Polygon-Wrapped Floral Arrangements by Norihiko Terayama

May 18, 2018

Kate Sierzputowski

Japanese designer Norihiko Terayama suspends simple floral arrangements in polygonal forms, contrasting the organic material with straight, meticulous lines. With the simple addition of pins and thread his series Crust of the Polygon reframes the dried plants as poetic sculptures. Another one of his series, Polygon of Tree Branch, features full branches encased in a similar geometric style.

Terayama studied at Design Academy Eindhoven where he trained under designer Richard Hutten and was immersed in Dutch conceptual design. His company Studio Note designs home and lifestyle products which often incorporate natural elements. You can see more projects by the Japanese designer on his website.

Collapsible Leaves: Plant Sculptures by Azuma Makoto

July 30, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Artist and designer Azuma Makoto (previously here and here) was born in 1976 and runs a haute couture flower shop called JARDINS des FLEURS in Moto-Azabu, Tokyo. His work with plants and flowers also extends into personal artistic practice and client work where he creates a wide variety of sculptures, installations and objects using tress, leaves, moss, and other plants both organic and artificial. One of his most recent exhibitions, Collapsible Leaves at Eye of Gyre Gallery involved a remarkable collection of suspended and mounted sculptures made of tightly folded and layered leaves. The pieces are unique in that I imagine they must have required rapid assembly a single leaf at a time, and yet look as if they are naturally occurring objects. If you’re just learning about Makoto’s work for the first time, be sure to also check out his suspended trees and other private works.
