The Waste Bench.
Don’t be WASTEFUL take a pew
Commissioned by Glastonbury Festival Green Crafts Field, The WASTE BENCH was created by Bruce Gordon and his team at Kite Creative.
A statement piece, constructed from 100% waste materials, to provide functional seating and bring people together.
Following a circular process, this fully sustainable bench was created to highlight the amount of waste produced in the built environment.
Made from scaffold planks, floorboards, ceiling joists and pallets left over from Kite’s build projects, this timber would normally be burnt or end up in landfill. Instead it has been repurposed to celebrate the honesty and beauty of the materials.
Designed to allow a shared experience, to embrace the surroundings, and take a moment to chill out from the festival.
