WHAT IS LEAFLING?

LEAFLING_Infografik_ENLEAFLING is a new plant object consisting of handmade paper with incorporated plant seeds in the shape of letters and symbols. As soon as the paper pad is moistened, the seeds begin to germinate and grow as green letters or symbols. You don´t need any soil – just water, light and some time.

  • 100% handmade
  • 100% biological
  • 100% decomposable

LEAFLING is an experimental object, designed from an interest in type design via vibrant growth processes, created by the Austrian graphic designer Julian Hagen. Light conditions, germination and seedling development, factors that cannot be calculated, are adopted as design principles that influence the legibility of each letter.

The user is invited to grow and take care of the LEAFLING, turning into a type gardener, watching each letter transform from regular to bold, from bold to ultra black… a surprise from A-Z.
