[ENG] The Sola Cubes are created by Japanese designer Koichi Yoshimura and feature real, hand-picked minerals that have been encapsulated in resin cubes. The intriguing patterns within, humbly shaped by nature, are perfectly preserved in a transparent cube where skilled Japanese craftsmen place the mineral, perfectly centered and make sure that no air bubbles are trapped within the cube.

[SWE]Sola Cubes är skapade av den japanske designern Koichi Yoshimura. Kuberna består av handplockade mineraler som sakta sänkts ned i komposit, där de kan för evigt beskådas i sin naturliga glans. Skickliga japanska hantverkare använder sig av kunskap och stort tålamod för att eliminera luftbubblor och se till att mineralen är perfekt centrerad.
