Tord Boontje was inspired by the story that JMW Turner used to visit this spot by the river, as he was able to see both the sun rising and setting above the water. The benches and chairs that Boontje has created are able to turn to follow the path of the sun, so that those using them can choose their view of the surroundings. The benches also double as planters, incorporating drought tolerant species such as Agapanthus, Fragaria (Strawberry) and Tulbhagia (Society Garlic).
