“A rolling stone gathers no moss,” or so the old proverb goes. But in a recent piece that blurs the lines of artistic and functional qualities, it is the 450 million year old moss that is being reinvented. Reworking his award-winning 2006 tatami bench, industrial designer Kazunaga Sakashita removed the tatami seating and – with the help and consultation of bonsai artist Takuya Shimazu – replaced it with delicate moss. Looking at it from above it’s almost as if you’re looking down on a dense forest from a bird’s eye view. Just don’t sit on it with white pants.
