There is no greater pleasure than to lean back on a grass hill and enjoy your day. Terra has taken up the idea of relaxing on a grassy field in a park to the next level with its grass furniture that you can grow in your backyard.
The Terra kit includes a laser-cut cardboard frame to be assembled in your backyard. All you need to do is to cover it with soil and sprinkle the grass seeds upon it. A year of water and sunlight will help the frame to develop into a natural chair and sofa shaped objects in your backyard.
Terra is designed by the Studio Nucleo, an Italian design duo and was first put on display in 2000 at the Milane Salone Satellite. Andrea Sanna and Piergiorgio Robino sold off the laboriously hand-cut Terra kits when someone asked. The use of laser cutter has made the production expedient.
The Terra grass armchair costs $279 while three-seater Terra sofa hangs a tag of $659. Definitely not cheap!
Some people have voiced their concerns about the design of the Terra furniture stating that it would need hand trimming and the absence of a proper draining system will form a perpetual puddle in the middle.
