Sola Cube: Immortelle
Showcasing the beauty and wonder of nature
3.8 billion years ago life began on earth. And over millions of years multicellular life evolved into land plants and forests. The colors and shapes of flowers, fruits and seeds all have unique purposes and are as beautiful as they are functional.
Intent on showcasing the wonder and beauty of mother nature, Koichi Yoshimura developed a way to exquisitely preserve plants in acrylic cubes. He called them “Sola Cubes.”
Each Sola Cube is handmade by Japanese craftsmen and contain a real plant. The Immortelle is a biennial that grows on dry, rocky or sandy ground, and gets its name from its extraordinary longevity. According to mythology, the long lasting radiant beauty of the flower impressed the Greeks so much that they crowned the images and statues of Apollo with it.
