Having a walk on the beach, observing the doves, breathing the new air coming from the other side of the ocean…what it is important is to escape from the usual paradigm: home, work, errand. Nature provides this special break, which is not only an escape but also a return to something long gone but laying deep inside of us. Our natural essence.  

Nature awakes primordial sensations in us. Think about the sound of the wind through the branches of a tree, the taste of a snowflake or the caress of a falling leaf. Nonetheless, it is not always possible nor easy to find a quiet, green place to wind down, especially in town.

The mirrored sculpture will project leafy shadows on your walls. You can determine the intensity of your “forest” with a dimmer switch.  The  sculpture, inspired by the work of the German biologist and artist Ernst Haeckel, is made from hardened plastic powder which can withstand the heat from the LED lamp. “The work of the German painter Casper Friedrich and his romantic depiction of man facing the immensity of the wild was also a great source of inspiration to us”, the artistic duo told online.
