DMY Berlin Youngsters 2009 – Mushrooms Ate My Furniture

June 4th, 2009

“Mushrooms Ate My Furniture” is piece of garden furniture designed by Shinwei Rhoda Yen. The outer side of the stool is made of the hard-wood larch, the bark on the inner side is birch or pine embedded with mushrooms’ spawn. After some time the mushrooms will grow and degrade the wood. Eventually the stool will fall apart, the mushrooms ate it.

Towards Paradise

September 24th, 2008

Gustafson Porter and Gustafson Guthrie Nichol are the landscape architects who designed this installation called ‘Towards Paradise’, for this years Venice Biennale Architecture. They used helium balloons to create these floating clouds over the garden of the Arsenale in Venice.
All I think of now is the music video of Little Fluffy Clouds by The Orb.

This garden shower by Viteo is an upside down shower. You connect it to your garden hose and by stepping on it you’ll get 4 meter high water jets. That’s definitely a different kind of shower experience.
