The Sogetsu School of Ikebana celebrating its 90th anniversary and decided to commemorate the event by putting on an exhibition titled Hana So (Fireworks).

For the exhibition, the school’s headteacher Akane Teshigahara commissioned Nendo to create a site-specific installation that would span the first floor of Tokyo’s Sogetsu Plaza, where the school is based.

This space was designed as a stone garden by landscape architect and artist Isamu Noguchi, and is dominated by grey-toned rock that has been carved into different surfaces.

“The biggest challenge was how to transform the space into an inspiring and exciting environment,” said Teshigahara. “After a lot of thinking, I decided to entrust the venue design to design office Nendo, led by world-renowned designer Oki Sato.”

Nendo said it had worked with an entirely site-specific approach, designing the installation in response to the features of Sogetsu Plaza.
