The Mitochondria by TerraLiving

"The Mitochondria" is an embodiment of beauty and elegance from the world of science, art, and computational design.


• • • Design concept & philosophy • • •


Mitochondria are "nuclear reactors" or powerhouse of the cell. They are double membrane-bound organelles found in most eukaryotic organisms (ranging from plants to animals).


Without mitochondria, advanced life forms like us, humans will never exist.


Through an expression known as biomorphism, our designers create artistic design elements based on naturally occurring patterns, in this case, the very structure of mitochondria.


"The Mitochondria's" parametric structure planes are inspired by the "cristae" (inner mitochondrial membrane folds), whereas the geometrical glass sculpture and base signifies the outer membrane of mitochondria.


By transplanting each parametric plane with our ZERO Moss to form a complete botanical sculpture, we hope to deliver a surreal and meaningful art-piece that allows its collector to indulge in the miracle of life.
