Weather Scales

Modern science may be able to explain the forces governing the sun, the wind and the rain, yet we are still able to marvel at a magnificent sunset or a fierce downpour. And so Evelien Nijenhuis aimed to visualise our wonder at the natural phenomena defining the skies above us in series of objects designed for all weathers. A large dish with a special coating changes colour when exposed to sunlight, a wind spoon gives way to even the slightest breeze and a sculptural funnel with a floating needle reveals how much it has rained.
