This project is the conversion of a Japanese technique, called kokedama, where the plants are worked involving their lump/root in moss. Raising the plants to a higher level, they are hung by wire, allowing a different and interesting decoration with plants.
This project is inspired by the beauty and purity of the Kokedama technique, associated to new trends of interior decoration with plants, where more and more attempts are made to transpose the wild exterior garden to the interior of the house.
These living structures are of low maintenance, since the plants “involved” by this technique need less regular watering than plants in ordinary pots.
The construction of the plants is entirely manual, a work of moulding the soil surrounding the roots.
