Nook: 360º See

Tuesday

360º See

360ºSee is a Chicago gallery based on sustainable design, and these creative takes on pop culture trends caught my eye. The rug, as you probably figured out, is made from the skin of the rarely-seen wild Persian bear (kidding). It's actually a piece created by the talented Lisa Leferve. The skate decks feature laser-etched botanical prints on maple by artist Piotr Woronkowicz.



The orbs come from German company called Grassland, which specializes in 'grass art.' The idea is that real grass is grown on polystyrene orbs, then somehow dried and protected so that when you hang it, if slowly changes color from lush green to dried wheat. (At least, I think that's what is going on... Google translation services might have misled me.)
