Here's a very interesting design project by Schuyuan, a recent grad from the University of Portsmouth, (who speaks English, Mandarin and Cantonese...by the way).
Called Design with Life, the project, as described by the artist, was "..to explore a new definition of decoration which brings life to design" .
A very compelling part of the project described above is their Heat-Sensitive wallpaper, which when activated actually blossoms flowers (see below).
