Designer Haruka Misawa has created a series of minimal aquariums named “Waterscapes” that incorporate 3D printed objects caused by undersea plant life. These works imitate coral and other aquatic flora that small fish use as suppressing places, yet are all produced digitally. The objects are ones that would sound topple or crumble because of their weight, yet because of their underwater location can exist as light additions to the pleasing fish homes.
Within the series, Misawa has also created bubbles of air within the aquariums that allow plants to grow at the center of her works. These meta environments look like miniature fish bowls within larger aquariums, with plants floating at the top of the inside enclosures.
