Please note that due to unpredictable weather conditions, the ikebana event venue is moved from Tadao Ando's Conference Pavilion to Vitrahaus at the same time.

Info from Vitra:

The flowering of cherry blossoms makes early spring one of the most beautiful times on the Vitra Campus. The cherry trees around the Conference Pavilion by Tadao Ando are an integral part of the Japanese architect’s building concept, highlighting their significance in traditional Japanese culture.

Hedy Leung on Ikebana


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.

Places are limited. Please send your request with the workshop date(s), the names of the participants in an email to

Private and corporate workshops are available on request.

A big thank you to Tang Kwok Hin who hosted our first event in Hong Kong at his art space 1983 in Kam Tin, the New Territories - a homey atmosphere warmed my heart which has been away for three years and ten months.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the artists and curators who have contributed to our programmes and exhibitions! We look forward to working with many of you in upcoming projects in Switzerland and Germany in the energetic Year of the Rabbit!
