25-year-old Makoto Murayama is a Japanese CG（computer graphics） illustrator, but apparently he is also qualified to be a botanist judged by the recent pictures he did for DCA - a digital creation contest sponsored by Japan’s top chemical industry guru Toray.
Inspired by some mediaeval European exquisite botanical drawings, Murayama created quite a vision of plants’ mechanical structure, showing us the radiant original beauty of the flowers in our living rooms.
Implications - Tired of the bevy of dark styles emerging, contemporary consumers are looking for ways to stay simple. Products featuring a subtler aesthetic are appealing to those who want to be reminded of more classic times.
