Relaxing Minimalist Aquariums by Haruka Misawa

There’s something uniquely calming about an aquarium. The slowly swirling water, the devil-may-care fish, the minimalist, 3D-printed aquatic flora. Well, that last one may only apply if you’re looking at one of Japanese designer Haruka Misawa’s “Waterscapes.” This series of modern aquariums, which we first spotted over at Colossal, feature complex structural elements created with a 3D printer, which, taking inspiration from coral and other natural underwater life, provide homes for real fish and play beautifully with the interchange of air and water. This is living art. See more of Misawa’s work here.
