FURNITURE & OBJECT DESIGN: The Oihara Research Project

Naturalistic Furniture & Objects designed and photographed by Lena C Emery

There is an emerging consensus that the health of the planet depends on the coexistence between rapidly growing cities and the natural world, yet few frameworks or tools are being provided to allow those living in cities to incorporate nature within their encapsulated lives. Drawing on the insights of the natural world, The Oihara Research Project [TORP] examines possible solutions through the creation of functional objects and daily rituals based in nature.
