As seen in venerated design blogs such as the Contemporist, Freshomeand Yanko Design, we are proud to have on display the world premier of Industrial Designer Adrian Magu's latest masterpiece. The Kasokudo Bonsai Planter is a fusion of form meets function. It is inspired from Adrian's interest for everything green and his work in the automotive industry.
Referencing speed forms and manufacturing processes used in transportation design, this piece juxtaposes movement applied to what is usually a static object.The piece gives the impression of an accelerating form that effortlessly floats to house a bonsai tree, evoking a perfect balance of dynamic harmony.
The latest manufacturing processes of the highly polished finishes of the planter and 3D-printed ‘mountains’ contrast to that of nature that usually takes many decades to grow, sculpt and form the gnarled bonsai forms.
In all, a unique synthesis of cutting-edge precision with the imperfect beauty of nature.
The stunning Kasokudo is on display at our CLU. showroom in Richmond, VIC until 22 December 2014.
