The Banc-Nana is now an all-time classic at LeMonde Studio. The original design is celebrating ten years. From a simple banana bench to today’s urban sustainable mini-park, our Banc-Nana has a little something for everyone. Our current setup includes a giant banana peel bench, a smaller banana bench (which won a Canadian design award), a human-powered music box and two off-grid palm trees combining sound, lights and water. The setup is designed to fight heat islands and climate change while keeping water usage minimum and adapting to the ever-changing weather. The entire structure does not require any electricity.
