No, It Is Not An Illusion. It Actually Floats!
We have seen many great home decor pieces, but we hadn’t seen one that attracted as much attention as this Air Bonsai by Hoshinchu. Bonsai is much more than a decor plant, its a culture. The bonsai practice originated in Asia and is mainly representative of the Japanese culture. It is a symbol of patience and dedication as it can take decades to properly grow a Bonsai. For this reason, the eastern hemisphere considers the Bonsai a symbol of wealth. A properly grown plant can sell for a couple of hundreds or even a few thousand dollars. The team at the Hoshinchu atelier has developed a modernized, yet traditional option to grow your Bonsai. The Air Bonsai offers a way to show your plant on a levitating platform. Powered by electromagnetic forces, the plant floats from the base and naturally turns slowly, making the Air Bonsai an instant topic of conversation for everyone in the room. Even though we have not tried the product yet, the videos and explanation are available on Kickstarter. We certainly can’t wait to get our hands on a Ippon-matsu, which is a 5 year old tree being offered to the project backers. This will definitely be the ultimate way for us to invest our O.C.D. while giving some life to the living room.
