Considering that ikebana, the art of flower arrangement, has been so dominant in the traditional arts in Japan I’m surprised that there aren’t more young artists applying contemporary architectural & design elements to the 600-year old practice. There is Makoto Azuma (who I’ve blogged about in the past) and Hiroyuki Kado makes 2. There are probably others that I just haven’t picked up on.

It’s been about a year since Hiroyuki Kado made a splash at the Ennagon Gallery in SOHO. And just last month it was announced that he was unveiling a space design service. Here are some pics to help you imagine what your next party space could look like!
