About The Sit Project

The SIT Project is an endeavor in neighborhood solidarity based on the premise that if you see something that is broken, go fix it. I find chairs that have been tossed to the curb and are destined for the landfill, then take them home and re-FAB-ilitate them;  whether that means lassoing a broken arm rest together with colorful duct tape, painting a laughing face on the seat, or simply adding a frilly parasol.  Then I take the newly restored chair and plant it at a bus stop with no seating. It’s that easy.

    A new/old type of bench

     

     

    I’m a regular page turner of treehugger.com’s design section so I wasn’t very surprised when I came across something this morning that I absolutely fell in love with.

    It features this great tradition of using renewable materials to make public seating in the Netherlands. Florida has an abundant supply of reeds, so I’ll looking forward to making my own version of these benches for SIT.
