Recreating Rain.

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

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!

What a lovely find!
(And I am LOVING today's rain. We are homebodies today, so the view mixed with a spicy fall candle makes it just about perfect.) ;)

So refreshing. Especially during this heat wave we are having in California!

50 different words for rain? Gasp - just another reason to love Japan :)
