The Maison Floraïku has produced a series of high class perfumes dedicated to ikebana (each of them accompanied by a specially designed haiku) and the essential store Campomarzio70 has decided to involve us in the official presentation of this line of truly spectacular perfumes. Once again, we represent Sogetsu ikebana in Rome in such a prestigious space.

From Tuesday 5 in the essential store there will be some of our arrangements inspired by this line of perfumes while on the 6th evening guests who want to intervene will also be greeted by an arrangement that the teacher Otani will realize for the occasion.

After the wonderful experience of Essenza we return again to this particular paradise of perfumes a stone’s throw from Piazza di Spagna to talk about the unique path that unites ikebana with the world of perfumes.

Oriental art continues to be at home at the Garda Museum which will host, from 19 to 21 October “Ikebana – the way of flowers”, the international exhibition, realized with the contribution of the CRT Foundation and the Guelpa Foundation, under the patronage of the Consulate General of Japan in Italy and the Piedmont Region.

Artists of the Wafu Kai school in Ivrea led by Ingrid Galvagni Tosei, the Ohara schools in Milan, Kagei Adachi in Zurich, Sogetsu in Rome, Florence, Venice and Merano, and Ichiyo in Geneva, together for the first time in Italy, will exhibit their ikebana at the PA civic museum Garda.
The guest of honor of the exhibition will be Geneviève Kokera Ausenda, Grand Master Ohara, who, throughout her life with great passion and commitment, has contributed to spreading the art of the ikebana.

Wafu Kai
Wafu school was founded in 1896 by Wafu Teshigahara. In 1946 the director of the school (iemoto), the eldest son of the founder, introduced a new style of ikebana. A tireless artist, he presented his works all over the world, wanting to transmit through the ikebana a message of peace and understanding among peoples. His personal vision of the art of ikebana, summed up in the motto “flowers that you like – suitably – in a container that you like”, spread to Japan, the United States and South America. Since 1992, the current iemoto follows in the footsteps of its two predecessors.

Ohara school, founded by Unshin Ohara at the end of the 19th century but officially only in 1912, emphasizes seasonal characteristics, natural growth processes and the beauty of natural environments. It is an address that has developed, in particular, moribana style defined to represent through floral compositions an idea of ​​landscape with literary and pictorial connotations and defined Bunjin and Rimpa.

Kagei Adachi
Choka Adachi, founder of Kagei Adachi school in 1912, was intended to free ikebana from traditional forms and styles. The criteria he advocated were to emphasize the asymmetry, water as a vital element of plants, had to be visible as part of the composition.

Sogetsu School (literally “Grass and Moon”) was founded in 1927 by Sofu Teshigahara, an artist interested in the modern world and strongly influenced by the opening of Japan’s borders. He “removed” the ikebana from his usual position: the tokonoma. Using new materials and innovative techniques he stated that: ikebana can be done by everyone at any time, anywhere with any material.

Ichiyo school, founded in 1937 by Meikof Kasuya and his sister Ichiyo, tried to adapt ikebana to the contemporary way of living while maintaining traditions and teachings of the past. In 1983, Akihiro Kasuya became the third school iemoto and introduced theatrical performances, realizing ikebana in which balance and technique of tension predominate.

Ikebana (“living flowers”) is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. While similar western art forms often emphasize the number and the color of the flowers used, ikebana emphasizes the
use of lines and of “empty” spaces. Few flowers and branches suffice to create an artful yet simple and clear arrangement.
Nowadays, ikebana can be included in the visual arts. Its main (but not sole) components are flowers, but materials such as plastic, metal or scrap metal may also be used in floral arrangements.
During the Merano Spring event, an ikebana exhibition and two ikebana workshops are held at Merano’s Thermal Baths and presented by the Concentus Study Group.

The masters, together with the teachaer Anne Justo, will guide us towards ‘the way of flowers’, a splendid path that proposes seven works witnessing the continuous and fruitful dialogue between art and nature, as masters of the universe. Ikebana is an art regulated by ancient traditions and poetic symbolism, so we will immerse ourselves in the infinite shades of flowers.
“Ikebana should not be considered a fixed object.
Ikebana is constantly fluctuating.
You should not give ikebana a shape.
Ikebana has a new shape for every new Era.”
(Hiroshi Teshigahara)”
