Chia Pets, you just got OWNED
Move over Chia, you’re just a loser now and no one wants you. Why? Because you’ve been replaced by much cooler things, and not even your new Obama pet can save you. The redonculously expensive decorative pieces are the product of Matteo Cibic‘s imagination and cost almost a thousand dollars. Well, the white ones cost 100 Euro, but not the one that I like! And while I can easily think of a number of other plants whose bypoducts cost [slightly] less but deliver much more of a punch, I really want one of these. Matteo…can I have one? I like the one with the gold pants. I’m making my sexy face right now…you can’t resist me.
Much like the word ‘fugly,’ the concept behind the name ‘Domsai’ is pretty obvious. It’s a dome over a bonsai- a miniature plant encased in a container. Dome-bonsai..Domsai. So, from what I understand, the top of these little torso-less people are made of blown glass, and no two are alike. They’re relatively simple as the design goes, but they’re pretty. I’m not sure if the plant is real or not, but I’m assuming that it is because the top part looks like it pops off for easy watering. BUT, I’m not sure I’d be too happy if the cactus in my 500 Euro Domsai died after a week. I don’t care if it turns brown and shrivelly…it had better last forever.
Below you will also find pictures of two of Cibric’s other designs; more notably part of the Bibelot Sexuel collection– the lamp/sex toy that offers hours of endless amusement concealed in the base of your ordinary table lamp. Ah, Matteo, you make the fire in our trousers.
