The art of bonsai has been given a new twist by Japanese firm Hoshinchu with a levitating & rotating bonsai. Air Bonsai fuses the art of bonsai and the creative application of levitation technology to reflect both traditional Japanese aesthetics and modern design.
Air Bonsai consists of two main parts a plant vessel – “little star” made of moss or lava stone and a porcelain base – “energy base”. Built-in magnets allow the “little star” to float and rotate two centimeters above the “energy base”.
The plant vessel can hold a maximum weight of 300 grams allowing for a variety of plant types from a traditional “Matsu” pine to a flowering “Sakura”. Hoshinchu also offers a one-of-a-kind “energy base” handcrafted by a dedicated craftsman.
