If you’re in the market for green curtains you could certainly buy some made of organic cotton, but we recently saw an option on Tokyo Green Space that seems a lot cooler. This living curtain is made of sun-loving morning glories and shades 3331 Arts Chiyoda, an old junior high school that was recently converted into exhibition galleries, art studios office space. The installation, which was created by Katsuhiko Hibino, has a really interesting story behind it too. Apparently, the flower seeds that grew into the curtain were previously taken to space by Japanese astronaut Naoko Yamasaki!
