The Air Bonsai Requires Little to No Attention

The Air Bonsai is perfect for the horticulturally-challenged individual. As its name ambiguously refers to, the Air Bonsai is an inflatable plant that requires little to no tender, love and care--it is not a plant that floats in the air, unless helium is used to inflate it.

Created by Japan-based design duo WabiSabi, the Air Bonsai may not add fresh greenery to the home or office, but it will still add a whimsical, minimalist and modern touch of nature. Available in two 'colors,' black and clear, the Air Bonsai also comes in two different shapes. One is slimmer with a chunkier base while the other is wider with a smaller base.

The Air Bonsai won the 2012 JAGDA Award.
