In Japan, many abandoned wood building materials cause serious environment-related problems. Therefore, it is important to make a sustainable product by using such abandoned materials. A new product design was made through the collaboration between a designer and plant producers. The theme is decomposing: this product can be decomposed into soil. It doesn’t cause any problem: kind to the earth. While plants in this product are growing, its plant vase starts decomposing, disappearing through a long period. To offer such recyclable product living in harmony with our precious planet will make our life more satisfactory and richer.
