The Grass Still Grows: A Sustainable Bench By Marron Rouge And Benjamin Rousse


The green curves” is the name full of humor and poetry chosen by Marron Rouge for his new creation, the result of a successful collaboration with designer Benjamin Rousse. The idea for the project came from the discovery of synthetic grass by Jean-Marc Attia, creator of the brand Marron Rouge, who had initially proposed the collection “Grass“, with 3 stools with seat recycled synthetic turf. This grass is recovered on sports fields. Jean-Marc wanted to open a space for creativity to other designers and he naturally ask Benjamin Rousse giving him carte blanche to think about furniture using this material. Thus the “Green curves’ bench was born.What sit creativity of Marron Rouge

For Marron Rouge, the desire to work with Benjamin Rousse was born following a meeting on the exhibition desDesigners on Eurexpo Lyon organized by Maud Rondard. Benjamin had his “Bench Pebble“. Jean Marc was sensitive to the aesthetic, poetic and environmental approach to this creation. Benjamin enjoyed the Jean-Marc approach as a designer, and diversion of material, its sensitivity to materials recycling and upcycling. So both shared the common desire to create pieces that challenge. The thinking was to highlight the matter that is too often now considered a poor material and divert it to make “something” aesthetic and comfortable. The irregularity of this material called synthetic grass associated with a more contemporary form of this object is something unique, aesthetic and comfortable. The result is a contrast between a geometric wood structure and seat curves inviting comfort. The sight of this material inspires sensuality.
