Howdy folks! Are you ready to take a look at something that combines all of design internet's favorite things? It's a tiny house! That's 3D printed! And Full! Of! Succulents!

Innovative 3D printing studio Emerging Objects built the Cabinet of Curiosities with 4,500 tiles born of a 3D printer. And while the frame of the house itself isn't 3D printed, the tiles were printed using the company's Seed Stitch technology, a knitted ceramic wall system. The living front wall is made of "Planter Tiles" which are made from different shades of Portland cement and then arranged in patterns that enable them to hold plants.

"All the components are sustainable and made from natural or upcycled waste streams," Emerging Objects founder Ronald Rael told 3D Printing Industry, "ceramic, sawdust, recycled Chardonnay grape skins and corn-based bio-plastics." The interior walls are covered in Chroma Curl Wall, which uses the aforementioned corn-based bio-plastic to create a relief textures, and color changing LED lights.

The Cabinet of Curiosities is an interesting step in the evolution of 3D printed housing. It offers up an option that is both environmentally friendly and beautiful in a more earthy (and less spaceship-y) way than other recent examples.
