Japanese Studio Give Fish Tanks a Minimalist Facelift

In seeing the fish tanks created by Misawa Design Institute, it looks like we’ve been doing our company goldfish a great disservice by simply plastering a seascape sticker onto the back of his aquarium. The Japanese studio’s sculptural aquariums series ‘Waterscape‘ brings the concept of minimalist design into the littlest of artificial habitats with a streamlined design filled with nooks and crannies for our fish friends to explore. According to them: “Underneath the surface of water is a unique environment that exudes an energy which is completely opposite from that which is surrounded by air. The inner space of this fish tank is created by combining two simple elements of container and water, with an extraordinary world created that differs from the world with air.” Sounds like it’s about time we spruce up Sherman’s space.
