    Default Would you want dried moss on your walls?

    this “moss house” sneak peek comes from oki sato who is behind nendo, a tokyo-based firm specializing in architecture, interiors, product, graphic, furniture and event design.
    The wall pattern made of dried moss is designed by Asami Kiyokawa (Oki’s wife and a famous Japanese artist).

    I love it. So other-worldly. It would probably start to dry and flake after awhile, so it wouldn't be very practical long-term unless it had some very sophisticated preservative on it.

    no. but not because it's moss. it's because it's an ugly design. it would give me a headache.

    I like this. It's done really tastefully.

    Hate the design. I'm intrigued by the dried moss though.

    I like the look, I just think it would be an awful dust magnet. How would you clean dust off of that?

    Not my thing, but if I wanted that design on all my walls, I definately wouldn't choose moss.

    Just let a spark or ember of something waft over to it. That would take care of any cleaning..permanently.

    And besides, it is ugly as hell. Looks like mold growing everywhere. And what about allergies...

    I like the idea... but I'd get creeped out about bugs finding their way in there and laying eggs and shit.

    I love the design. I'm not crazy about the fact that it's moss. I think it would be really neat as an outdoor. Not sure how you;d get it to stick when it rains,, though.

    That was the first thing I thought of; the dust would drive me completely insane. I could imagine trying to use every kind of static charged duster available and losing my mind in the process.

    moss is pretty to look at when it's alive & growing, not when it's dry & dead.
    i agree with sputnik that the pattern is ugly. and boring, too. maybe it will look slightly better if it eventually starts flaking & discolouring in certain places. then the design would become more uneven and thus more aesthetically pleasing?

    with a compressor? very meticulously.

    welcome! with some kind of hydrophobic glue, i guess. but it seems like less trouble if you would actually try to grow moss in a pattern (maybe in a geometrical pattern - that would be cool!) instead of trying to stick it on a surface & hoping it doesn't fall off.
