Utopia at Miami Design District

“Utopia” by Bohinc Studio is a friendly and dynamic sculptural installation of irregular organic life-like forms made of cork. Their kind, yet mysterious shapes also assume function; to sit, play, and gather. The 900 egg-shaped birdhouses will hang throughout the neighbourhood’s trees, providing shelter for local wildlife. The sculptures include outdoor seating, tables, and an oversized solar-powered light across the neighbourhood.
