Bio Design in the Home - The Beauty of Bacteria

Bio Design in the Home - The Beauty of Bacteria - NYTimes.com.





Interesting take on how Pantone's new colour for 2013 "Emerald" is being used by designers by incorporating bacterial cultures into chandeliers and furniture.
Consider Bacterioptica, a chandelier designed by Petia Morozov of Montclair, N.J., with petri dishes loaded with bacterial cultures nesting in a tangle of fiber optics. The pattern and color of the blooming bacteria (ideally supplied by individual family members, including pets) changes the quality of the light.

Other furniture has been model based on bone structure and DNA models.

I'm not sure how practical this is for someone's home , but it's definitely and interesting idea!
