Sola Cube: Dandelion
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 Dandelion plant consists of a fluffy round ball that acts as a high-performance parachute. When it rains the parachute closes up like an umbrella and, when it dries, it reopens to carry its seeds through the sky.
