From the outdoor ponds and glass jars, modern and minimalist aquariums have evolved into a wide range of specialized systems. They are so beautiful to have them despite the fact that you will need to put some effort in their maintenance. As I used to have one in my home, I can assure you it gives a great pleasure.
Individual aquarium can vary in size – from a small bowl – large enough for only a single small fish, to the huge public aquaria that can simulate entire marine ecosystems. One way to classify aquariums is by salinity.
Fish, kept in brackish water aquaria, generally come from habitats with varying salinity, such as mangrove swamps and estuaries. Sub-types exist within these types, such as the reef aquarium, a typically smaller marine aquarium that houses coral.
There are many interesting ideas for home aquariums and here we present the idea of Japanese designer Haruka Misawa.
In her Waterscapes series, Japanese designer and founder of Misawa Design Institute, Haruka Misawa crafts minimalist aquariums that feature 3D printed objects inspired by marine plant life.
Mimicking coral and other aquatic features, the miniature sculptures are digitally manufactured and placed inside simple square-shaped tanks, creating interesting new homes for fish to swim in-between and hide. What’s particularly smart is the addition of bubbles of air within each aquarium, to supposedly allow plants to thrive.
Enjoy the view as we did!
