Space Age Terrariums

Domsai_allMeet the Domsai! Space men from another planet? Try Milan, where these 10-inch ETs debuted at 2009’s Design Week. Matteo Cibic—a multi-threat creative director for architecture, design and ad brands—describes his little guys as a kind of tamagotchi for desks or side tables. These terrariums require a bit of water and sunlight, which suits Cibic's aesthetic: user interaction is a hallmark of his work. Produced in the tiny Northern Italian commune of Nove, a hot bed of ceramics, these anthropomorphic planters are all one of a kind - they are hand cast and mouth blown.

$140 at A+R.
