What is Next Nature?

With our attempts to cultivate nature, humankind causes the rising of a next nature, which is wild and unpredictable as ever. Wild systems, genetic surprises, autonomous machinery and splendidly beautiful black flowers. Nature changes along with us.

Fake for Real: Design for the Masses

Fake for Real: Design for the Masses

The delicate armchair depicted at left is a Finnish design created in 1931-1932 by architect and designer Alvar Aalto (1898-1976), who in Scandinavia is sometimes called the father of modernism. You can buy a remake of this classic armchair for around $1,800. Another option would be to go for the Swedish interpretation: IKEA offers its PoƤng armchair for a mere $79. This version includes an extra piece of wood on the back, which makes the chair fully monkey proof.
