g,a,r,d,e,n 2012 by Norihiko Terayama

At what point does stationary become art? Or, more specifically, at what point does a ruler become art? I’ll let you answer that question but in the meantime, have a look at what is possibly the most gorgeous ruler ever designed. Created by Norihiko Terayama of Studio Note, “g,a,r,d,e,n 2012” is a remix of an older product but this time using various wild greens found in your garden.  You can know carry around a garden in your pocket.

Each herb or wildflower is set in acrylic at 1cm intervals creating a poetic garden that is also a 30cm ruler. Stunning!

Because each piece is made-to-order, it can take several months for orders to be fulfilled. But it’s certainly worth the wait! If you’d like one for yourself, White Rabbit Express can assist with your order.
