Captivated by these half-glass, half-knitted vases developed by Italian designer, Sofia Lazzeri and Swiss designer, Alexandra Denton. The collaborative project is appropriately called Innesti, “the Italian word for grafting, a botanic technique used to join tissue from one plant with another, with the purpose of creating new varieties.”
“Their project aims to enhance the voices of the materials and stimulate an aesthetic experience that celebrates contrasts, knowledge and tradition.”

Jen Stark is the contemporary artist behind these amazing hand cut paper sculptures. She draws inspiration from patterns in nature, wormholes and sliced anatomy. The intricate geometric works are further highlighted by her use of vibrant colors. On a recent interview she says this of her work:
“There are so many natural forms that have complex mathematical equations that we don’t even know how to calculate, yet is seems like this equation flows through so many living things from fractals to snowflakes, and from the shape of a hurricane to the similar-looking milky way galaxy. I love to think that there is a secret answer to all these mysteries and am trying to discover it through my artwork.”
