Basel and Zurich Chapters Annual Exhibition

Ikebana gives life to the present moment.

Every moment counts,

not one moment repeats itself.

 

Ikebana is an encounter between humans and plants.

Flowers and stems are given a new life

when they are arranged in a vessel or a space.

 

Ikebana allows flowers and vessels,

which exist on their own, to become one.

A different harmonious beauty is created.

 

Ikebana is a tactile art.

Enjoying visual movement through our hands,

it allows us unique opportunities to experience the flower,

the vessel and space.

 

In the practice of Ikebana,

we will explore the flower’s rhythm flows

in our imaginations and the inspiring energy

between the organic vessels and the plant arrangements.
