Wow – mono°goen° just released their latest line of products en-gi (en°木), a series of hybrid-plant furniture inspired by storytelling. Each piece contains a living plant that grows, perpetually changing the look of the furniture. Each piece is also based on a concept, or a story, if you will, created by art director Chie Morimoto. Really fun and playful work!
Formed last year, mono°goen° is a collaboration between art director Chie Morimoto, sculptor Yuji Kamioka and designer Ji-Lin Hsu. All of the furniture (185,000 – 385,000 yen) is made-to-order.
