Sola Cube Showcases with Plants
The concept for Sola Cubes marries two traditional Japanese values: a reverence for nature and a philosophical appreciation of small, humble elements that are easily overlooked. Each cube is cast from crystal clear acrylic resin and then hand polished, right down to its crisp, micro-radial edge. Considerable craftsmanship is required to make the cubes, ensuring that no air bubbles are present.
3.8 billion years have passed since the one single life began on Earth. Later, these lives evolved into flowers, fruit, and seeds. These lives maintained the life cycles for millions upon millions of generations.
The colors and materials each have their own unique purposes. These intriguing shapes have form unpretentiously with each functional purpose by the hand of Mother Nature.
We offer beautifully preserved plants, exquisitely in the form of a 4 x 4 cm acrylic resin cube. Sola cubes can be arranged and combine in multiple patterns to inspire sensitivity and learning. Arrange your Sola cubes, observe them intently, and appreciate the wonder or botanical lives.
By observing a small plant carefully, we are able to glimpse a more perfect world.
We express the name “Sola” with the Chinese kanji 宙, which means “universe.”
This kanji explains everything we know and don’t know, including time and space, with a single character.
Sola also has another meaning: “blue sky.” An imaginary world spreads out like the sky before us.
Every Sola cube is carefully handmade by an experienced Japanese craftsman, and each one takes considerable time and effort to complete. Outstanding craftsmanship is required to ensure that this small transparent cube, which measures only 4cm, holds a plant at its very center and that no air bubbles get inside.
