Recreating Rain.

Because I've already featured a handful of posts about Japanese design firm Nendo, gushing over their ingenious chocolate paint, and pencils, and beautiful Winnie-the-Pooh-inspired furniture, I thought twice before writing another. But, impassioned fan (and word lover) that I am, I couldn't resist.

Below, their latest: an installation that visually illustrates twenty of Japan's fifty different words for rain. Included: sleet and unexpected downpours, evening rain and rain commingling with dust. See more at mocoloco, here.

Fittingly, I'm writing this as rain falls in New York City. Stay dry, New Yorkers!
