FLOWERS by NAKED 2018 “Rondo”
23 January – 26 February 2018
Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall
O-hanami, or literally, “blossom viewing”, will not have to wait until April.
The “Flowers by Naked” exhibition offers a unique occasion of o-hanami in an artistic form, for one month from late January at Nihonbashi, close to Tokyo Station.
Enter an enchanted garden to see, feel, touch and smell flowers. The popular event brings together a variety of floral arts, ranging from ikebana (flower arrangements), artificial and preserved flowers, to flowery images and installations, presented splendidly with special effects using projection mapping technology, sound and aroma.
◆ The 2018 theme is Rondo
The third edition of the Nihonbashi exhibition will be delivered under the theme “Rondo”. Anticipate and celebrate the arrival of spring with the presentation of floral arts, dance and music performances, unfolding like a gentle Rondo.
◆10 interactive exhibits
Explore 10 interactive installations, for instance, to make your own flower(s) blossom or take snapshots of an art garden of spring ikebana flowers.
Make your flower blossom in this art presented in collaboration with “LANVIN en bleu”
◆ O-hanami space “Osai”
Can you imagine an o-hanami without a bit of merry-making and tasting sake? Of course not. In the space “Osai”, experience o-hanami joyfully and elegantly under the canopy of a cherry-tree decoration. Taste sake, while watching spring nymphs dancing to the music in rondo form played by the violin (fees for food and drink extra).
◆ Ikebana art
Be ready also to be wowed by a new ikebana installation presented by Akane Teshigahara, the grand master of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana, teamed up with creators of NAKED, Inc.
◆ Early-bird special
