"The biophilia hypothesis suggests that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life."
A seating collection I designed as a Design class project at the Academy of fine arts Sarajevo.
Being very much nature oriented and interested in biophilic design, I decided to design seating that also serves as a plant vivarium, and uses the beauty of the plants inside as the main aesthetic point of the collection. It is intended for use in lobbies and other public space interiors, where people can relax and enjoy the beauty of the plants.
The closed ecosystem inside the glass makes a perfect environment for the plants, and also eases the maintenance of the plants.
I also made a 1:10 scale model.
