Zip it Up in the Garden
July 5, 2009 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
I love people, and gardens, that don’t take themselves too seriously, those with wit and humor. Taiwanese sculptor/artist Ju Ming has created the zipper pond, a creative lotus pond and one of the feature attractions at Taiwan’s Juming Museum, located in Jinshan, an hour’s drive from Taipei City.
Complimenting the pond are his other amusing creations, the zipper rock and…
…the zipper tent. You could add livable space to your urban habitat with one of these!
I also came across this zipper vase by d-vision, a talented group of Israeli designers. Unzip and you can make room for more than a single bud.
And for the serving, this plate by Lilach Lotan.
And this set of 3 porcelain plates by urbanaddition.
Although possibly more appropriate for an indoor space, in keeping with the theme, is the Zipper Luminaire by John Niero for Justnotnormal.
