NATURE IN THE GLASS ‘An aqua terrarium that represents a rich source of nature, gives a beautiful touch to a brand new office’

Yusuke HommaYusuke Homma
“In the streams flowing deep into the forest, old trees are swept away by the rising water caused by heavy rains, and they remain on the rocks and form a wild and rugged landscape.”
This layout was created to depict a story of how such a natural landscape would be formed. The composition is a bold combination of Sansui Stone and Horn Wood, with abundant use of jungle plants and epiphytic orchids to create a pristine landscape. Mistflow was also used to add a majestic feeling and to retain moisture. While monitoring the dryness of the plants we use Power Cord S-70 to run Mistflow periodically, because if it’s kept continuously running the water will evaporate too quickly. I would be very happy if this aqua terrarium can help the office staff feel relaxed in their office.
