La Whyixd, an interesting Asian design company, placed 140 floral kinetic sculptures in the hall of a building in Taiwan.
The kinetic sculptures are part of a dynamic art installation called "heaven bloom". It stands on the wall of a building built in collaboration with a large construction company, the Goldenjade development corporation, and Woha, a well-known architectural firm in Singapore.
Natural inspiration, floral development
The entire building that houses the work is inspired by nature: for this reason the idea of creating an installation that "mimics" the behavior of flowers seems a natural consequence.
Whyixd literally "sowed" the flowers into the concrete as if they blossomed directly on the surface of the wall, opening up to the world. The overlapping effect on the marble texture is of eternal beauty: both classic and futuristic. Not postmodern, if anything A-Modern.
The 140 mechanical flowers "dance" following the rhythm of the music diffused in the large room where they are housed.
White rhododendron, beautiful and adaptive: how the future should be
The kinetic sculptures imitate a variety of white rhododendron flower that grows only on one of the 100 mountains that surmount Taiwan, that of Nanhu.
It is a flower with extreme adaptability, even in extreme climates: its rust yellow color quickly changes to snow white when flowering is complete.
In the installation "heaven bloom" the kinetic sculptures show all their beauty in both stages of flowering. They open and close rhythmically with a harmony that fills the eyes and satisfies the spirit.
And they do not even need to be watered, which makes these "flowers" particularly attractive for myself and its endemic lack of time.
In the near future, kinetic sculptures of this type will be a must to give to friends, or a mass interior trend design and they will show off in the living rooms (or in the bedrooms, I don't set limits) of our homes.
