyde, benzene, and carbon monoxide. Makes this Lin Pod Bench design that much more attractive, doesn't it?
We hope there's an outdoor bench version in the works, so one could enjoy the outdoors with a little additional shade. But couldn't you imagine some fella using the plant pot for beer and snack storage...or is that just me daydreaming about my own plans? [via Design Milk]]
