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.

Leaf Thermometer

Designer Hideyuki Kumagai must have been inspired by the seasonal colors of nature when he designed this thermometer.

Stick the leaves to your window, or make a bush at your office garden, and they will tell you how hot it is by changing color. If it is nice and warm (20-25 degrees) the leaves stay fresh green. When it becomes cooler they slowly turn brown. And if they turn yellow, then you know it is time to cool down.
