Japan-based designers Daisuke Tsumanuma and Kenichi Yamada of 10¹² Terra are gaining a cult following for their glass terrariums created specially to grow succulents.

Online shop Nalata Nalata recently visited the designers recently in their studio in Ichikawa, Japan, where Tsumanuma and Yamada make the hand-forged metal frames for their Hydro Terrariums and Lid Vision Glass Terrariums.
