DNA 11, the company that previously brought us personalized DNA portraits on canvas, is looking into expanding its offerings and has set up a website called DNA 11 Labs, where it has put a few new exciting designs and people can vote which idea should go into production first. So far the listed ideas include a rug, wallpaper, glass portraits, a waterwall, and a fingerprint bowl. However, you can also submit your own ideas, or if you can’t wait, pre-order either the rug or the waterwall. All this beauty won’t come cheap, as pre-order prices for the rugs are listed as $999 to $4999 depending on size.
The old-fashioned DNA portraits are also still available for order at a more affordable 164 euros. The procedure for acquiring the art is simple: you receive a DNA collection kit, swab the inside of your cheek and send it back to the company, after which they extract the DNA and create a southern blot-like print of it. The pattern can be printed in one of 25 standard colors or custom color-matched to your interior. Here is a short video of a DNA waterwall installed on a NY city rooftop:
