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.
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.

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.
