Azuma Makoto is a florist and botanical artist, known for incorporating nature into his fantastical and often surreal work. This Bicycle, from the artist’s Botanical series, is covered in AstroTurf, but still functions as a ride-able bike. Each Bike is unique and sells for about $5,000.

Chamber home design boutique and gallery on West 23rd Street is currently hosting a selection of new creations from botanically-minded Japanese artist Azuma Makoto. We especially love this bean-shaped Sofa and Table set covered in vibrant green AstroTurf! Talk about successfully bringing nature indoors!

Each piece has what looks to us like a single, sprouted Leek bulb accent. This makes more sense when you see some of the other objects designed by Makoto, such as an array of crystal glass boxes shaped like seeds, sprouted bulbs suspended in acrylic cubes, and a tabletop collection of fungi dipped in precious metals, all of which are available in the boutique through April 30th, 2016.
