Architect Hideo Kumaki created this unique concept of a curving home in Saitama, Japan that incorporates a vertical garden that’s one-of-a-kind. In an area where the population is quite dense, planning ahead for ventilation, noise reduction and privacy are all important. This home’s program incorporated something different that provides a new way of living for this small family.
Wooden. Rugs. Rolls those two words around in your mind hole for a minute or two. German artist Elisa Strozyk has created three variations of these delightful coverings. Strozyk dyes and connects row upon row of triangular pieces as she pulls together the end result of a colored wooden rug, which is so flexible that you can literally crumple it up and toss it into a corner.
