“The New York-based design firm Okeanos Aquascaping is shaking up the architectural realm by transforming ordinary rooms into one-of-a-kind spaces with custom-made aquariums, ponds and water features. The company, founded by Martin Schapira and Nathan Kamelhar, is showcasing its newest innovation, Elevate, which displays succulents in a lab-grade glass vessel that sits above the surface (hence the name). Whether you enjoy just plants or an additional hand-painted skull (limited-edition skulls crafted by Alec Monopoly, King Saladeen and Martinius Maximus the Third are also available), this terrarium display is sure to turn heads. Available at isolat-e.com, starts at $325.”
