Wednesday Whim - Elkebana

For most of us, flowers are beautifully arranged in a vase in our home to enhance the scent and sight of the space. In Japan, the specific type of floral arrangement is considered a craft known as ikebana with a focus on minimalism and a harmonious combination of nature and humanity. Designer, Fabio Milito, took this concept and applied it towards Elkebana, creating a playful twist on the craft and the notion of wall trophies.

Collaborating with Paula Studio, the design team created two glass-blown tubes mounted on a birch wood base and arranged various flowers, branches and bamboo for display. The product encourages people to proudly display their own arrangements in a trophy-like manner. The result is a whimsical rendition of showcasing your botanical trophy. 


Elkebana is actually available for purchase through Crowdy House.

  2. These are all so beautiful. I love the minimalism. The way they're arranged reminds me of antlers or antennas. Thanks for sharing :)

  4. Wow, I love the way this looks! I think the yellow blooms are my favorite and I like how you can really switch it up by putting different flowers in the tubes.
