Cone is a project developed under the direction of Michael Anastassiades during an internship at his studio. 

Born from a research around sprouting seeds and growing small trees, it is a simple truncated cone made out of brass which can fit on top of any glass. By placing a sprouted acorn in the center of the cone, with the root touching the water, a small oak tree will grow in a few week. Once it is tall enough it can be removed from the cone and planted in the soil.

This object is now part of the Floating Forest Series (2015) by studio Michael Anastassiades.
